It’s not every day you get to work with your mom, but Cardi B seems to be finding a way to do so. Well, R&B/soul icon Patti LaBelle isn’t Cardi’s actual mother, but she definitely felt that way when she first saw the Bronx-native rise to stardom.
“I’ve been her mother in my mind for a long time because she’s just all that and a bag of chips. And I’m all that and a bag of chips,” Patti said in an interview for People.
While they may not be related by blood, they’re forever connected by food. The two entertainers are joining forces to blend Patti’s Good Life pies with Cardi’s Whipshots alcoholic whipped cream for a delicious, seasonal partnership.
