"You know what's so crazy? I told the magazine owner, and he just looked at me like, 'So? And?'" the rapper recalls.
Cardi B is detailing an uncomfortable and disturbing experience she had at the hands of a photographer and an apathetic magazine publisher.
Though she never states the name of the magazine or the men involved, the 26-year-old rapper says she "will never forget" the incident.
"I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine, and the photographer, he was trying to get close to me. Like, 'Yeah, you want to get in this magazine?' Then he pulled his dick out," she told WEtv's Angie Martinez in a preview of Thursday's episode of "Untold Stories of Hip Hop." "I was so f--king mad, and I was just like, 'This is crazy.'"
Martinez, visibly disturbed, asked the performer how she handled the situation.
"I was like, 'You're f--kin' buggin'. You know what? I'm out. I'm out,'" Cardi recalled. "And you know what's so crazy? I told the magazine owner, and he just looked at me like, 'So? And?'"
"Wow," Angie said, as Cardi continued, "When I see the Me Too movement, there's girls from the hood I know that went through the same type of treatment. Like, n---as make you f--king feel like you got to do a certain type of thing for the most bullshit shit."
"It happens every day," Martinez noted. A downtrodden Cardi agreed. "It happens, really, every day."
When Angie asked her typically charismatic guest if she still experienced that type of treatment, she quickly shot back, "Ohhh, hell no! I'll put you on blast on my Instagram! I hope a n---a would! I'll f--king violate!"
While this is the first time Cardi's been specific about her experience with unwanted sexual advances, she alluded to it last year during an interview with Cosmopolitan.
"A lot of [music] video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a f--k," she told the mag. "When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, 'You want to be on the cover of this magazine?' Then they pull their dicks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, 'So what? You're a ho. It don't matter.'"
According to WEtv, Cardi B went on to tell Martinez about her years working as a stripper and the first time she ever had sex with her Migos husband, Offset. She also discussed her decision to have baby Kulture, despite the discouragement of several members of her team.
The performer said she felt the pregnancy was meant to be because she always wanted a baby girl. "A girl?" she recalled thinking. "That means that God wants me to have a baby because I always wanted a girl."
