Spotify’s RapCaviar Celebrates Cardi B & Other Icons at Brooklyn Museum

Cardi B at Brooklyn Museum

Last weekend, the Brooklyn Museum hosted a one-of-a-kind display featuring life-size sculptures of Cardi B, Jaden Smith, Juice WRLD, and Gunna.

The installation was sponsored by Spotify’s RapCaviar, and was designed to celebrate some of the most influential voices in hip-hop.

The forward thinking concept manifested as sleek silver statuettes with beautiful imagery designed to encompass each artist’s persona. There were also video screens that featured amazing behind the scene footage.

@therealLatinx braved the First Saturday crowds to catch a glimpse of these powerful representations of modern culture and take part of the shenanigans.

The museum made it a point to highlight its push for diversity programming by drawing attention to its, marquee, Frida Kahlo exhibit.

It also staged a live salsa band on the main floor, and mixed it up with a dance party and DJ set on the upper level giving bootyshaking patrons all the Selena cumbia they could handle.

There was even a Latinx drag show, featuring @jenn_drole and of course, drinks to round out the fiesta feels.

As the masses caught wind of the RapCaviar display, they hustled over the the 2nd floor, where a near procession took place.

We entered a dimly lit corridor, purposefully structured to evoke the mystique we place behind our icons, and found ourselves juxtaposed in a powerful statement:

Afro-Latinx and Black artists, and the communities of color who support them belong together in spaces that have traditionally excluded them.

It was certainly, a sight to behold.
