Cardi B Speaks On Using Sex To Drug, Rob Men
Earlier this year, the rapper defended herself after a video resurfaced of her saying she drugged and robbed men who wanted to have sex with her while she worked as a stripper before finding fame.
Cardi B faced criticism after the three-year-old Instagram live video recirculated on social media.
“Whether or not they were poor choices at the time, I did what I had to do to survive, I never claimed to be perfect or come from a perfect world.” she said
The original video was made as her career was starting to take off and was her response to someone who said she didn’t deserve success because she hadn’t put in any work.
