Cardi B To Star In Jennifer Lopez Stripper Flick

Cardi B will make her big screen debut playing a stripper in the movie Hustlers.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 26-year-old rapper has signed on for the movie, which also stars Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart and Keke Palmer.

Hustlers is an adaptation of a New York article by Jessica Pressler about former strip club workers who hatched a plan to steal from wealthy Wall Street clients in the late 2000s. The film will be directed by Lorene Scafaria.

Cardi B has said that working as a stripper from the age of 19 helped her escape from poverty and an abusive relationship.

She previously had a small role in the drama Being Mary Jane and spent two seasons on Love and Hip Hop: New York.
