NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Cardi B would make one fierce felon!

The Bronx native arrived at a Queens courthouse Tuesday and sauntered in decked out in a feather-trimmed black coat with a very long train.

The Grammy-winning rapper faces felony charges stemming from an August 2018 fight at a strip club.

The court session centered on her lawyers’ efforts to get access to the alleged victims’ social-media messages.

“We believe she’s innocent, and so we’re investigating all aspects,” lawyer Drew Findling said after the court appearance.

Cardi B whispered to him and attorney Jeff Kern in court but otherwise didn’t speak.

She has pleaded not guilty, and her lawyers have denied she harmed anyone.

Police have said Cardi B, 27, and her entourage argued with a bartender at Angels Strip Club. The dispute sparked a bottle-and-hookah-pipe throwing fracas that caused minor injuries to the woman and another employee, according to police.
