Cardi B Helped Her Bronx Community By Handing Out Hundreds of Coats Before New York’s Winter Storms

The weather is getting considerably colder as we head towards the winter months. New York especially has been hit with unseasonably arctic weather this year. However, rap superstar Cardi B isn’t leaving anyone out in the cold. On Thursday evening, Cardi arrived at the Marlboro Houses, a massive housing project located in Gravesend, New York to pass out hundreds of winter coats and shoes to the local community. A trail of locals and Cardi B fans lined up in the brisk weather for the event. She may be used to packed venues while performing, but not even Cardi could anticipate how huge the evening’s crowd would be.

The Bronx-native passed out coats at The Marlboro Houses, a housing project in Gravesend, New York.

The Dominican-Trinidadian rapper’s act of charity came at a time when those out in the streets of New York and or unable to afford proper winter wear were hit with extremely cold temperatures this week.

“I didn’t know it was gonna be so big,” Cardi B told WABC in an interview about the night. “My homeboy Chuck, he told me, ‘Hey, let’s give out coats to our community, I know somebody who wants to give out coats in Marlboro,’ and I said, ‘I’m pulling out, what’s up?'”

The crowds of people who came to see Cardi weren’t the only ones to receive something. The 26-year-old was also presented with balloons and a cake by the Marlboro House staff. The new mom celebrated her birthday on October 11th.

Cardi B was also given a symbolic key to the Marlboro House.

This is just the latest example of the Afro-Latina’s commitment to giving back. During the summer, Cardi donated $8,000 to the family of Lesandro (Junior) Guzman-Feliz. Junior was a victim of mistaken identity and murdered by a group of young men. Cardi posted the donation to Junior’s GoFundMe page under her real name, Belcalis Almanzar.

“We have to set an example for the kids,” the rapper explained to CBS News. “We really care for the kids and our community and everything.”

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.

In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.
