Cardi B has opened up about the character she plays in the forthcoming Fast & Furious film, F9.
In a promotional video, the Grammy-winning rapper talked about how her character, Leysa, is a “powerful, strong woman”.
Cardi also spoke about how she was originally approached for the film.
“Vin Diesel reached out and he was talking about a role,” she recalled. “I’m like, ‘It’s freakin Fast & Furious. Get me there, put me on a plane!’
“I like the fact that I’m representing such a powerful, strong woman,” she added. “She’s just that b****! I remember when I saw Ludacris in Fast & The Furious... then to see Don Omar, it makes the hood have hope. Being around Vin, he’s just so nice, so dope. He makes you feel so comfortable. I’m just so excited. He's just such a badass.”
