Cardi B, aka Belcalis Almánzar, is a Bronx native, rapper, and lyricist who is considered one of the most commercially successful women in her genre. Her rise to fame began with her viral presence on social media, which would eventually lead to her music career. Cardi B’s debut single, “Bodak Yellow,” made history by topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first female rapper to achieve this feat in nearly two decades. With her fearless approach to her craft, Cardi B continues to push boundaries and redefine the rap genre while remaining an influential figure in popular culture. So, you know her on social media, you know her music, but do you know where Miss Cardi B spends her time when she’s not working on her next hit? We’ve got all the deets on Cardi B’s house here!
Where Does Cardi B Live?
Well, that all depends on which house we’re talking about – Cardi currently owns two primary homes that we know of, with one being located in Atlanta, Georgia, and another in Tenafly, NJ.
In 2021, she announced via Instagram that she and Offset had purchased a home in New York, not far from her family. But there was a bit more to the story of Cardi’s “New York” home that may surprise you. More on Cardi B’s properties and Cardi B house photos below!
Cardi B House Tenafly NJ (Current)
Back in November 2021, Cardi B posted a photo of herself standing in front of a massive double staircase in what looked to be an estate undergoing renovations. In her post, Cardi B announced that she had just purchased the home in New York, not far from where her family resides.
There’s just one problem – it’s not actually in New York. In reality, the 13,000 square foot estate is located in Tenafly, New Jersey – a little less than an hour from NY.
The rapper purchased the home for $5.85 million and has reportedly invested around $1 million in renovations. Given the photos of the construction site at the time of her purchase, it’s not hard to see how much work went into making her dream home!
Current aerials of the property show us that Cardi has added a full tennis court, saltwater pool, cabana to the grounds. Unfortunately, there aren’t any interior photos at this time.
After some pretty extensive digging, however, we can say that the estate spans 2 acres and features 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms as well as a plethora of amenities.
Some noteworthy features include a movie theater, temperature-controlled wine cellar, gym, chef’s kitchen, a library, and a wet bar!
Cardi B House NJ (Status Unknown)
For a while Miss Bartier Cardi resided in the pretty little town of Edgewater, NJ. Now, we know what you’re thinking…
Cardi — why not just live in the city?
Well folks, for the same exact reason that anyone chooses to not live in the city — because it’s freaking expensive!
In an interview with The Fader, the rapper chick commented on how at the time she paid about half of what she would have paid for an apartment the same size in the city. So what was the monthly bill, you ask? About $3k. Not bad for some #comeup salary.
Now, I have no idea how she does it, but she keeps her homes on the DL. Not even we could dig up an address for this place. BUT, she did give an interview to Vibe where she revealed her “real” home – grandma’s apartment in Washington Heights, Manhattan.
Cardi B House Atlanta (Current)
Cardi B purchased this French chateau-inspired estate back in January 2020 for around $5.5 million, according to records. The mansion boasts an impressive 22,000 square feet of opulent interior living space and is situated on 5.84 acres of lush Georgian land.
Think the outside is fancy? Just wait until you see what’s inside!
This is only 1 of several formal living rooms – boasting gorgeous pillars, French doors that lead onto the patio, and a grand fireplace.
The kitchen features rich wood cabinetry and a gorgeous chandelier as well as a peninsula with a breakfast bar, a large island, a hidden fridge, and stainless steel appliances.
For slightly more opulent dining occasions, the estate’s formal dining space is sure to impress – featuring an entryway decked out in pillars and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the lush grounds.
A far more rustic space in the home is this all-wood office/study, offering built-ins and an elegant coffered ceiling.
Upstairs, you’ll find one seriously gorgeous master suite featuring tiled flooring, wood coffered ceiling, and French doors that lead to the balcony.
Two arched entrances in the space lead to a sitting room with a fireplace.
The master suite also plays host to an extensive walk-in closet with ample storage for clothing, shoes, and accessories.
Not far from the closet is the suite’s ensuite bathroom, which features a large glass shower, free-standing tub, and doors that lead to the grounds.
While this place is the epitome of timeless decadence, that doesn’t mean there aren’t more casual spaces in Cardi B’s Georgia palace – like this entertainment space!
This luxurious recreation room is a true haven of entertainment and relaxation. Spanning a generous expanse, it combines opulence with functionality seamlessly. It boasts a magnificent bar, a lounge area, and seamless access to the nearby patio!
