Nominations for the BET Awards were announced today and probably no one is more ecstatic than first-time nominee Cardi B, who celebrated by dancing for joy and yelling a few expletives.
Once rapper Belcalis Almanzar, better known as Cardi B, received the news that she was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, she couldn’t hold her excitement. In a video uploaded to social media, the “Love and Hip Hop” star can be seen dancing around in a yellow towel and black hair bonnet yelling “Oh my God! I can’t believe it!”

“Yeah suck my d–k,” said a clearly over zealous Cardi. “Suck my d—!”
Even social media was happy for the young rising rapper, praising the fact that she keeps it real and doesn’t forget where she came from (Bronx, NY) even in Hollywood.
“Cardi b has so much love b/c she is her authentic self 100% of the time. Congrats to your nomination! So proud of you,” wrote one Twitter user.
Others were just in love with her reaction and couldn’t wait to hear her acceptance speech should she win.
“cardi b screaming suck a dick upon learning that she’s been nominated for a bet award has given me all the strength I need today,” said another user.
Cardi B garnered attention off her Instagram videos, which eventually ended up landing her a recurring role on “Love and Hip Hop: New York.” She also had a guest role on “Being Mary Jane.” The rapper currently has two mix-tapes out: “Gangsta B—- Music” and Gangsta B—- Music Volume 2.”
