The Bronx-born, Atlanta-residing artist Cardi B has been using her influence for the greater good of the country, especially when it comes to social justice. Both she and other celebs have become more publically involved, more notably Jay-Z, who came under a bit of fire recently when he signed a partnership with the NFL for social justice reform.
Cardi was recently stopped by TMZ in New York City on Aug. 17 while leaving Jason Lee's birthday party at the Bryant Park Hotel. She filled TMZ in on her thoughts about Jay-Z's involvement with the NFL's social justice initiatives. "I feel like he could make a change," Cardi told the reporter. "I feel like he went in there like, 'Alright, you guys want me to work with y’all, y’all need to bring my peoples in there. Y’all need to do things my way.'"
She even mentioned Colin Kaepernick, to say, "I feel like Jay-Z could bring back Colin Kaepernick. I feel like he has that power." With Kap's famed situation with the NFL what it is, these are big words from the Hip-Hop artist.
When the reporter asked if she has considered pursuing politics, she said that although she is passionate about it, she prefers to leave it to those who have more time because she is focused on so many things, like music and baby Kulture.
She also told TMZ that it would be an option for her to perform at The White House if Bernie Sanders is elected president in the 2020 election. "Sure why, not?" she responded.
TMZ also tried to get the lowdown on Cardi's thoughts about having her own talk show. "You know, my mouth is a little bit too slick for a talk show," she told the reporter. Who knows, though, maybe now that the idea is out there she could change her mind.
