Mariah Carey was interviewing Cardi B when the subject of racial discrimination came up, and both parties aired their complaints.

Both artists felt that the industry has slighted them, and that their "non people of color" counterparts do better than they do, unfairly.

According to the interview, which was published by Interview Magazine, Carey asked Cardi the following:

"I have been involved in endorsement deals, and then I found out that certain white people got more money for their deals from the same company. I do my research. I know how much money I made that company"

"My fans buy my s***. So it’s like, ‘When you’re not paying me what you’re paying these other people, why is that?’ It’s kind of insulting."

"And then when it comes to fashion, hip-hop is a big influence. And yet, Black artists have the hardest time getting pulls from designers and the hardest time getting seats at their fashion shows, and barely get endorsed by big fashion brands that we literally make trend."

Carey replied, "I’m just asking because I feel the same way."

"And I have it a different way because people don’t know how to categorize me sometimes, and that sucks. But I think people should listen to the words you say, because you’re saying it from firsthand experience. You’ve gotten less than other artists who are not artists of color, and yet your influence has been way broader."

Cardi's net worth is estimated at around $24 million at the time, and Carey's at a respectable $260 million.
