After Cardi B publicly made known her past crimes of robbing men while she was a stripper, she has now come back to say that she currently looks to become better for the sake of her future and her family.
“All I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future,” the rapper posted on her Instagram.
The 26-year-old mother of one said she did not put her past behavior into her music because “I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it. I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options.”
“I’m a part of 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,” she added.
The feisty “I Like It” singer, who shot to fame in the past two years, was responding in an Instagram post after a video surfaced that was recorded three years ago in which she spoke about going with men to a hotel with the expectation of sex, and drugging and robbing them.
The video sparked a backlash on social media under the hashtag #survivingcardib, with some users comparing her past actions with male singers who have been accused of sexual misconduct against women.
