Hip-hop sensation, Cardi B — whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar — and her husband, Offset, of Atlanta rap trio, Migos, just dropped fat stacks for a swanky new home near Chastain Park, this past Christmas.
Born in Manhattan on October 11, 1992, and raised in The Bronx, New York City, Cardi B is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and actress. She became an Internet celebrity, after several of her posts and videos went viral on Vine and Instagram.
From 2015 to 2017, she appeared as a regular cast member on the VH1 reality television series, Love & Hip Hop: New York, to follow her music aspirations, and released two mixtapes, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, before signing with label, Atlantic Records, in early 2017.
Cardi B has since earned three Number One singles on the Billboard Hot 100; “Bodak Yellow” made her the second female rapper to top the chart with a solo output — following Lauryn Hill in 1998; “I Like It” made her the only female rapper to attain multiple Number One songs on the chart; and her Maroon 5 collaboration, “Girls Like You”, made her the sixth female artist to achieve three Number One singles on the chart, during the 2010s.
Her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy (2018), on which the former two songs are included, debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200, broke several streaming records and was certified triple platinum by the RIAA. Critically acclaimed, the album won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, making Cardi B the only woman to win the award, as a solo artist.
Recognized by Forbes as one of the most influential female rappers of all time, Cardi B is known for her aggressive flow and candid lyrics, which have received widespread media coverage.
She is the highest certified female rapper of all time on the RIAA’s Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking, also appearing among the 10 highest-certified female artists of all time.
Her accolades include a Grammy Award, seven Billboard Music Awards, five Guinness World Records, four American Music Awards and 11 BET Hip Hop Awards. In 2018, Time included her on its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Listed by Dorsey Alston Realtors for $5.79 million — it’s unclear what the couple actually paid for the place — the 22,000-square-foot, Sandy Springs mansion comes with just about everything one might need to shoot an extravagant music video.
Inside the circa-2006 colossus, at 795 Highcourt Road, just north of Buckhead, you’ll find five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four half-baths — and a gun range. Yes, a gun range, decked out with steel walls, according to TMZ.
The European-style construction lords over nearly six acres, replete with a pool, sprawling lawns, and a private garden. There’s also a four-car garage and, of course, an 1,800-bottle wine cellar.
The property had been listed for as much as $9.9 million in the Spring of 2017, and previously offered as a $35,000-per-month rental, listing records show.
