Cardi B and her crew were in Albany, N.Y., over the weekend, and she says that the Hilton Albany Hotel where they were staying kicked them out over accusations of marijuana smoke.

Early Sunday morning, after receiving complaints about the smell of weed, hotel employees told the rapper everyone had to leave, but Cardi says the weed smell was coming from somewhere else.


“The floor that I was staying in in my hotel room, it smelled like weed. So the cops came in the middle of the night, knocking on my manager and on my door, talking about that we were smoking weed and we gotta get kicked out,” the former Love & Hip Hop star said in an Instagram video.

“Now, if you know me, I don’t even talk about smoking weed because everybody knows that I do not smoke weed. I get very paranoid and none of my team members smoke weed. If they was to kick us out for something else, all right, but for weed? I’m not taking that because we do not smoke. I could get, we could all get drug-tested, nobody smokes. Nobody smokes, especially when I’m sleeping and I’m wild sick,” she added.

As Cardi was escorted out of the hotel by a police officer, she knocked over an object and shouted, “Racist motherfuckers!”


In her now-deleted Instagram video, she called out the city and cops for being racist.

“And then niggas is just gonna pick out of everybody on the floor, Caucasians, that it was us that was smoking the weed in the middle of the night?” she said. “That shit is not fucking right. Like, niggas was really being racists. Motherfuckers was being prejudiced and picking on who the fuck they thought that was smoking weed, and you got the wrong fucking one. I’m telling you, I do not smoke weed.”
