Cardi B took to Twitter this week to share some throwback pictures and along with them some advice: don’t smoke, kids.

In the post, the rapper shared three pictures of herself at 15, including one where she can be seen with a cigarette in her mouth.

“Dear little girls, don’t smoke cigarettes or weed trying to look cool for the seniors cause you really gonna grow up and see how dumb you look doing it,” she wrote. “Seriously tho what was I thinking? Anyways naaa my mustache was too much.” 

Cardi’s followers praised for the advice and called the 27-year-old rapper a “great role model.” However, many also questioned the artist’s point of view, and one even got a clapback from the Cardi herself when she asked her if she was “hearing” herself.

“YES! Very clear,” Cardi replied. “I was a teenager and I used to smoke like ALOT OF TEENS and now I’m telling teens that smoking while you under 18 really make you look stupid and ADULTS really think you look STUPID!”

Cardi B has revealed in the past that she is not too fond of weed because it makes her “paranoid” after a fan suggested she use marijuana to help with her anxiety. 

However, it seems that the rapper turned actress is doing just fine without it. 
Aside from becoming one of the hottest rap stars in the world, the artist has been taking the film industry by storm as well, starring earlier this year in the movie Hustlers alongside J-Lo and officially getting a role in the next Fast And Furious installation. As for her music, fans likely won’t have to wait too long to hear her new album, as it is set to come out in 2020.
