Police say Cardi B and her entourage argued with a bartender at Angels Strip Club in 2018.
She allegedly told eight people, including Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush, to assault sisters Baddie Gi and Jade.
The sisters were working as bartenders at the strip club, and Cardi B allegedly believed Jade was having an affair with her husband, Offset.
Cops say a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to one of the women woman and another employee.
The performer had previously denied harming anyone.
Cardi B had originally only been charged with misdemeanors. But the charges escalated after prosecutors presented the case to a grand jury when she rejected a plea deal that would have given her a conditional discharge.
