  • Cardi B first solo woman to win rap album Grammy

Becoming the first female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album wasn't the only highlight of the night for Cardi B.

Not only did she win for the Best Rap Album, making her the first female emcee to get that honor, but she was also actually nominated in a total of seven categories!

The internet celebrity turned bona fide rap star then dropped her album "Invasion of Privacy" - the work that captured this year's top rap Grammy - in 2018 to critical and commercial acclaim, assuring Cardi a seat at the table in the male-dominated world of hip-hop.

Grande has repeatedly paid homage to Miller since he died of an accidental overdose in September; she has posted photos and videos of him on Instagram and numerous songs on her new album, released on Friday, appear to be written about him.

But, the debate continues with no signs of ending.

The 26-year-old held back tears while she accepted the award and seem to stumble over her words during her speech.

"Invasion of Privacy" beat out albums by the late Mac Miller, Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T and Travis Scott. "Maybe I need to start smoking weed".

Cardi B's Grammy night was a grand one!

Cardi B knows how to bring the house down! The nerves are so bad!

She also took to her platform again, saying that she was not actually trying to diss Cardi. "I read an article that Mac Miller's family said that if he don't win, they want me to win. Didn't go to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days, pregnant. while everybody was harassing me like 'You can't do it'".
