The rapper filmed the Instagram Live after people began to question her fame.

"For a b***h to say that I don't f***ing deserve it because I don't put in enough f***ing work..."

"I did it myself, the s**t that I did, to motherf***in' survive."

Cardi worked in gentlemen's clubs before she shot to fame.

"I had to go strip, I had to go, "Oh yeah, you want to f**k me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let's go back to this hotel.""

"I drugged n***as up, and I robbed them. That's what I used to do."

Social media reacts

The hashtag 'SurvivingCardiB' has been trending on Twitter since the video emerged.

It's a play on the R. Kelly documentary which accuses the rapper of sexually abusing women.

One user wrote, 'she represents the worst in popular culture is a horrible example for girls.'

Cardi releases statement

Following the backlash, Cardi released a statement on Instagram.

'So I'm seeing on social media that a live I did 3 years ago has popped back up.'

'I talked about things I had to do in my past right or wrong that I felt I needed to do to make a living.'

'I never claim to be perfect of come from a perfect world wit a perfect past.'

'There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs an robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive.'

'I never glorified the things I brought up in my music because I'm not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it.'

'I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options.'
