Some of the subscribers said that Hermés Birkin bags are losing value due to the fact that they are worn by black rappers. Cardi B put the disaffected in their place.
Hermés Birkin handbags, which range in price from $ 12,000 to $ 200,000, are an attribute of wealth and luxury and have many admirers among famous women. However, some people don’t like the fact that there are many “black rappers” among the brand’s fans. One Twitter user brought up this topic and noted that “black rappers” devalue these accessories, make them “readily available” and “non-exclusive.”
Cardi B was unable to ignore the discussion. She recorded a video in which she commented on this topic:
I saw this discussion. It touched me and other women rappers there. It’s funny. First, I can really afford these bags. I just bought four from Hermés today. And secondly, you don’t say that about white famous women! And by the way, we do not devalue things – on the contrary, we raise their value! When brands are mentioned in the hip-hop environment, it makes brands cooler,

She recalled that in her track Bodak Yellow she mentioned the brand of Christian Louboutin, and “after that its sales grew by 1000 percent, you can google it.” The same thing, Cardi said, was with Balenciaga when she mentioned the brand’s name in the text.
So we are not downgrading, but increasing the value of these bags!
– summed up the star.
