Cardi B’s résumé boasts a lot of feats: major fashion deals, a highly-successful debut album, and now, five Grammy nods, all of which have afforded her the funds to ball out on all the Lamborghinis she frequently raps about. However, even with five (!) luxury vehicles sitting in her driveway, hip-hop’s golden child hasn’t quite mastered the art of driving. Good thing she has friends like James Corden who can lend a helping hand.
On the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke, Cardi B hops in the car with Corden, as the two kick off the ride with a boisterous rendition of the Bronx rapper’s hit “Bodak Yellow” with new adlibs — “woo woo woo woo”–and Cardi rapping out the window to cars passing by. Of course, Cardi loves the kids, so when James passes a group of children, the rapper leaves them with some parting words. “Stay in school. Listen to your mom or you won’t be getting any Christmas gifts,” she yells, before encouraging the kids to tell their parents to buy her new single, “Money.”
While on the topic of money, Corden asks his guest just how many cars she has. Cardi lists all five of her vehicles — two Lamborghinis, a Bentley truck, a Maybach and a Chevy Suburban– which leaves Corden stunned since she doesn’t actually know how to drive. What’s the point of having cars you can’t drive? “To take pictures with it,” she quipped. Corden adds that she can just take photos in the showroom, to which she replies, “Nah, that’s being an imposter.” The late-night show host decided to give Cardi a quick lesson so she’ll be able to drive her cars, which ended with lots of safety cones tumbled over. Ultimately, the two decided to go back to doing what Cardi is best at, rapping, and performed “Drip.”
Luckily, no bodies were harmed in the making of the video. A camera? Possibly.
