Cardi B: Bondage, Beatdowns and Big Ass Beats
Cardi B is one of the biggest artists on the planet and one of the most successful female hip hop artists of all time. She is accused of two counts of felony assault stemming from a fight in a Queens stripclub. Her public brawl with rival, Nicki Minaj is well documented as is her rise from the Bronx to superstardom via stripclubs and reality television. It’s the stuff of legend as is her big personality and unique form of feminism. Her trial looms but has Cardi B already committed and admitted to a crime that is possibly far worse?
