Cardi joins the main cast of Love & Hip Hop: New York in season six.

She has a casual fling with DJ Self, leading to a violent altercation with his girlfriend Yorma. Cardi and Self end up clashing later in the season, when he fails to take her music career seriously. Cardi's music career begins to take off in season seven after the release of her mixtapes, and her relationship with producer Swift Star turns sexual, leading to a heated confrontation between her and his girlfriend Asia.
