Cardi B Explains Why She Got Basement Butt Injections, Gang Affiliation & Not Having Control Of Her Life In New Interview
There is nothing more refreshing than Cardi B’s ability to be open and honest about her life.

Cardi B, who recently announced she is expecting her first child, did a candid interview with GQ Magazine, where she opened up about getting booty injections illegally and her gang affiliation.

Cardi, who was a stripper when she was younger, admitted she got injections in her derriere at the age of 21-years-old. 

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper said, "When I was 21, I did not have enough meat on my body — if I was to get lipo, I wouldn't have fat for my [expletive]."

She admits she wanted to have a bigger booty for her career and also because her previous boyfriend cheated on her with a woman with a big derriere.

Thinking of a Master plan ,I’m lying !CHICK FIL A on my mind 😩😂
Cardi revealed she received butt injections in a basement apartment in Queens for $800, which she admits were extremely painful.

"They don't numb your [expletive] with anything," she explained. "It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days."

The butt filler injections were not only illegal, but the size couldn't really be determined beforehand. However, Cardi was lucky and was happy with the results.

She planned to go back for more, but discovered the woman giving the injections was in jail after a patient died.

Cardi said, "But by the time I was gonna go get it, the lady got locked up 'cause she's supposedly killed somebody. Well, somebody died on her table."

Cardi also discussed being affiliated with the Bloods (or Brims). There have been rumors and hints from the rapper herself, but she admits she was concerned the gang affiliation could hurt her career.

"Here's the thing," Cardi explained. "I never really wanted to talk about that, because I always wanted a music deal. I always want to keep my endorsements. When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of Bloods. I used to pop off with my homies. And they'd say, 'Yo, you really get it poppin'. You should come home. You should turn Blood.' And I did. Yes, I did. And something that—it's not like, oh, you leave. You don't leave."

Cardi adds that she started stripping and lost interest in the gang life, finding herself more focused on making money.

I want all your shmoneish🤑
She said, "One thing I could say, you could ask any gang member: Being in a gang don't make you not one dollar. And I know for a fact every gang member, he asking himself, 'Why did I turn this?' Sometimes it's almost like a fraternity, a sorority. Sometimes it's like that. And sometimes I see people that's in the same gang kill each other. So sometimes there is no loyalty. Sometimes you gotta do certain things to get higher, to get higher and higher. You're doing all of that and you not making money off of it. That's why I don't talk about it much."


Cardi B continued, "Because I wouldn't want a young person, a young girl, to think it's okay to join it. You could talk to somebody that is considered Big Homie and they will tell you: 'Don't join a gang.' The person that I'm under, she would tell you, 'Don't join a gang.' It's not about violence. It's just like — it doesn't make your money. It doesn't make your money. I rep it, because I been repping it for such a long time."

Cardi , who was popular for her Instagram comedy and reality TV show ”Love and Hip-Hop”, spoke about the sudden success after her debut single “Bodak Yellow” went No. 1 in the country and becoming one of the first women to have five Top 10 singles simultaneously on the Billboard charts.

“I feel like I’m not in control of my life,” she confessed. For a single day off, “I would have to call so many people. I would have to call the label, my management, my publicist. It’s like a partnership. I’m the artist, but I don’t feel like I have a higher position than anybody that’s working for me. If I don’t want to work tomorrow, I cannot just stop working, because then, how’s other people gonna feed their family? It is a lot of pressure.”
