Cardi B's Best Moments From Back When She Was Just a 'Regulah Degulah Shmegulah Girl From the Bronx'

Way back when, before Cardi B was No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and had over 90 pairs of Louboutins, the Bronx rapper was just a humble stripper trying to make some money moves.

Well, kind of.

As we discovered on Tuesday (Sep. 25), not only was our bae in a series of local sex toy shop commercials, one of which still airs on local cable and another (not the same cable ad) that ends with her grinding on a jacked and "aroused" male sex doll, she also was in a handful of Brooklyn and Bronx based commercials as well, not to mention her stint on VH1's Love and Hip Hop back in 2015.

Cardi B Once Played With a Massive Dildo in Local Sex Toy Store Ad

In a 2015 commercial for Pawn Rite, a chain of local discount pawn shops, Cardi is the star, sitting opposite a guy trying to take her out on a nice dinner date but needing to pawn off all his belongings to pay for the $47,221.09 check. "Yes, at Pawn Rite we'll loan you cash on gold, cars, diamonds, watches, jewelry, and sneakers!" Cardi's voiceover says. In the Love and Hip Hop Season 6 promo, Cardi says she's just a "regulah degulah shmegulah girl from the Bronx," and back in April of 2016, the rapper tells "Amurica" she has decided to listen to the people ("for the first time because I don't be listenin' to y'all") and has chosen to run for president, where her first duty as commander in chief would be making sure people could use food stamps to buy McDonalds "because that is so annoying that you can only buy food from the store and seafood with food stamps."
