Cardi B received a lot of backlash after a three-year-old Instagram Live video she did where she confessed she drugged and robbed men while she was a stripper resurfaced. Fellow rapper Rick Ross came to her defense and now her husband Offset is sticking up for Bardi.
The Migos rep vented on Twitter and said his wife gives hope to other women who have rap dreams that they hope will save them from the nightclub lifestyle.
“Not talking bout prior female artist talking bout the female artist that come from my wife background. Every bartender, stripper with the dream of getting out the club it’s nun wrong with that but my wife help guide ur life to try to rap,” the father of four said.
Offset later deleted some of his initial tweets but made it clear that he feels his wife is an inspiration for the femcees who will come after her.
“The same ones hate are motivated by the wife she did the unbelievable,” he tweeted.
Cardi expressed remorse for her past actions and hoped that the Bardi Gang would forgive her for her past sins.
“There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs and robbing,” she wrote on Instagram. “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 a responsibility not to glorify it.”
