Cardi B Addresses Saying She Drugged & Robbed Men As A Stripper

The rapper/actress explains why she decided to cancel a book deal.

(AllHipHop News) Cardi B has received a lot of love since becoming an A-list celebrity. However, there was a moment earlier this year that put the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker in the crosshairs of many naysayers.

Old footage of Cardi talking about how she used to take advantage of men during her time working in a strip club resurfaced online. In the social media video, the former exotic dancer said, “Oh yeah, you wanna f*ck me. ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go to this hotel.’ And I drugged n*ggas up and I robbed them.”

The Hustlers star addressed the backlash from those comments while appearing on the expediTIously podcast with Tip “T.I.” Harris. Cardi admitted the ordeal surrounding the “drugged and robbed” controversy is part of the reason why she turned down the chance to write a memoir.

“It was a book about myself, but I don’t think people are ready to hear…. people are just not ready to hear the lifestyle I lived and the things that I’ve done,” said the woman born Belcalis Almánzar. “To this day, people still haunt me about things I said about myself in my past, and I just rather keep it nice and clean. The past, I’m just gonna let it be because it will haunt me.”

The Bronx-raised rhymer added, “I never put nothing in a guy’s drink. N*ggas be getting twisted in the club. So if you wanna chill with me after the club, I’m not wasting time on your c###. I’m just wasting time on your clock. And you’re just chilling or go to sleep, then you’re wasting my time, so then I’m just gonna go through your pockets and I’m gonna leave… People actually call me a rapist because of that. They try to compare that to the sh*t that Bill Cosby be doing.”
