Millionaire rapper Cardi B sounded off over skyrocketing inflation, presumably blasting President Biden and anyone else responsible for tripling the cost of groceries, and is demanding that they bring down prices immediately because it’s hurting everyone out there.

In a video she posted on Twitter, she specifically mentioned that a head of lettuce has gone from $2 to $7. Wait until she sees the cost of milk and eggs. Her head may explode.
Cardi B, 30, evidently goes over the household budget every week and couldn’t believe how the cost of food jumped, so she went to a store to see for herself and was shocked by the prices. She may be worth $62 million, but she manages her money so she will never go broke. Food is a big part of that budget.
The rapper stated that if she is having issues with the cost of food, imagine how the middle and lower classes must feel.
“When I go to the f****** supermarket… I’m seeing that everything tripled up – that like lettuce was like $2 a couple of months ago and now it’s like f****** $7,” she said via a viral video on Twitter. “And I have a big platform, so I do want anybody that is responsible for these f****** prices to put that sh*t the f*** down.”

Knowing how others are struggling to buy food, Cardi B decided to speak up. She pointed out that the cost of buying groceries now costs more than eating out.
“Of course, I’m going to say something. The f***. Because if I think that sh*t is crazy, I can only imagine what middle-class people or people in the hood is m***** f****** thinking, so yes I’m going to say something,” the rapper declared.
Incredibly, some asserted that Cardi B shouldn’t be complaining because she is wealthy.
“Let me tell you something, when I be complaining about food and all y’all m***** f****** be like ‘ain’t you rich why you complaining about lettuce? Why you complaining about this?’ That just goes to show me when you become successful – when you have money – you’re going to f****** go broke soon because y’all not budgeting,” she informed her detractors.

“I got a summary of the money that is being spent in my home every week, so when I’m starting to see that like groceries is like tripling up, it’s like ‘ay yo, what the f*** is going on?’ I want to see for myself what the f*** s*** is being spent on,” the Grammy winner stated.
The rapper lives in a $5.8 million 22,000-square-foot mansion in Atlanta, Georiga with her husband Offset, according to the Daily Mail. They have two children, Wave Set, one, and Kulture, four. Offset also has three other children from a previous marriage: sons Jordan, 12, Kody, seven, and daughter Kalea Marie, seven.

Cardi B was outraged in September over the “unbearable” cost of living and the out-of-reach housing market. She helps her family and friends financially and can’t comprehend how others are currently making it.
“There’s no m***** f****** inventory when it comes to homes. Nobody’s gonna try to sell their f****** homes. I was looking at some areas. The way that the prices soar up… like how are people surviving? I want to know. My family and my friends, they’re so grateful to have me, but it’s just like, what happens to people who don’t have a me?” she asked, according to the Daily Mail.
Cardi B drew support from conservative activists, celebrities, and influencers for her commentary on inflation.
“I agree. This is why we need to elect a Republican president in 2024,” conservative activist Scott Presler tweeted.

Sisters and conservative influencers Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson reminded Cardi B that former President Trump had nothing to do with it, “Can you honestly admit that none of this happened under Trump?”

And one voice was about as blunt as it gets: “You got what you voted for boo! Stop voting for a bunch of communist Democrats. They don’t know how to care for our money. Constitutional Conservatives are the way!”
