Cardi B has been announced as one of the 2019 inductees to Spotify’s RapCaviar Pantheon, Variety reported. With this, she has her own life-size sculpture. Since Spotify created the Pantheon, they honor the biggest breakthrough artists of the year who are making an undeniable impact on hip-hop music.
Juice WRLD, Jaden Smith, and Gunna have also been inducted and have their own sculpture to stare at.
“Through Pantheon, Spotify equates the art form of rap to the origins of art and civilization. Much like the ancient Greeks, rap has a pantheon of icons, names that are forever etched into culture, and songs that no one will ever forget.”
Cardi’s incredible statue has been posted to Spotify’s official Instagram page where you can see it from all different angles. If you want to see it in person, it will be on display to the public at the Brooklyn Museum in New York from April 3-7 along with the other three. B’s sculpture has made the most impact on Spotify’s account with over 74,000 likes on Instagram.
