An old, troubling Instagram post from rapper Cardi B resurfaced over the last couple of days. In the NSFW video, Cardi B says she used to drug and rob men after stripping for them.
“I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f–k me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n—–s up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do.”
People were horrified when the video resurfaced, comparing her to R. Kelly.
Cardi B has responded, saying she wasn’t proud of her past but at the time, she did what was necessary to survive.
She also said the men in the clip she was talking about were boyfriends, not random strangers.
“The men I spoke about in my life were men that I dated that I was involved with men that were conscious willing and aware,” she said. “I have a past that I can’t change we all do.”
“All I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future,” she added.
