Cardi B Calls out Haters Who Criticize Her Spending Habits

Cardi B Calls out Haters Who Criticize Her Spending Habits

(FreshAsFrankie) Cardi B, one of hip-hop’s most outspoken artist, says she’s tired of people criticizing how she spends her cash.

The Bronx native’s smash song “Bodak Yellow” steadily climbed the charts, reaching No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She became the first solo female rapper to hit No.1 since Lauryn Hill released her single “Doo Wop” in 1998. So it should come as no surprise that Cardi likes to enjoy the rewards of her hard work.

However, Cardi B took to Instagram on Wednesday explaining that she doesn’t post every time she helps someone because if she did- the gesture would become less “genuine.”

“I hate my public figures spend money like on jewelry, on [cars], on something real flashy. People be like ‘you could be helping people out with that. You could be doing better deeds. You should be investing that money”.

Cardi continued, “How do you know that they not helping other people out. It wouldn’t be genuine if they post every time, they help somebody out.”

“How tacky and nasty would it look every time I break off my moms, break off my dad, break off my grandmama and I show it on the gram like ‘hey look’ that’s not genuine. That’s not being real. That’s not really helping somebody cause of the heart.” Cardi said.

Kodak Black Affiliate Claims Cardi B. Stole His Friend's Flow
(FreshAsFrankie) Jackboy, a close Kodak Black affiliate took to Instagram to blast Cardi B for “taking his friend’s flow” and using it on her No.1 song “Bodak Yellow.”

“You Blowed Off Of Stealing My N***a Flow If Anything You Should Suck A N***a D**k From Sq, Broward Or Florida Its Only Right This Message Is Approved By Jackboi,” he wrote. DJ Akademiks released the post on his Instagram account and pointed out that it might be a hack since Jackboy is currently incarcerated.

Despite some of the criticism, Cardi B seems to not care at all about stealing flows from other rappers and addressed her haters during a recent show. “I’ma sound like all your favorite rappers. I’ma take all the flow and I’ma body it b***h,” she said. “One day I’ma sound like Kodak [Black], the next day I’m a sound like Meek Mill, the next day I’ma sound like Migos. I don’t give a f**k.”

Jackboy is a member of Kodak’s crew Sniper Gang. He has songs on YouTube with millions of views. He was arrested on several felony charges back in August and was chased by police with a helicopter, according to AllHipHop.com.

Cardi B’s ‘Bodak Yellow’ Hits No. 1 On Billboard Hot 100

Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow' Hits No. 1 On Billboard Hot 100
(FreshAsFrankie) Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” is the No. 1 song in America, reports Billboard. After climbing the charts over the last few weeks, Cardi’s hit has dethroned Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” single for the top spot, marking her first solo No. 1 hit.

This makes Cardi only the second female rapper to top the chart without a featured artist, following Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998. She’s also the first female soloist to go No. 1 with a debut single unaccompanied by another artist since Meaghan Trainor‘s “All About That Bass” in 2014.

 

Cardi B Calls Gangs to Action If White Nationalists Show Up in NYC

(FreshAsFrankie) Cardi B was overcome with the spirit of the protest movement to confront white supremacy head on, on Saturday, August 19. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper apparently got word that a group of white nationalists was coming to rally in New York City, and she put an immediate call to action out for the hood to come out and give them a Bronx style welcome.

“White nationalist coming to NY tomorrow. I needs every Brim set, Stones, Blazers, Trey to pop out !!!!! S**t you crip motherf**kers too. UNITED WE MUST STAND !!!,” a message that Cardi shared on Instagram read. In the caption of the post she was more specific about the logistics of the said gathering, and how to best come prepared. “I think n****s going to be in Suffolk County …N****s MUST TAKE THE METRO NORTH AND MAKE IT THERE SOME WAY OR ANOTHER!!!… PUT YA TIMBS ON !”

It was difficult to find any information on a Sunday rally of any sort in Suffolk County. There indeed were a couple of demonstrations in New York City, but they weren’t organized by right-wing or conservative organizations of any sort, except for one that was supposed to bring alt-right supporters together outside of Google headquarters to defend an employee who was fired for sending out an anti-diversity memo. That gathering was scheduled for Saturday, however, and the organizers actually wound up canceling over safety concerns.

Cardi may have been talking about Suffolk, VA, where a protest dubbed “Justice for Dre Peace Rally” was planned in support of 20-year-old Deandre Harris, who’s photo of blood pouring from his head after being attacked by neo-Nazis at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville last weekend has spread throughout social media. Unfortunately, that rally too was canceled due to fear that tensions might boil over.

But Cardi may want to keep her collective of NYC’s hardest counter-protesters good and ready for any future Suffolk County rallies, because Long Island certainly does has its share of white supremacist hate groups. In fact, it has been discovered that Christopher Cantwell, the 36-year-old white nationalist rabble-rouser who Vice centered its documentary Charlottesville: Race and Terror around, is actually a former Suffolk County resident who lived on Skylark Lane in Stony Brook.
