Born Belcalis Almanzar, the Bronx native, self-proclaimed "Trap Selena" went from moonlighting as an adult entertainer to Billboard-topping rapper faster than most finish a college degree.

Add several endorsement deals and well, you eclipse a net worth of an estimated $8 million and counting, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Ever hear of the phrase, "A millionaire has more than one job"? Well, Cardi is a prime example of that expression. Let's break down how she acquired her assets.

She first made an appearance on "Love and Hip-Hop."

Introduced as a "Regular, degular, schmegular girl from the Bronx" Cardi joined VH1's "Love & Hip Hop: New York" in 2015 during season six and quickly rose to fan-favorite status.

Unapologetic and quick with the quips, Cardi'searly proclamation that anyone who had beef with her would have beef with her "foreva" solidified her reputation as one of the franchise's most entertaining cast members.

While it's unclear how much she earned as a cast member, it apparently wasn't enough to keep her as she departed after two seasons to pursue a career in music.

She topped the charts with "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)."

June 16, 2017 would ultimately prove to be the day America was officially introduced to Cardi B.

Atlantic Records, Cardi's label, released her debut single "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" that day and one month later, "Bodak Yellow" entered the top two of Billboard's Hot 100 list. In September 2017, "Bodak Yellow" finally claimed the list's top spot, making her the first female rapper to do so with a solo single since Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998.

Since then, Cardihas been headlining music festivals,collaborating with other chart-topping artists and of course, promoting herdebut album.

In September 2017, AOL estimated her wealth was between $4 and 5 million and just seven months later on September 25th, rose to a reported $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. 

What's Next for Cardi B?

On July 10, 2018, Cardi B and husband Offset(from Atlanta-based hip-hop group Migos) welcomed their first child, a daughter named Kulture Kiari Cephus.
