Your favorite rap stars are living a lie. To put it plainly, their names aren't real. Cardi B, sadly, wasn't named Cardi B at birth. Nor was Lil' Uzi Vert named after his grandfather. We know this now through an excellent meme that's been making the rounds on Twitter, illuminating the truth behind every celebrity's artificially-enhanced moniker.
The meme provides a silly, elongated version of the celebrity's shorter, popularized name, as if it were a proper name. There's a specific emphasis on rappers, because the modern MC readily lends itself to the exercise.
