A three-year-old Instagram Live video by rapper Cardi B has come back to haunt her in the worst possible way.
In a video that began with the good advice to her followers to ‘go to a good school’ and pay for their dreams themselves, Cardi B attempts to clap back at critics who say that she didn’t ‘deserve’ where she is now because she ‘didn’t put in the work’. In her attempt, she trips and hits herself.
Included in her list of things that she did to ‘survive’ was that she ‘had to strip’ and drug and rob men that wanted to sleep with her.
CARDI B: I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f–k 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. Nothing was f–king handed to me, my N—-r, NOTHING!
Umm… ‘nothing was handed to me’ isn’t exactly compatible with ‘I drugged and robbed men’ — unless she means that she took it by force.
EXTREME LANGUAGE WARNING

Welp, I don’t think anyone is going to forget what she ‘had to do’ again.
She didn’t even try to get a ‘Sugar Daddy’ — an older man willing to pay her money for her, er, companionship. It’s a trend that’s on the rise with college students attempting to avoid student loan debt.
The blowback on social media was swift and fierce.
The hashtag #SurvivingCardiB was being used to question these particular life choices by the rapper. The reference is to the Lifetime documentary ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ which examines stories of alleged sexual abuse that were committed by the R&B singer.

"I made decisions to survive"..Bitch you could have been working in KFC for survival. if you wanna strip that's your choice. But to justify DRUGGING people and then ROBBING them cuz you wanted to have a fab life is nothing but basic bitch mindset.#SurvivingCardiB pic.twitter.com/Njr57nlFFw

Imagine a male celebrity admitting he use to drug and rob females after offering sex? His career would over quicker than me in bed. #SurvivingCardiB this world is backwards.

How is she not getting more coverage. SHE DRUGGED, RAPED, AND ROBBED MEN!!!!!! NO MATTER WHATS BETWEEN YOUR LEGS THIS IS WRONG. #SurvivingCardiB
— Stayclassy (@staycllassy) March 27, 2019
Y’all really excusing Cardi B for DRUGGING and ROBBING ppl talking about “its street shit” that’s why ppl who do “street shit” go to fucking prison. The bitch is trash if that would’ve been a male who said what she said y’all wouldve canceled him on spot. #SurvivingCardiB

Fuck Cardi B she’s cancelled. Drugging someone is endangering their lives. She said that she had to drug and rob men to survive. Like the rest of us don’t just work for a living? #SurvivingCardiB
— Kelly (@HumanitarianKel) March 27, 2019
I'm sorry, but her excuse to do what she did is no excuse. She only had to provide for herself, get a job or two jobs. Cardi wanted easy money it wasn't about survival shit, her apology is ????️. She canceled in my book. #SurvivingCardiB

Feminist hold woman accountable. We ARE equal and should be treated as such. When we take that away we are part of the oppression #SurvivingCardiB

That’s right, Stephanie!
@iamcardib HOW ARE YOU NOT IN JAIL?????? You drugged and robbed people…and your musical talents are at a 5th grade talent show level. Robbing people??? Just GO AWAY….You’ve had your well milked 5 seconds of fame! #SurvivingCardiB

Cardi b thought her plead to “survival” would earn her street cred or sympathy, but it backfired. Stop using “Hip Hop” and “The Hood” to justify your poor decisions. Own your shit! Furthermore, these men did not consent to being date raped #SurvivingCardiB pic.twitter.com/kUXmxHtSay

At first, Cardi was defiant on social media:
When they try to cancel me on Twitter and instagram ???????????????????????????????????? pic.twitter.com/a19gI006Xk
— iamcardib (@iamcardib) March 24, 2019
She then said that she was going to lay low for a while:
Okay I’m off Twitter for a few days ????Have fun.
— iamcardib (@iamcardib) March 24, 2019
But she just couldn’t stay away. Maybe she’s one of those people that believe ‘there’s no such thing as bad press’.
IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE,IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE ❤️ ????and I love it ????????????

She was wrong. One story from an alleged victim of Cardi B’s drugging and robbery came out and that changed everything.
It wasn’t just robbery if you believe this dude’s account of when he was a victim of Cardi B. Ak Ore Akim wrote:
I was in New York about five years ago training and my trainer suggested we go to a strip club. Normally, I would’ve turned him down but this time I decided to go. So, boom, we go to the strip club and I meet Cardi. I’m feeling her and convinced her to come back to the room with me to have a drink. I’d been drinking already so I had to piss, I slid into the bathroom and came back and finished off my drink. Last thing I remembered was she was twerking on me, music was blasting and that was it. The next morning, I saw a used condom on the floor and then I noticed all the cash I had which was about $850, my Louis Vuitton belt and my iPod touch was missing. I tried calling her several times but I soon realized she gave me a google voice number. I know she did it but I couldn’t prove it so I never went to file charges mainly because I did not want my fiancée at the time to know what had happened so I took my ‘L’. I can’t lie, it was certainly traumatizing and as a man, you never want to admit you were taken advantage of. No man wants to say #MeToo.
So imagine if it was a male rapper or anyway male in the public eye if he had said what Cardi say on her live everyone would want him in jail and the key threw away so why are y’all give this rapist the benefit of the doubt? #SurvivingCardiB pic.twitter.com/pVQBHDH4OF

It could also have been that some people made the connection to another famous person who was accused of drugging and raping people:

In another video, Cardi B makes some suggestions on how to ‘get back’ at a cheater:
— Underground Raps (@undergroundsrap) March 27, 2019
Others are pointing to Cardi’s seeming nemesis, Nicki Minaj:
Nicki: I am the female weezy
This shit is easy
Cardi: I am the female cosby
I drug rape and pull robberies #survivingcardib
— Josh j (@Joshbeenreal) March 26, 2019
When the only thing you had to steal was bread. “ I ain't never played the hoe position I ain't never have to strip to get the pole position” @NICKIMINAJ this is hard work. #SurvivingCardiB can never relate. #queen pic.twitter.com/6Pk8bIef3I

Cardi claims Drugging men is what she had to do to survive. But fact is she chose to be a Stripper/Prostitute. Meanwhile Nicki Minaj worked at Red Lobster & Sold Mixtapes out her. Then did club appearance to pay for studio time. So I see nothing but excuses! #SurvivingCardiB pic.twitter.com/zr22uQcFqa

Eventually, the rapper had to issue an apology.
CARDI B: So I’m seeing on social media that [an Instagram] live I did 3 years ago has popped back up. A live where I talked about things I had to do in my past right or wrong that I felt I needed to do to make a living. 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–t. Im (sic) apart (sic) of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are. There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs an (sic) robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive. I never glorified the things I brought up in that live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel responsibility not to glorify it. I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options. 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. The men I spoke about in my life were men that I dated that I was involved with men that were conscious willing and aware. I have a past that I can’t change we all do.
All I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future. pic.twitter.com/VlPJW20thN

Well, that’s not precisely the claim from an alleged victim.
She admitted to committing crimes and then she blamed it on street culture. That’s so incredibly insulting to those that rise above poverty through hard work, education, and saving while not resorting to crime.
Cardi B admitting to committing crime when she was a stripper in the Bronx should be held to the same account as anyone else who admits to committing drugging, raping, and robbing people.
Let’s leave the Cardi B commentary with this thought:
I’m done with my @iamcardib commentary. I’ve been saying this since she came out she represents the worst in popular culture is a horrible example for girls and women and should not be put up on a pedestal. #survivingCardiB

Amen, brother, amen.
There is indeed a better way to live.

In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
