When she was just 16, Cardi used to hang out with the Bloods, who are considered one of the most dangerous gangs in New York. She told GQ, "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."
She only stopped once she became a stripper at 19, noting that being in a gang didn't make her any money, but stripping certainly did. Guess the violence aspect wasn't that much of a factor!
Speaking of stripping, it turns out Cardi went above and beyond to make sure her body captivated everyone. She admitted to getting butt injections in a basement apartment in Queens for $800.
"They don't numb your a** with anything," she said. "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." If that wasn't wild enough, when she decided to go back for a touch up she couldn't because the woman who injected her was arrested, and you won't believe why!
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 talks for quite some time about history, and it turns out that she loves reading about the government and is "obsessed " with understanding how our system works. She is even able to list all the U.S. presidents in order.
