Cardi B is facing backlash! The rapper has broken her silence on the comments on a newly resurfaced video in which she says she "drugged" and "robbed" men when she was a stripper.
The singer, 26, took to Instagram on Tuesday, March 26, to respond on those comments. She wrote in a lengthy statement,
So I’m seeing on social media that a live I did 3 years ago has popped back up. A live where I talked about things I had to do in my past right or wrong that I felt like I needed to do to make a living. I never claim to be perfect or come from a perfect world wit (SIC) a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s-—t.
Cardi then pointed out other rappers' "glorify murder, violence, drugs and robbing," however, said she has never promoted anything that she did in her past.
I never even put those things in my 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 was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not.
The I Like It rapper concluded the post, writing,
Whether or not they were poor choices at the time, I did what I had to do to survive. The men I spoke about in my live were men that I dated, that I was involved with. Men that were conscious, willing, and aware. I have a past that I can’t change. We all do.
