(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”.
“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.

(FreshAsFrankie) Rapper Cardi B has shot down reports she and boyfriend Offset are secretly engaged.
The “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” hitmaker wore a flowing white gown to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, prompting some fans to suggest the look was a hint about an upcoming wedding.
But the 34-year-old said, “It is not true…! I’m looking like I’m getting married, but I’m not there.”
The couple went public with the romance in February, and Cardi admits she’s very happy with the Migos star, telling red carpet reporters, “A lot of love, sex, communication (makes it work).”
But a source says, “Cardi and Offset are not engaged yet, but they are moving very very fast!
“Offset has bought Cardi so many diamonds, bags, shoes, he has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on her and she is so in love with him. I can see them getting engaged… They do call each other husband and wife.”
