Multiple award-winning rapper, Cardi B, has advised young girls against smoking cigarettes and weed, saying no need to impress anybody.
The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, took to her Instagram page on Sunday night to share photos of herself at 15, trying to impress the seniors at her high school.
She also shared a message telling young girls not to smoke cigarettes because “you’ll see how ‘dumb’ you are when you grow up”, reports Daily Mail.
“15 year old Cardi …Dear little girls don’t smoke cigarettes or weed trying to look cool for the seniors cause you really gonna grow up and see how dumb you look doing it,” the Bodak Yellow rapper wrote.
“Seriously tho what was I thinking? Anyways naaa my mustache was too much,” she joked.
One of the photos showed the teenage Cardi lighting up a cigarette while holding a bag.
She also shared photos from her days as a stripper, before she launched her rap career.
“THIS SOUND LIKE CARDI WITH THE BRAIDS …bro I should strip on the weekends cause my body was killa when I used to hit them poles,” she joked.
Cardi started stripping at just 19 years of age, before her music career took off.
She became the first female artist to win Best Rap Album as a solo artist and just the third female rapper ever to be nominated for Album of the Year after Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliott.
