She went on to say that she has received a lot of hate for her former career, but has never regretted her decision.

“I’m glad for this chapter in my life. A lot of people always want to make fun of me, ‘Oh, you used to be a stripper!’ I don’t regret it, because I learned a lot. I feel like it matured me.” She said.

The 26-year-old rapper says that the other girls at the strip club always reminded her that there was only one motivation — the money.

“My biggest ambition was money. That’s what these women put in my head: nothing is important but the money.” She said.

Regardless of her past, Cardi B’s music is still topping the charts and she has had a huge year, including five Grammy nominations.

This woman definitely knows how to make the right money moves!
