"I can't breath. Oh my goodness. The nerves are so bad! Maybe I need to start smoking weed," she said onstage, reports E!News.
Holding the trophy in her white-gloved hands, Cardi thanked Offset, calling him “you husband,” and their daughter, who was born seven months to the date.
Cardi’s debut Invasion of Privacy beat out albums by the late Mac Miller, Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T and Travis Scott.
She is just the fifth woman ever nominated in the category that was created in 1995.
Lauryn Hill was part of the Fugees when the group won in 1997 for The Score.
Cardi twerked on a piano during her performance of her single 'Money' earlier in the show.
