Cardi B is about to have her haters on 100!

Ahead of BET Award weekend where Cardi is leading the pack of nominees, and also performing–the Billboard chart slayer just became the first female rapper to be named Songwriter of the Year during ASCAP’s 34th annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. last night (June 20) according to Billboard:

Honored earlier in the evening for her songwriting on such most-performed ASCAP songs as “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage, “Ring” featuring Kehlani and “I Like It,” Cardi B held the rapt attention of a cheering audience inside the Beverly Wilshire Hotel ballroom.

“I just want to say I’m very grateful,’ Cardi B began after accepting the award from ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. “Sometimes I feel like I’m not doing too much because when it comes to female rappers, it’s like you’re never doing too much or they’re always pitting you against another female rapper. People on my team are like ‘Cardi, you’re crazy. You won a Grammy. Cardi, all your songs are charting.’

“[With] everybody saying I’m not this or that,” she continued, “sometimes I gotta see it and feel it for myself because it’s hard. Everybody always wants to say I made it because of this or made it because of that. I made it because I worked my ass off… Thank you very much, ASCAP. This is an honor for me.”
