Pardi Talks Getting His First Big Check, Co-Writing With Cardi & Kanye West


Before taking that stage tonight at the Powerhouse NYC pre-party alongside Dreamdoll, City Girls, Goldlink, and Flip Dinero, Pardison Fontaine stopped by the Angie Martinez show.

 You may or may not know Pardi from his work with Cardi B but if you don't you soon will because the Newburgh, NY native has been making noise in the game as of lately. According to Pardi Newburgh had the highest murder rate in NY, but it has since gotten a lot better joking that it's because of his music. 

While he raps now it wasn't always his passion as he used to play ball but it didn't work out for him saying that he realized the NBA only had 300 jobs and it was likely that he wasn't going to go pro. After dropping out of school he put hours and hours into learning how to record himself, honing his craft. 

Besides his own songs he also is known for co-writing every single one of Cardi B's songs on her hit album "Invasion of Privacy" (Except for "Bartier Cardi"). The friendship between the two began when she put up and IG video of herself with his song playing in the background. Sometime later he said that one night he went to sleep broke and the next morning woke up rich, however not revealing how rich. 

His new record with Cardi B "Backin It Up" is out now! 

Check out the full video above.
