  5. 8.5 |   The Quietus

    Finds a rapper in her prime, cleverly shaping her own stardom and - hopefully - carving out a path that continues to usher female MCs into the mainstream. Shamelessly sexual, caustically comic and with breathtaking flow, Cardi B stands proud as one of trap’s finest

  14. 7.5 |   Pretty Much Amazing
