Recently a video surfaced on the Instagram where Cardi B is seen admitting to the fact that she used to lure men to hotel rooms and used to drug and rob them while she was a stripper in New York.
The haters did not lose a single second to spread the video and create havoc. Some called for Cardi to be ‘canceled’, some said she did not deserve her success, while some others said she should go to jail for this.
Cardi B later took to Instagram to contextualize and express regret for the claims she had made in a video that was made three years ago. The rapper wrote, ‘I’m a part of a hip-hop culture where you can talk about where you come from, talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.’
The Grammy-winning rapper further continued, ‘There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs and robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive. I never glorified the things I brought up in that life I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it.’ If you really check a rapper’s background you will find most all of them with a criminal background.
She says she is not proud of her past, but she does not deny all the things she had to do to make the ends meet. She wrote, ‘I was blessed to have been able to rise from that, but so many women have not. Whether or not they were poor choices at the time I did what I had to do to survive.’ While many rappers talk about their past or either glorify crimes, Cardi on the other side does not believe in doing so and never wants to glorify what is wrong.
She concluded her statement by saying, ‘I have a past that we can’t change we all do,’ she continued, ‘all I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future.’ Well, more power to you Cardi B.
The Bronx native is married to rapper Offset, with whom she shares 8-month-old daughter, Kulture.
