A #SurvingCardiB campaign has been sparked on social media after old videos of the rapper talking about how she used to drug, sexually abuse and rob men resurfaced online.
In one of the videos which triggered the campaign and backlash targeted at Cardi B, she is heard saying “Get him perced up … have a threesome, trick him into f*cking a tranny … Rob him while he’s sleep”.
Ever since the old videos resurfaced, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper, who was a previously known stripper, mounted a defence mechanism by taking to Instagram to admit to having done such things but added that it’s her past and she regrets it.
However, some critiques believe that though, the videos are old, Cardi B deserves to face some charges just as Bill Cosby faced and R. Kelly is facing for his past life of sexual encounter with some teens.
Notably, others argued that Cardi B’s confession of how she bait men with sex to rob them does not amount to any sexual crime that calls for her to face the law.
There is also a debate that there is a significant number of rappers like J Cole, Jay Z, and Nicki Minaj among others who equally admitted in some of their songs that they’ve done illegal things too, therefore, the pressure to get charges pressed against Cardi B is unfair.

During a ferocious Instagram Live session, Cardi spoke about her past after she felt she was being unfairly attacked by her critics. The artist has never claimed to be anything other than a “street bitch” but what she explained in the video caused some to believe there’s a massive double standard being exploited. In the heat of the moment, Cardi admitted to some pretty terrible behavior, telling fans that in order to fund her future, she used to flirt with her clients as a stripper, take them to a nearby hotel, drug them and then rob them. — Right now, the hashtag “#SurvivingCardiB” is trending worldwide with many of Cardi’s critics calling out the double standard here. If a man were in her position, admitting to robbing and drugging women, he would probably get arrested. However, in Cardi B’s situation, people do not believe that any charges will be made. — Swipe left to watch the confession and let us know what you think. — ? | The Team / #HypeOfHipHop (REPORT CRT. | 816)
