The video showed the rapper, 26, discussing her years working at strip bars.
She said: “I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f*** me?
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n***as up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do.”
After the video resurfaced, Cardi told her 42million Insta followers: “So I’m seeing on social media that a live I did 3 years ago has popped back up.

“I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.
“I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options.
“Whether or not they were poor choices at the time I did what I had to do to survive.
“I was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not.”

She added she was dating the men and they were “conscious willing and aware”.
She said: “I have a past that i can’t change we all do.”
Some of her fans have reacted to her comments.
One wrote on Twitter: I’m tired of Cardi b using this “I didn’t know any better” and “the life I came from” excuse as a way to avoid taking accountability for shit she does. First it’s homophobia, now its drugging and robbing men.

Cardi – real name Belcalis Almanzar – has spoken before of her tough upbringing around gangs in New York’s Bronx.
Aged 19, she was working as a dancer in a strip club to pay for college and escape an abusive boyfriend, and by the time she was 21 she’d saved £15,000 for bum and boob ops.
Later she amassed a huge following on Instagram with videos dishing out sex tips, relationship advice and political analysis.
Time magazine named her one of the most influential people in the world last year, and in February she made history as the first solo woman to win best rap album at the Grammys.
