Cardi B played an exotic dancer in 2019’s ‘Hustlers’

Jennifer Lopez brought together an all-star cast for her 2019 drama Hustlers. Cardi B played a dancer named Diamond. She didn’t climb the pole for her role but she did perform in other ways. Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, and singer Lizzo also star.

The movie was based on an article in New York Magazine that went viral. Hustlers is a film about a strip club and a group of past employees who used devious methods to rob the club’s Wall Street clientele. Cardi B has stated to VOX in the past that she regretted this past behavior while she was a real exotic dancer.
