Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, chanted on stage:

“I ain’t going to jail! I ain’t going to jail. [Expletive] you mean? I ain’t going to jail, I got a daughter!”

The 26-year-old New York native was indicted on Friday in connection with a brawl that took place at a Queens Strip cub last August.

According to Page Six, the rapper faces two felony charges of attempted assault, plus additional misdemeanor charges of harassment, solicitation, conspiracy and reckless endangerment.

They also allegedly discussed money being exchanged for carrying out the assault.

BBC reports that two members of Cardi’s team -- Tawana "RemyRojaLaPerla" Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey "AstonMartinChuck" Bush -- are also facing charges in connection with the incident where the rapper is accused of ordering attacks on two bartender sisters at Angels Strip Club.

Cardi is accused of throwing a hookah and bottles at the alleged victims and also ordering members of her team to beat them up because she believed the bartenders had sex with her husband, Offset, according to Page Six.

BBC also reported that the acting Queens District Attorney John Ryan confirmed that Cardi and Jackson-Morel coordinated the day, time, location, and victims of both attacks over a social media platform. They also allegedly discussed money being exchanged for carrying out the assault.

The “Money” rapper rejected a plea deal in April and was arraigned at Queens Supreme Court on Tuesday, June 25, where she pleaded not guilty to all charges.

'...Through this system, ultimately there will be a favorable outcome in favor of Cardi.'

“Not guilty sir, honor," Cardi said in court, according to Reuters.

The Grammy winner and her co-defendants are reportedly expected to return to court in September, and if convicted, they face up to four years in prison.

Cardi’s lawyer, Drew Findling, seems to share his client’s confidence, however, saying: "The rest of the defense team and most importantly our client know that through this system, ultimately there will be a favorable outcome in favor of Cardi."

Cardi’s Tuesday court appearance came only two days after she won “Album of the Year” and “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist” at the 2019 BET Awards.
