Cardi B confesses she used to drug and rob men when she was a stripper, stands by it

Cardi B is defending her claims of drugging and robbing men while working as a stripper, claiming she did it "to survive".

According to Uproxx, the 'Bodak Yellow' rapper hit back at her critics who claimed she didn't deserve her fortune, prompting some shocking confessions about her past.

"The shit that I did to motherf**king survive... like I had to go strip," she said during an Instagram Live video.

"I had to go: 'oh yeah, you wanna f**k me? Yea, yea, yea, let's go to this hotel.'

"And I drugged n****rs up and I robbed them. That's what I used to do. Nothing was mother**king handed to me, nothing!"

The backlash from fans came swiftly, with some Twitter users using the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB, a reference to the documentary that detailed R&B singer R Kelly's long history of sexual abuse allegations.

"Cardi B admitted to drugging, raping and robbing men but people are defending her either because she's a woman, they're using childhood trauma as an excuse," one user wrote.


"I grew up poor and in the hood. I never robbed or raped or drugged a man. Stop using the hood as an excuse," another said.

The 26-year-old Grammy winner has since taken to Twitter herself, doubling down on her actions.

"I never claim to be an angel, I always been a street bitch," she wrote.

"Ya be glorifying this street rappers that talk and do that grimmey street shit but they can't stand a street bitch! [sic]"

"I'm still going to be here," she added.

Last week, it was announced Cardi B would be making her silver screen debut alongside Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming film Hustlers, where she plays a member of a group of strippers who team up to scam their Wall Street clients.
