Cardi B was working at an Amish deli in Tribeca during her teens. She got fired and became a dancer at a strip club across the street. Cardi B has said that becoming a stripper was positive for her life in many ways: “It really saved me from a lot of things. When I started stripping, I went back to school.” According to her, she became a stripper to escape poverty and domestic violence. That is, being in an abusive relationship at the time after being kicked out of her mother’s house, and that stripping was her only way to earn enough money to escape the situation and get an education. She attended Borough of Manhattan Community College before eventually dropping out. While stripping, she lied to her mother that, she was making money by babysitting.
