Cardi B is shutting down the notion she’s always using a ghostwriter, saying she actually pens her raps.
Following the release of her “Point Me 2” collab with FendiDa Rapper. Earlier this morning, a Twitter user wrote, “I don’t care who writes it. Cardi B is hard AF!” about the song — leading the Bronx rapper to chime in.
I don’t care who writes it. Cardi B is hard AF!

Even with Cardi’s invite, the original poster still gave credit where it was due. “She raps with conviction. Every time!” he added.
“Once Cardi B releases another classic album in 2023,” another user commented on the post. “She’ll end up being a top 5 woman rapper once it’s all said & done respectively. Her features are too consistent.”
Over the years, Cardi B has pushed back against similar claims about her songwriting and having ghostwriters. “I do write a lot of my sh*t that’s the thing,” she said in 2019, according to Billboard. “Yes just like every other artist I do have a couple writer that help with hooks but I wrote plenty of songs on my album specially my mixtape.”
She also took home the ASCAP Songwriter Of The Year award that same year.
