(AllHipHop News) Cardi B is planning to set the record straight about her unique life story in a memoir.
Cardi famously pulled herself out of poverty by starting out as a stripper in her native New York City, before leaving to pursue her rap dreams with a role on U.S. reality show "Love & Hip Hop: New York" in 2015, and conquering the charts with her breakout single "Bodak Yellow" in 2017.
She has continued to make waves in the music industry ever since, but Cardi is sick of critics trying to tear her down as a bad person.
"Everybody always trying to make excuse of me," Cardi complained. "Always everything, 'Cardi this, Cardi that, Cardi's a terrible person.'"
"Let me tell you something," she continued. "I'm a rapper. I'm a b##ch that came from the streets that came to the industry. I wasn't a Disney channel star. I wasn't a nun. I wasn't a saint. I never was a saint, OK? I'm a good-hearted person but I have done some f##ked up s##t."
The hip-hop star then shared her plans to revisit her past in her own words in the near future.
"Y'all don't have to worry about it, y'all don't gotta tell my story," she said. "You wanna know why y'all don't gotta tell my story? Because I'm gonna write a book about my life. I've been through a lot of s##t. I've been a b##ch that from young been in the streets. I got influenced by the streets."
It's not clear when Cardi hopes to put pen to paper.
