Cardi B is not only a Grammy-nominated artist, she’s also an expert financial advisor. Her first single “Bodak Yellow” literally details her “money moves,” and her latest single, “Money Bag,” is all about looking like a rich, fancy woman.

There’s no denying Cardi is at the top of her game, and thankfully, she’s been gracious enough to share some of her personal finance advice along the way. Here, in honor of Equal Pay Day, are some of Cardi’s best tips.

Keep Your Investments Private

 

Save Your Money When You’re Young

I do look up to women who—like, I have a lot of friends and they’re 27, 28, 30, and still dancing. My friends are the ones that be like, ‘Yo, do you see how hard I gotta work and I’m 30 and I’m running out of time? B***h, you do not wanna be like me. That’s why you gotta work your a** off. Invest your money.’ When I started dancing, I should have saved my money. When I was your age, I should have saved my money.” —Cardi, when asked who she looks up to, in a 2016 Vibe interview

Have Financial Goals

“I’ll do something that brings me a check. The faster I make a lot of money, the faster I can have these kids I want.” —Cardi, in a 2017 profile on The Cut
