Ashanti Shades Cardi B On Stage Saying “I’m Not a F***ing Stripper”

Ashanti seemed to have had a staged moment where she went off on an audience member who started throwing cash at her while she was giving a lapdance on stage. “I’m not a f***ing stripper” she told them while performing with Ja Rule in Honolulu. The irony to this is that the top female rapper leading all the Billboard charts is Cardi B, a former stripper, so she might want to go easy on the stripper shade.

Whether or not this was staged, it does appear to be an attempt to grasp a little relevance in a time that Ashanti’s existence has largely been forgotten… not to mention Ja Rule would appreciate some form of social media attention for his shows especially when him and his team collectively got sued for $100 million for their Fyre Festival that was the absolute worst case scenario of an event humanly possible with every last thing planned going to sh**.

The juicy part of it all comes when the person who threw the cash at her happened to be employees at the nearby strip club, Ballarrinas. The owner found her tantrum humorous and had the following to say on Instagram, “WAIT Ashanti ain’t that you in your background video throwing money ?” he wrote. “And aren’t you giving a lap dance ? Lmfao .. she ain’t say nothing to me but you gonna pick on the small white boy lol my Dj ? Damn.”
