Cardi B has concerns about inflation and wants to know how people are surviving with soaring costs.

Cardi is no stranger to speaking about economic and political issues. She was a strong supporter of Bernie Sanders, alongside Dua Lipa, Hailey Bieber, Ariana Grande and Lizzo. Cardi’s latest post showed that The Bronx native continues to keep her finger on the pulse of the American people.

Cardi B went on Instagram Live and spoke to fans about rising costs. A fan recorded part of the IG Live and shared it on Twitter. Cardi saw the repost, and she reiterated her concern with a tweet.

The Bodak Yellow rapper tweeted, “No seriously…I want to know how people are surviving…”

Cardi revealed that she supports many people, but she wondered how people survived without a Cardi B in their life.

Cardi acknowledged that the financial crisis was a worldwide issue. She said that on a recent trip to the Dominican Republic she saw that things were extremely expensive, indicating a global problem.

Cardi also discussed the rising interest rates and why she believed that an increase in interest rates isn’t going to change anything. Another thing that Cardi mentioned was the possibility of blackouts in Los Angeles and Britain, because of high electricity costs.

Although Cardi B earns a staggering amount of money, thanks to her OnlyFans account, the rapper wasn’t always wealthy.

Before Cardi was famous, she struggled as a stripper in The Bronx. Cardi made her way out of the hood thanks to hard work, talent, and luck, but she hasn’t forgotten her humble beginnings.
