New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced major budget cuts, including to the police department, and rapper Cardi B is sounding the alarm.
The Grammy-winning singer took to a livestream video to slam the Democrat mayor in a profanity-filled message after his recent announcement of widespread budget cuts due to the “sanctuary” city’s surge in an illegal immigrant population.
The 31-year-old rapper railed against Adams, beginning her message by warning that “if something happens to me” it’s because she is “speaking truth,” adding that the “120 million budget cut on schools, libraries, police department and sanitation, b—h New York is already f—–g super dirty.”

“How is there 100 million dollar budget cut in New York City for f—–g schools, library, police safety and sanitation, yet Joe Biden is talking about ‘yeah, we can fund two wars,'” added Cardi B, who was born in the Bronx and whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar Cephus.
Admas announced the 5% budget cuts last week which “will kneecap departments throughout the Big Apple,” according to the New York Post which noted that they are “the first of three rounds Adams has ordered to compensate for the billions of dollars the city has spent taking care of asylum seekers who have flooded New York.”

“What’s going to happen to my nieces, what’s going to happen to my nephews, what’s going to happen to my cousins, my aunts, my friends that’s living in the hood,” demanded Cardi B. “I’m from the Bronx, I don’t want to see my s–t affected.”
“Everybody be like ‘New York is dirty,’ and it is dirty,” she continued. “And we’re going to get even dirtier with the f—ing budget cut.”
According to the Daily Mail:
The budget cuts would cause NYPD officers to be cut by a fifth, or 13.5 percent, by postponing the next five academy classes, bringing officers below 30,000 – down from 36,000.
Education would also take a $1 billion hit over two years and it would cause a delay in the rollout of composting in the Bronx and Staten Island, causing reduced trash pick-ups as well as cuts to the city’s pre-K programs.
The New York Public Library, Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Public Library also would need to eliminate Sunday service due to the budget cut.
“Without sufficient funding, we cannot sustain our current levels of service, and any further cuts to the Libraries’ budgets will, unfortunately, result in deeper service impacts,” read a statement from the libraries.
Cardi B continued sounding the alarm in her video message.
“If your kid can’t f—–g buy books at the book fairs and s–t, your kid can barely even f—–g read at a local library, they’re going to close that s–t,” she railed.
“Crimes are gonna go through the roof because there is a police safety budget cut and on top of that there’s a sanitation f—–g budget cut so that means we’re gonna be drowning in rats,” she added, both touching on the cancelation of the next five police academy classes as well as a reported $32 million cut for the city’s sanitation department.
“To balance the budget as the law requires, every city agency dug into their own budget to find savings, with minimal disruption to services,” Adams said in a statement. “And while we pulled it off this time, make no mistake: Migrant costs are going up, tax revenue growth is slowing, and COVID stimulus funding is drying up.”
Meanwhile, Cardi B issued a warning for those not living under Mayor Adams’ leadership.
“Mayor Eric said it, there’s a budget cut going on in New York, and little by little it’s going to go in y’alls states,” she said. “The mayor says $120 million budget cut, and trust me, if they’re making a big a– budget cut in New York City, watch it’s going to start going to your state.”
