Cardi B is blitzing through a media tour and is giving nuggets of Cardisms along the way.
The “Invasion of Privacy” rapper, whose debut album has already gone gold, stopped by The Breakfast Club and finally opened up about her pregnancy. Cardi revealed that her new predicament was not planned and the she “kinda, sorta” thought about possibly having an abortion. That is, until she realized she’s a grown woman and is “prepared” for this. The former Love & Hip Hop star also talked about getting Lauryn Hill’s approval for “Be Careful”, her recent lack of privacy (hint the album name) and how she was way happier when she was a stripper. Check out the interview below.
But Cardi didn’t just talk to The Breakfast Club; she also sat-down with GQ and divulged info about her Blood gang connection and how her butt shots could have cost her, her life.
On her Blood gang affiliation:
“Here’s the thing,” begins Cardi. “I never really wanted to talk about that, because I always wanted a music deal. I always want to keep my endorsements. When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of”—agonizing, cliff-diver pause—”Bloods. I used to pop off with my homies. And they’d say, ‘Yo, you really get it poppin’. You should come home. You should turn Blood.’ And I did.” But that was then, this is now, “After you’re in your 20s, why would you join a gang? That’s something that you do when you’re young. I don’t even got to keep up communications. I keep communication because I’m used to it.”
On her $800 basement butt injections:
“They don’t numb your ass with anything,” she says. “It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days.” But, even though it was painful, Cardi had planned to go back for more. “But by the time I was gonna go get it, the lady got locked up ’cause she’s supposedly killed somebody … Well, somebody died on her table.”
