Yesterday (June 25), Cardi B pleaded not guilty to her attempted assault strip club case.

According to a report from TMZ, the judge informed Bardi that she was being charged with attempted assault in the second degree and various other charges. When asked about whether or not she wanted to read all of her charges aloud, Cardi politely declined.

"Not guilty sir, honor," Cardi said in New York Supreme Court in the borough of Queens.

Last week, Cardi was indicted on 12 charges, which includes two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment. If Cardi is convicted, she could face up to four years in prison. As per E! News, she is set to find out her next court date after her co-defendants' hearing in September.

On a lighter note, Cardi's music career is at an all-time high. At the 2019 BET Awards, Cardi was awarded Album of the Year for her debut LP Invasion of Privacy. On top of that, she also won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

During her acceptance speech, Cardi gave thanks to everyone who had a helping hand in making her LP. She credited Chance The Rapper, J Balvin, Kehlani, her producers and more.

"I'm glad that I made an album that your sister, your mother, your grandmother like it, all you b---hes be like aye-yi-ki-ki, thank you very much!" she said.

In a post uploaded to Instagram, Cardi shared that she is releasing her music video for "Press" today (June 26). In the snippet, Cardi is seen being dragged into an interrogation room. Being the boss that she is, she proceeds to blow a cigarette in the authority's face.
