“F-’em then I get some money!”

Or in this case, ‘Drug ’em then I get some money.’

New York born rapper Cardi B recently went on her IG live to address those stating how she didn’t deserve her fame. Cardi B replied back in the live rant by saying she had to resort to doing what she had to do. The ‘Money,’ emcee admits to bringing men who wanted to engage in sex with her to hotels. There she would drug them and rob them while they were unconscious to pay for her studio time and producers.

Many have taken to social media with memes comparing her to Bill Cosby. The famed comedian actor, best known on the hit TV show,  The Cosby Show. He was found guilty of drugging women and he has since been in jail. But why is there no jail time for Cardi B? Does the #metoo movement only protect women? Is this some sort of feminist agenda to emasculate African American men? Does it make a difference because now the roles have reversed? The victims are men and the perpetrator is now female?

Has the power of feminism gone too far? When did it ever become okay to meddle with the health and well-being of another human? In her defense, as she tears up, that no one was supporting her with the studio time she needed to make her records. So, she in fact  had to do what she had to do. As we all know she makes no efforts to hide her troubled past  as a stripper. But sometimes, celebrities must learn when to be quiet. This may have been a bad move for her. Let’s see if she’ll be able to recover from this travesty with the height of the #metoo movement as well as her career.

What are your thoughts? Were her actions justified or has she gone too far?

Cardi who is just 25 years old discusses how she is adjusting to fame, the pressure of following up to Bodak Yellow and not being another one hit wonder. 

The hip hop star also states how she’s feeling “muted” and can’t say what is on her mind as much due to the controversy it might bring. 

Rapping has always been something she’s always been into. It was either college or making money. Of course, Cardi chose stripping as a way to make herself some cash. During her strip club days, she garnered over 1 hundred thousand followers on Instagram. Releasing her 1st mixtape Gangsta Bitch, caught the attention of producers and she signed her record deal and starred on Love and Hip Hop New York, while the rest is history. 

When asked where she sees herself in 25 years she jokingly replied, “Cursin’ at my kids.”
