It takes a lot to overshadow Tiger Woods, but Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B did just that on Friday by announcing during an Instagram Live stream that she planned to honor the 15-time major champion in a special way.
During the stream, Cardi explained that her sophomore album would be named in honor of Woods who returned from one of the most dramatic falls from grace in modern history to reach the top of the sporting world this past April at the Masters.
“Everything that I’m working on right now is straight to my album. Straight to my album,” she said. “And I think I’m gonna name my album Tiger Woods. I think I’m going to name my album Tiger Woods because remember when everybody was talking s**t on Tiger Woods? Like ‘Oh blah blah, blah blah this, blah blah that,’ and then he f***ing came and won that green jacket? That’s what I’m going to name name my album.”

This isn’t Woods’ first indoctrination into the hip-hop industry; he’s been name-dropped in songs by everyone from Jay-Z and Eminem to Kanye West and Nelly.

The new Cardi B album is just further proof that regardless who is at the top of the world rankings, or who is winning the most tournaments, Tiger Woods is still one of the few golfers of the modern era who can transcend sports and thrive in popular culture.
