In case y’all thought Denzel wasn’t abreast to the hip hop world, you thought wrong. Washington is currently doing press rounds, promoting his latest project, “The Iceman Cometh,” a highly anticipated Broadway revival. While Denzel was mingling with various reporters and flashing his legendary smile, a journalist asked him a question that he wasn’t expecting. Instead of asking Denzel about his career or various roles, he was asked if he was a fan of Cardi B. To the surprise of many, Denzel started spittin’ lyrics from Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow.”

“What he want. he buy me Yves Saint Laurent. And a new whip,” [Denzel] recited, while being interviewed by The Root during a press run for Broadway’s ‘The Iceman Cometh.’ “You thought I didn’t know. I dip, you dip, we dip,” he continued.

What’s also dope about the clip, is that the 63 year-old legend was visibly proud for being able to let these youngins out here know that he keeps his ears to the streets too. Not only did Denzel spit some of his favorite Cardi B lines, he also gave her some solid advice:

“Stay true to herself. Don’t believe the hype. Keep it real, for real,” Washington said.

Cardi B. caught wind of Denzel reciting her lyrics and she shared the clip to her Instagram page. Humbled by Denzel being a fan, Cardi B. said she’s taken the advice and is staying true to herself. Check out Denzel’s interview clip below:

Denzel Washington isn’t the only big named star that’s a Cardi B fan, apparently Taraj P. Henson is as well. While promoting her newest film, “Acrimony,” the “Proud Mary” star was asked about her love for Cardi B. Henson made it known that she was a fan when she once posted a photo of Cardi with the following caption:

“SHINE BABY SHINE!!!! Was following you when you had 70K followers Proud of you!!! Keep puttin in that WERK!”

During an interview with ‘Clevver News’ on Monday, April 2nd, the “Empire” star was asked to do her best impression of Cardi B and she was more than ready. Using Cardi’s signature laugh, along with her tongue out pose, Henson got into character and said: “Gimme that shmoney” and a Cardi B-famous saying, “Okurrrr!”

Abiding by Denzel’s infinite wisdom, Cardi B continues to keep it real and be herself.
