According to a report Deadline Cardi B has just landed her first role on the big screen. The Grammy Award-winning rapper will be playing a stripper alongside the film’s star Jennifer Lopez, as well as Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles and Crazy Rich Asians actress Constance Wu.
Titled Hustlers, the film is inspired by a 2016 article from New York Magazine. It follows a group of former strippers who are now out to get revenge on some of their wealthy clients by running up their credit cards. Cardi has never been shy about sharing her past a stripper in New York clubs for over three years, so she will certainly have plenty of experience to call on for inspiration.
Cardi and J. Lo previously collaborated on the 2018 track “Dinero” with DJ Khaled.
