Cardi B is making that money, honey!

On Thursday (July 11), the "Press" rapper revealed just how much she's pulling in from festival performances and one-off concert gigs after haters questioned why she hasn't gone on tour yet. (Let's just say, the money speaks for itself.)

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Cardi shared a breakdown of how much money she's making this Summer — it's no less than $300K per show — and explained why it just doesn't make sense financially for her to go on tour right now. "I find it so funny that people that ARE NOT FANS have the biggest concerns on why haven’t I done a tour. Welp because here you go, let me break it down for you," she captioned a spreadsheet of the guaranteed fee she will get from each performance.

"Let’s say if I go on tour and I do 600K a night right… sounds good but let’s get in the touring business shall we? Stage production gotta be massive since the fans pay massive so just on stage and production I will have to put about 450K maybe more a night since you know Bardigang deserve everything," she explained. "Don’t forget, outfit, makeup, hair, I’ll be left with like 150k a night."

"Now why would I do that now when I can go on tour on my second album while I get festival and independent Cardi concerts. Money??? Mhhhhhmmmmmm," Cardi continued. "You see ya might think I’m dumb cause my attitude or the way I think but one thing bout Bardi I loveeeee money and I know how to make it …I hope I answer ya question …Thank you. Just stop it already." (OKURRRR!)
