It seems Cardi B doesn’t mess around when it comes to gig fees.
Cardi revealed the figure while clapping back at an online troll who said she recently ‘performed in someone’s back garden’ during the city’s world-famous art festival, Art Basel.
Cardi boasted in a now-deleted tweet alongside a screenshot of the hefty payslip: “I got [paid] 1 million dollars to perform at this elite banker’s private event for 400 people and only for 35 minutes.”
She added: “Think about that when you type about this Grammy winner.” Does g’wan girl come to mind for anyone else?
UNILAD has approached Cardi’s representatives for comment.
Cardi’s trip to Miami comes shortly after she shared a touching tribute to her husband Offset’s former bandmate Takeoff after he was shot and killed in Houston last month.
Born Kirshnik Khari Ball, Takeoff was the youngest member of Migos, the Grammy-nominated rap trio from suburban Atlanta that also featured his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset.
He was killed when someone opened fire at a Houston bowling alley following an altercation.
Sharing a statement on Instagram, Cardi penned: “Takeoff your untimely passing has brought a great deal of pain and sorrow to so many lives.
“The impact you had in this world was so considerable and we have struggled to grasp this tragedy. I am heartbroken but I am grateful for all the precious memories we got to share while you were here with us.
“This has truly been a nightmare and the pain is incomparable.”
This month, police arrested two people following Takeoff’s fatal shooting.
Houston police announced on 2 December that 33-year-old Patrick Xavier Clark had been charged with murder in connection with the rapper’s death.
Another man was arrested earlier that week in relation to the case but is not believed to have fired the weapon.
The 28-year-old was one of three people police said were shot outside the downtown bowling alley around 2.30am on 1 November, when a dispute erupted as about 40 people were leaving a private party at the alley.
Police have said another man and a woman suffered non-life threatening gunshot injuries during the shooting, in which at least two people opened fire.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said the day after the shooting that Takeoff was 'well respected', and there was 'no reason to believe he was involved in anything criminal at the time'.
