Watch: Nardwuar Interviews Cardi B


During the Coachella festival in California this past weekend, Nardwuar caught up with Cardi B for an unsurprisingly weird interview.

The Bronx rapper, whose debut album Invasion of Privacy has broken records, was not fazed by Nardwuar’s personality. However, at one point, she declined to answer one of his questions, saying, “I’m going to have a child, so I can’t tell that story anymore.”

Released on April 6, Invasion of Privacy will debut at No. 1 on Billboard 200 albums chart on Tuesday, making her the fifth female rapper to top the chart. (She follows Nicki Minaj, Eve, Foxy Brown, and Lauryn Hill.) The project also had the biggest streaming week for a debut studio album, passing Lil Uzi Vert‘s Luv Is Rage 2.

In terms of support from DJs, Cardi currently has five tracks on DJcity’s Hot Box chart.

Legendary Canadian interviewer Nardwuar has dropped his first interview of 2017. This time, he caught up with outspoken Long Beach rapper, Vince Staples, who recently made a stop in Vancouver for his Life Aquatic Tour.

In classic Nardwuar style, Staples fielded a barrage of unusual yet hilarious questions. Topics covered include the time he nearly drowned as a kid, his frequent collaborator, No I.D., Snoop Dogg, and why the old style of gangbanging is out. He also touched on little-known facts about his life, including his love of Joy Division and Microsoft Encarta. As always, Nardwuar brought along some gifts.

Staples released his latest single, “BagBak,” in February. The track is slated to appear on his next album.
