There's never a dull moment on Cardi B's social media. 

The Grammy-winning rapper took her beloved honesty to her Instagram on Sunday with a snap of herself sporting colorful braids, vibrant pink pants, black and white sneakers and a sheer, long-sleeved turtleneck crop top exposing most of her chest. 

"I can't swim so I bought these titties so I can float," the star bluntly captioned the photo. 

The photo has amassed more than 2 million likes since she posted and caught the eye of some fellow stars, including DJ Diplo

"Your a genius," he commented as others pointed out his grammatical error. 

Meanwhile, sister Hennessy Carolina left some heart-eye emojis for her famous sibling. The star, who welcomed daughter Kulture last summer, previously explained she wanted plastic surgery for a breast "renovation" after the birth, noting she had previously gotten them "done" at 19. "Kulture did me bad," she wrote on Instagram back in September 2018. In May, the star confirmed to ET she had gotten them "redone."

And through it all, we can always count on Cardi to keep it real.
