It’s dope how Cardi B has inserted herself into New York Hip-Hop as one of its newest frontrunners. This week, she continues her momentum with a new visual for “Lick,” which features real-life boyfriend (?) and Migos member Offset. In the clip (directed by Azuree Lyman and Mazi O.), the two hit up a casino for what amounts to an Ocean’s Twelve-esque caper.
Enjoy the clip above; “Lick” can be found on Cardi’s latest release Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2. In related news, we’ve also included a social media video from the Bronx emcee, which sees her blasting critics (men) who judge her and music based on her stripper past…

A lot of y’all men, I be getting a lot of backlash and f***ed up backlash… And it be from y’all n***as. Especially because I used to be a stripper. Okay, I used to be a stripper. I needed a job that’s gonna feed me. Your f***ing favorite rapper used to f***ing work in places like McDonald’s, my n***a. At least everything I rap about is real life s***. I always been a static-y b***h. And I always been a b***h that got it poppin’. Your favorite rapper is not like that. Your favorite rapper is not a gangsta. Your favorite rapper raps about selling drugs that he never even touched before.
