On an upcoming WE TV show called Untold Stories of Hip Hop, Latina radio personality Angie Martinez will sit down with hip-hop greats to probe them and get, as the name implies, never-before-heard stories on camera. Her first guest? Cardi B.
“I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer was trying to get close to me,” Cardi said. “He said ‘Yeah, you want to get into this magazine?’ Then he pulled his d*ck out. I was f*cking mad.”
The self-proclaimed “voice of hip-hop,” asked the Bronx-native how she handled the situation, to which she responded with a motioning of grabbing her things. Cardi B left but says she knows she’s not the only one who’s experienced an incident like this. Young, aspiring artists go through horrid cases of sexual harassment, disguised as a means for advancement, like this on a daily basis. “When I see the Me Too movement,” she said, “there’s girls from the hood… I know that they went through the same type of treatment [that] makes you feel like you gotta do a certain type of thing for the most bullsh*t sh*t.”
But this isn’t necessarily the first time Cardi told someone of the alleged incident. The Dominican-Trini-American rapper says she told the owner of the magazine at the time, who appeared completely unfazed in response.
It’s safe to assume the person faced no repercussions. Cardi B did not reveal the name of the magazine, its owner, nor the photographer in question.
The full interview will air September 26 at 10 p.m. on ET.
