THE DEAL The rapper’s strip club drama has been given an official release date of Sept. 13. Her co-star, Jennifer Lopez, announced the news in an Instagram video earlier this week. Inspired by “The Hustlers at Scores,” a New York magazine article by Jessica Pressler, the film is set in New York City and tells the story of former strip club workers who take advantage of their Wall Street clients. Cardi B is a former stripper who claimed in a years-old video that she once drugged and robbed men. “Whether or not they were poor choices at the time,” she said recently, “I did what I had to do to survive.”
