Cardi B revealed that she used and robbed men when she was a stripper, and made people brag on social media.
The 26-year-old rapper has always been sincere and honest about her previous career as an exotic dancer, refused to shun her past and recalls it in her songs.
But her latest revelation has shocked many, which has led to the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB that has spread on social media in recent days.
The I Like It rapper made the revelation during an old Instagram life in which she struck those who had questioned her success. The video surfaced again this weekend (24 March).
Cardi B exclaimed those who said she did not deserve to be successful before talking about her previous career and crumbling when she remembered that nobody wanted to help her.
The 26-year-old then revealed what she had to do to survive, saying:
N s must have been forgotten, my n survived the shit I did with mother f * ckin. I had to leave. I had to go, ‘Oh yes, do you want to fake me? Yes yes, let’s go back to this hotel. “
And I drank n * s and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do. Nothing f * ckin ‘was given to me, my n *. Nothing!
Immediately after the video reappeared, this caused a huge backlash on social media, with people spreading the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB with reference to the Lifetime docu series Surviving R. Kelly.
Many called on the rapper to be ‘canceled’ and stated that she should be held responsible for her actions instead of being a role model for young women.
Others, however, defended Cardi by saying that her claims are only her reality and that many other rappers have exactly the same or a similar past.
Cardi B has since shared a long post on Instagram in response to the furore, saying that she “never claimed to be perfect,” and that she comes from “a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from” and “talk about wrong things you had to do to get to where you are ‘.
