New York rapper Cardi B isn’t letting some headline-generating gang threats take down her high. The hip-hop diva has resumed slaying on the ‘gram and sharing her current state of mind.
The “Bartier Cardi” hitmaker went to Instagram Thursday (February 8) with a flashy af pic and caption.
This week, reports surfaced about Cardi catching heat and gang threats over a Crip-related Instagram post.
On Monday, Cardi put up a shot of herself rocking a blue fur coat in Minneapolis. Her caption said, “I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin.” It’s that word “Flue” that has her in serious hot water — it’s a way to knock Crips favorite color, blue, without using the actual word. Cardi’s publicly stated she is a Blood, so the post — which has more than a million likes — pissed off the rival Crips, who not only left angry comments … some flat-out threatened her. The rapper’s scheduled to come to L.A. for NBA All-Star festivities in about 10 days … and her new enemies know it. One comment said, “@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA.” (TMZ)
Subsequently, Cardi has edited the pic to make it captionless and banned commenting.
A few days ago, the Bronx native hinted at possibly hitting the road for a tour with pop star Bruno Mars.
