Cardi B just fulfilled her childhood dream of buying her mom a house of her own.
On Monday (November 19), the "Thru Your Phone" rapper took to Instagram to give a detailed walkthrough of the lavish residence she recently purchased for her mother in New York. According to TMZ, Cardi dropped over $600k for her mom's dream home — a two-story abode that features a built-in gym, and a snazzy basement with a bathroom, fireplace, and a fancy red-carpeted room.
“This is the happiest day of my life," the 26-year-old says in the clip, adding, "Last year, I was so thirsty to buy my momma a home, and I could only afford a house that cost six hundred thousand and you know, we live in New York, so cribs that look like that look like s**t."
The hard-working musician says she'd been biding her time and saving up her money to go all out on her mom's perfect pad for the perfect price, and given Cardi's emotional response, it was worth every penny. "I'm just happy that when my daughter visits her grandma's house she's going to come here with all of her friends," she says in the clip, referring to her baby girl, Kulture, whom she welcomed with her husband Offset in July.
Cardi hasn't disclosed the exact figure she paid for the property, but we hope she films her mommy's reaction once she hands her the keys to her new place!
