Cardi B sparked outrage earlier this week when a three-year-old video of the Bronx rapper admitting to drugging and robbing men whom she lured to hotel rooms with promised sex resurfaced online. In light of the disturbing admission, a video she made in 2017 — wherein the former stripper suggests drugging cheating ex-boyfriends and tricking them into sleeping with male-to-female “trannies” — popped back up on social media.
“Yo, if a n**** cheat on me, I’mma be that guy. I’mma take him out. We gonna get drunk. I’mma get him all perked up and everything. We gonna have a good time, get him super twisted, then bring a bitch around,” said the rapper, according to Hornet.
“We gonna have a threesome, and when he wake up, he gonna be like, ‘What the f***?!?’ Yeah, because the b**** was a tranny. I’mma be like, ‘Yup, yeah, we had a threesome with a tranny. Yup, yup a tranny sucked your d***,'” she continued.
“You ain’t gotta f*** another n**** to get even, b****. There’s other ways to get even, ya know?” Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, concluded.
The rapper was criticized as transphobic back in January when the video first resurfaced. Addressing the charge, Cardi B said she didn’t see a problem with the word “tranny” because her transgender friends use it and she was never taught otherwise.
“Like, I don’t get it. What is the point of you like, trying to argue and not educate?” she asked. “Like, I keep getting called ‘transphobic’ because, like two years ago, I used the word ‘tranny.'”
“I didn’t know that was a word that you cannot use, especially because my trans friends use it,” added the rapper. “And as growing up, my parents never told me that that was a bad word. Y’know, there’s bad words that your parents teach you that you’re not supposed to say. Nobody taught us that. Nobody taught us that in our school … They never taught me that, so how am I supposed to know?”
As reported by The Daily Wire on Wednesday, the artist admitted that she used to drug and rob men whom she would lure to a hotel room with the promise of sex in a resurfaced Instagram Live video.
“I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f*** me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n****s up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do,” she says in controversial clip.
Cardi B put out a statement on Tuesday rationalizing her past behavior, which she said she has overcome.
“I never claim (sic) to be perfect or come from a perfect world wit (sic) a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s***,” the superstar said.
“I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options,” she rationalized. “I was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not. Whether or not they were poor choices at the time I did what I had to do to survive.”
