Cardi B may be from the Bronx but no borough is off-limits when it comes to giving back. The Bardi gang leader drew a huge Brooklyn crowd at a Boost Mobile store around the Marlboro Houses, last night, when she handed out coats to needy families.
“We’ve gotta set an example for the kids and the future,” Cardi told PIX 11 when she pulled up to the massive event. “You know, sometimes people think that we just be doing the messed up things, but we really, really, really care for our kids, our community and everything,” she added.
Cardi also received a symbolic key to the Marlboro Houses, where shot her popular music videos “Red Barz” and “Pull Up On Me.”
The rapper gushed over the unexpected honor. “I did not know this was going to be so big,” Cardi told the large crowd in a video by PIX-11. “I know you see all of us always in the club [and] in music videos. But we really do care about the kids and we really do want to show people we are positive. People in the media try to make us look like we wild animals or stuff, but we not really about that. We really want to make a change. And how do we start change? With the kids.”
