The superstar definitely has some explaining to do, after an old video has emerged where Cardi B apparently reveals how she made her ends meet, before she became world famous.
In the videoclip that has been circulating in social media over the past few days, Cardi B (26), or Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, which is her real name, tells how she was baptizing and stealing money from men as a stripper.
Under the #SurvivingCardiB –tag, with a clear reference to the the much mentioned “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary, who addresses the abuse suspicion towards the artist “R. Kelly”, she gets the slick layer on Twitter and Instagram.
Tuesday night Cardi B finally broke the silence, posting the following statement to her more than 40 million followers on Instagram:
According to the Bronx rapper, the time referred to in the now three-year-old Instagram video, she did everything to survive. She did not want to glorify what she had done, and emphasized that the men who became her victims were ready, willing and conscious when it happened.
Earlier this year, 26-year-old Cardi B became the first female solo artist, through the history of the Grammy award, to receive the award for “best rap album”. This award has previously been awarded to artists such as Eminem, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.
