Cardi B has responded to the backlash after an old Instagram live video resurfaced in which she admitted to drugging and robbing me in her past.

"I had to go strip, I had to go, 'Oh yeah, you want to fuck me? Yeah, let’s go back to this hotel. And I drugged n*ggas up and I robbed them. That's what I used to do," she said in the video.

Following the revelations, Cardi B hopped offline for a few days as #survivingcardib trended online, but she reappeared and explained her past actions.

"I never even put those things in my music because I'm not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it. I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options," she wrote. "I was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not. Whether or not they were poor choices at the time I did what I had to do to survive. The men I spoke about in my live were men that I dated that I was involve with men that were conscious willing and aware. I have a past that I can't change we all do," she wrote.
