Cardi B says she’s writing a book about her life: “I’ve been through a lot of shit”

She also called out how people treat her compared to her male counterparts

Cardi B has told fans she plans to write a book about her life in her latest Instagram Live.

The rapper went on the live function of the social media platform on Sunday (March 24) to air her thoughts on people who tried to shame her for her background.

“Everybody always trying to make excuse of me,” she said. “Always everything, ‘Cardi this, Cardi that, Cardi’s a terrible person.’ Let me tell you something. I’m a rapper. I’m a bitch that came from the streets that came to the industry. I wasn’t a Disney channel star. I wasn’t a nun. I wasn’t a saint. I never was a saint, OK?”


She continued: “I’m a good-hearted person but I have done some fucked up shit. Y’all don’t have to worry about it, y’all don’t gotta tell my story. You wanna know why y’all don’t gotta tell my story? Because I’m gonna write a book about my life. I’ve been through a lot of shit. I’ve been a bitch that from young been in the streets. I got influenced by the streets.”

At the end of a fan’s recording of her broadcast, she could also be heard beginning to discuss the double standard of how male rappers with a similar background to hers were treated compared to her.

She continued the conversation on her Twitter page, writing: “I never claim to be a angel I always been a street bitch  Ya be glorifying this street rappers that talk and do that grimmey street shit but they can’t stand a street bitch!”

Last week (March 19), it was announced Cardi had landed her first film role. She will appear in the upcoming movie Hustlers, which sees the rapper, Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez and more tell the story of a group of strippers who scammed Wall Street workers.


The ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ rapper also confirmed her plans to trademark her catchphrase “Okurrr”. When people criticised her for the move, she responded, saying: “Bitch, white folks do it all the motherfucking time, so you gonna be mad at me cos I wanna get some motherfucking money?”
