New York rapper Cardi B knows her words are weapons. The hip-hop newcomer has stepped forward with a reaction to her must-watch anti-taxes clip gaining mainstream attention.
Cardi went to Instagram this weekend to add a few thoughts to her must-see video.
I can’t believe my video made the news😩YA watch out for me I’m scared!I don’t want GT coming o for me 😥A lot of people responded to this video like they spend our tax money in welfare ,SSI ,military but how do you know tho?where is the prove? My neighborhood still look like shit!They can’t even afford to put Metal detectors in ALL the schools but we have money for a wall and war🤔…..Don’t mind me thoo I’m just a ex stripper with bad grammar and heavy accent 🤷🏽♀️
Earlier this week, music mogul Diddy 100 percent co-signed Cardi’s epic rant.
“The government is taking 40 percent of my taxes and Uncle Sam, I want to know what you’re doing with my f*cking tax money because you know what I’m saying, when you donate to a kid from a foreign country, they give you updates of what they’re doing with your donation. I want to know what you’re doing with my f*cking tax money because I’m from New York and the streets is always dirty. We were voted the dirtiest city in America. What is y’all doing? There’s still rats in the trains. I know y’all not spending it on the d*mn prison because y’all be giving n*ggas two underwears, one jumpsuit for like five months. So what is y’all doing with my f*cking money? What is y’all doing with my f*cking money?! I want to know. I want receipts. I want everything. I want to know what y’all are doing with my f*cking money. What is y’all doing with my f*cking money. Uncle Sam, I want to know what you’re doing with my f*cking money.”
In a new GQ interview, Diddy revealed his plans to launch a new app with rap icon JAY-Z to help people locate black-owned businesses.
He said he wants to develop an app that will allow users to look at a given city or neighborhood and see where the black-owned and black-friendly businesses are. He didn’t want to say too much about the app. It wasn’t finished. He didn’t have a name for it yet. “This is not about taking away from any other community,” he said. “We’ll still go to Chinatown. We’ll still buy Gucci!” He laughed. “But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It’s about blacks gaining economic power.” He and Jay-Z have been talking about this, he said, about moving the race forward actively, by means of: making a lot of money and putting it back into the community.

Earlier this month, JAY-Z made headlines after finally dethroning Puffy from Forbes‘ annual wealthiest hip-hop artists list.
Jay-Z upped his net worth from $810 million to $900 million over the past year, seizing hip-hop’s cash crown for the first time since Forbes started counting back in 2011. The Brooklyn-born mogul’s jump is due mostly to the rising value of his interests in Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac, on top of nine-figure ownership stakes in his Roc Nation empire and Tidal streaming service. Dre ranks third with $770 million, creeping upward thanks to the market trends boosting his nine-figure windfall from Apple’s $3 billion buyout of Beats in 2014. (Forbes)
