Cardi B makes history.

The Bronx-bred MC became the first solo female rapper to win Best Rap Album at Sunday’s Grammys. Her debut album Invasion of Privacy beat out the competition, which included Pusha-T’s Daytona, Mac Miller’s Swimming, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, and Travis Scott’s Astroworld.
An emotional Cardi took the stage to accept the honor alongside her husband Offset. “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed,” she joked.
The last time a female took home the award for Best Rap Album was in 1997, when Lauryn Hill won as part of The Fugees for the group’s album The Score.