Here’s one for those wine connoisseurs out there – a massive wine storage with enough space for even the largest collection of bottles!
Outside, the grandeur continues with this stunning patio overlooking the surrounding forest. Walking down the stone steps, you’ll find yourself standing near the home’s sprawling swimming pool and firepit area.
Cardi B still calls this gorgeous estate home and often posts selfies at the property on her social media pages.

What is Cardi B Net Worth?
According to the mecca of all celebrity net worth sites, aka celebritynetworth.com, Cardi B’s net worth is a whopping $80 million big ones as of 2023.
Now, to give you an idea of exactly how quickly she rose in ranks once she hit it big — her net worth was estimated at just $400k back in 2016 — pre-”Bodak Yellow” days.
Now, $400k is an achievement for pretty much anyone in life let alone a 26-year-old chick hailing from the Bronx. So when I say just $400k — what I really mean is I would throw my chum-covered 30-year-old body into shark-infested waters just to be in her shoes two years ago.
Now, this heffa went and more than doubled that number by February 2017 to $1.5 million and fast forward to 2023 — here we are at $80 million.
Well dayum – she’s makin’ us all look bad. Okurrr!
What is Cardi B’s Backstory?
This 26-year-old mega rap star was born Belcalis Almanzar in 1992 in the Bronx, NY to a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother.
So where did the catchy lil’ moniker “Cardi B” come from?
Well, she has a sister by the name of Hennessy Carolina, and as a result, the rapper found a lot of their friends calling her Bacardi, to which she switched to Cardi B once she began rapping.
By the time she was 16-years-old she was reppin Bloody gang but also focusing on musical theater in school.
Ironic — yes.
The artist recently opened up about how she was initially extremely hesitant to bring it up in interviews, mainly due to the fact that she was afraid she would lose her endorsement deals and because she would never “…want a young person, a young girl, to think it’s okay to join it.”
However, eventually, word started to get out about her gang affiliation — in part due to a handful of social media posts where she openly repped them — which led her to open up about it more honestly in the media.
In an interview with GQ she said, “When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of…Bloods. I used to pop off with my homies. And they’d say, ‘Yo, you really get it poppin’. You should come home. You should turn Blood.’ And I did. Yes, I did.”
The rapper continued on with: “You could talk to somebody that is considered Big Homie and they will tell you: ‘Don’t join a gang.’ The person that I’m under, she would tell you, ‘Don’t join a gang.’ It’s not about violence. It’s just like—it doesn’t make your money. It doesn’t make your money. I rep it, because I been repping it for such a long time.”
At 18 she started strippin’ aka “skrippin” — as I prefer to fondly call it — to make some cash after being kicked out of her house and to help her get out of an abusive relationship. This change in occupation led to her becoming #instafamous due to a combination of her interesting profession and #nofilter #bluntasballs attitude.
And if you’re wondering if skrippin’ paid the bills… well, honeychild…according to Bartier Cardi, she started off making around $200 or $300, but by the time she was three years into the gig she found herself getting a major foothold on financial stability.
“When I was 21 I had $20,000 saved up…When I was 22 I already had $35,000 saved – in singles.”
The lesson of the day: Skrippin’ pays the bills.
Needless to say when you’re posting a lot of twerk vids and in your face, unabashedly unapologetic commentary all over the Gram — people are going to start to take notice.
Millions in fact — her videos started going viral — and that’s around the time when VH1 came in the picture.
Her 2 seasons on “Love and Hip Hop” thrust her into the spotlight and even though she was loving every minute of it, she eventually quit the show to focus on her music career…and the rest is history y’all.
What is Cardi B Like In Her Average/Day-to-Day Life?
When she’s not busy being the first female rapper to reach the number one spot on the chart as a solo artist since Lauryn Hill in ‘98, getting proposed to in front of thousands of people onstage by her insanely huge rapper hubby, or raking in 10 nominations at the MTV Awards, Bartier Cardi is pretty much your normal, everyday twenty-something multi-millionaire celebrity.
Let’s face it — Cardi B pretty much has an open door policy when it comes to her life in comparison with other celebrities — and since we stalk her on the Gram, we think it’s safe to say we are the definitive source when it comes to anything and everything surrounding her day-to-day activities.
But to be pretty honest — other than a pair of new Lamborghinis, some free merch, an MTV Awards show, and a baby — she seems like she spends a lot of time in the house.
LAWD honeychild if that were mine I’d never leave either…
