CLEARWATER, Fla. -- It was all about making money moves at this year’s WiLD Splash concert in downtown Clearwater.
The fiery and fierce Cardi B wooed the crowds in a hot pink pantsuit, kicking off her set with her verse from the 90s-inspired, “Finesse” by Bruno Mars.
The sartorial selection was a bit of a departure from her normal choice of revealing outfits, although it didn’t quite protect her from a brief nip-slip during her performance. It also didn’t protect her from whispers on if the loose-fitting suit was concealing a baby bump. Rumors of a child with her fiancé, Offset, have been churning on the interwebs for weeks.

Baby bump or not, Cardi powered through her short 10-minute show with the same energy and humor that helped bring her fame. Although a brief career means her songs are few, there didn’t seem to be a person in the crowd who couldn’t rap along to every word.
Despite her explosive popularity and clear path to superstardom, Cardi B’s catalog is just not yet developed enough to headline a show. That role was left for none other than trap-certified king Guwop, aka Gucci Mane.
Dripping in diamonds and dressed in head-to-toe -- you guessed it -- Gucci, he treated fans to hits ranging from “I Get the Bag” and “Both” to classics like “Freaky Gurl” and “Wasted."
Since exploding onto the music scene with his 2005 hit, “So Icy,” Gucci Mane helped popularize the trap music subgenre of rap for a new generation. Today, he’s considered one of its OGs and despite nearing 40, he can still move the crowds.
