Cardi B isn't singing "I Like It" when it comes to butt injections.

The rapper revealed in an Instagram Live that she removed 95% of the biopolymers that were injected into her butt, calling the process "really crazy" and warning young women who have not yet fully developed to not go through the process. She added that she supports women who want to modify their appearances, but cautioned against "a-- shots."

"I all the way support you if you want to do alterations to your body, if you love your body," Cardi B said. "I'm all the way with it. But do not get a-- shots!"

Cardi B also offered advice for those considering getting a Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as a BBL: "Don't ever risk it."

She noted that patients considering the procedure need to have their blood levels "right," meaning those with low blood pressure or who have been diagnosed with diabetes are at higher risk of death during or after the procedure.

The "WAP" rapper has previously spoken about her past struggles with body dysmorphia and getting cosmetic procedures at a young age. During an interview with Mariah Carey last year, Cardi B said that growing up in the Bronx, she was insecure about her "flat" butt and underdeveloped breasts, and underwent cosmetic surgeries to be more voluptuous.

"I had enough money to afford to buy boobs, so every insecurity that I felt about my breasts was gone," Cardi B said during the interview. "When I was 20, I went to the urban strip club, and in the urban strip clubs, you had to have a big butt. So I felt insecure about that. It took me back to high school. So I got my a-- done."

Cardi B pulled from her experience as a dancer in the strip club as inspiration for her role in the 2019 film "Hustlers," which starred Jennifer Lopez and was based on the New York magazine article "The Hustlers at Scores."
