Cardi is heading to the strip. Nope, not her previous gig, but the Las Vegas block where everything stays.


According to Las Vegas Now, Palms Casino Resort announced the “Money” rapper’s residency set to debut this spring.

Palms is kicking off its debut of a new dayclub and nightclub amphitheater called KAOS, set to open in April. Cardi’s appearance will be the primary promo for the new digs. The swanky club will feature shit like a rotating 360-degree DJ booth because Vegas is the most.

The Associated Press reports other acts slated to perform at the multimillion dollar addition are G-EAZY, Skrillex, Above and Beyond, and Kaskade. AP also confirmed select tickets are now available. However, exact start dates and duration are unknown at this time.

I know one damn thing—I’m ready. Monique is ready. We need a whole ass The Root fam field trip. Imagine the glorious fuckery to ensue when Cardi descends upon Sin City. Lights, camera...dat action.

The Root has reached out to Cardi B’s team for comment.

Update: 1/25/2019, 8:21 a.m. ET:

Cardi has spoken. The 26-year-old rapper confirmed her Las Vegas residency in a way only Belcalis would.


“So, yes, it’s true that Cardi got a residency in Las Vegas at the Palms, bitch!” Cardi exclaimed, before telling someone off-camera to pull up the window because “that bus mad loud.”


“A lot of motherfuckers in the comments talking ‘bout like ‘but, she only got one album, I thought you got to be a legend, why her?!’ bitch, fuck you mean ‘why me?’ because I bring bitches out!” she added with emphasis.

Word. Get money.
