Rapper Cardi B made a 60-second inflationary scream on Twitter, drawing support from conservative activists, celebrities and influencers in the process.
The highly viral post, which amassed over 63,000 likes on Twitter, included a “PSA” from the rapper about the “tripling” of food prices.
“What the hell is going on?” she asked.
Cardi B said she gets a “summary of the money being spent in her household” each week, but explained that life has gotten a lot more expensive lately.

“Salad was $2 a few months ago and now it’s f——$7, of course it’s me [going to] say something. That f—?” she said.
The rapper and music star, born Belcalis Almanzar, continued, “Cause when I think s— is crazy, I could only imagine what kind of middle-class people or people in the hood are [are] Motherf —— thinking.”
Cardi B added that despite being wealthy, she has every right to use her global platform of over 27.5 million followers on Twitter alone to speak out on food inflation.
“I want to see for myself” why the prices are so high, she said.

The rapper ended her video by calling for “everyone responsible for this [for] these f—– prices to put the s— the f— down.”
A number of commenters took to Twitter to support Cardi B.
“I agree,” tweeted conservative activist Scott Presler. “That’s why we need to elect a Republican president in 2024.”
Influencers Kevin and Keith Hodge, better known as the Hodgetwins, told Cardi B to walk the talk. “Stop voting for politicians who only care about getting $$$.”
Sisters and conservative influencers Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson reminded Cardi B of the economy under former President Donald Trump. “Can you honestly admit that none of this happened under Trump?”
Cardi B also told fans that even if they become successful, they “will go broke soon” because they aren’t careful enough with the “budget.”
Actress Caroline Williams applauded Cardi B for her attention to personal finance. “I should also be more responsible in my household!”

This isn’t the first time the rapper, who made it big in 2018 with her song “Bodak Yellow,” has popped into business.
In December 2022, she tweeted, “We’re going through a recession… Merry Christmas,” along with a Christmas tree emoji.
Cardi B also pushed back a fan who drew attention to her net worth, reiterating the importance of budgeting. “If I don’t save, work and don’t save my budget, I could lose it too! What makes you think that no matter how much money you have, if you don’t manage your money properly, you can’t lose it all. I also have bills, responsibilities and people to help.”
