Cardi B is currently under indictment in New York, and facing up to 14 years in prison if convicted. But yesterday, she made light of her predicament - by chanting "I Ain't Going To Jail" at her concert.

It popped off yesterday in Los Angeles, when Cardi was performing in front of a capacity audience. Cardi was talking to fans, and all of a sudden - she brought up her recent court case.

NY prosecutors charged Cardi with 14 separate crimes, after she and her goons allegedly assaulted two strippers inside a NY Gentleman's club. One of the girls was allegedly sleeping with Cardi's husband, rapper Offset. 

The grand jury returned its indictment after Cardi B rejected a plea deal back in April. Court records indicate that Cardi B is due in court on Tuesday, June 25 for arraignment. Pitchfork has reached out to representatives and attorneys for Cardi B.

The alleged incident involves two bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York who claim that Cardi B ordered her associates to attack them with bottles and chairs, according to TMZ. In an October statement to The Associated Press, Cardi’s attorney Jeff Kern said that he is “aware of no evidence” that Cardi “caused anybody any harm.”

Here's video of Cardi chanting in front of 10,000 fans:

Cardi B is one of the greatest female rappers in history. She's won a Grammy Award, seven Billboard Music Awards—the most of any female rapper, nine BET Hip Hop Awards—the most of any female rapper, three American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, and two Guinness World Records.
