The rap world is congratulating Cardi

Everybody’s super geeked about Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” completing its long, slow ascent to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Whether it’s just via genuine love of Cardi B, an acknowledgement of the fact that female MCs almost never claim the spot, or a backlash against Taylor Swift and the larger industry she represents, a lot of people are excited about Cardi’s win. And that includes Cardi’s fellow rappers.

Just about everyone took a second to congratulate Cardi B on claiming the title of second female MC to reach the number one spot on a solo song. Cardi’s achievement is the first time that a solo femcee has reached the top of the chart in 19 years. Before her, Lauryn Hill’s 1998 hit “Doo Wop (That Thing)” was the only other song by a female artist to pull it off.

And her fellow rappers definitely noticed.
