Cardi B is like any other musician who performs for an award, and the rapper recently shared a paycheck with a large sum of money.

Though the post has been deleted, fans were able to grab a screenshot of it.

The payslip

For an artist of Cardi B’s status, it should be no surprise how much it would cost to have her perform at events.

The prize is generally treated with confidence.

However, a recent encounter with an online troll compelled her to share.

On Twitter, one troll said Cardi B recently performed in “someone’s backyard” during Art Basel, Miami’s famous arts festival.

The rapper snapped back when she shared a photo of how much she was paid for a 35-minute set.

“I got payed [sic] 1 million dollars to perform at this elite bankers event private event for 400 people and only for 35 minutes,” she tweeted.

“Think about that when you type about this Grammy winner.”

Takeoff tribute

Cardi B’s Miami gigs come after her touching tribute to husband Offset’s former Migos bandmate and cousin Takeoff.

In early November, Takeoff was shot in Houston.

He was the youngest of the Grammy-nominated rap trio from suburban Atlanta, along with Quavo and Offset.

Takeoff died after someone opened fire on a Houston bowling alley the trio was visiting.

Cardi B posted on Instagram.

“Takeoff your untimely passing has brought a great deal of pain and sorrow to so many lives,” she wrote.

“The impact you had in this world was so considerable and we have struggled to grasp this tragedy.”

“I am heartbroken but I am grateful for all the precious memories we got to share while you were here with us.”

Shooter update

Houston police announced last week that they arrested Patrick Xavier Clark, 33, and charged him with murder related to Takeoff’s death.

A second man was also arrested earlier in the week, but he is not believed to have fired the weapon.
