YG Says Cardi B Will Be Safe During All-Star Weekend, Cardi Addresses Gang Threats [VIDEO]
Last week, Cardi B has beefed up her security after receiving gang threats following an Instagram where she disrespected the Crips. The rap sensation is scheduled to perform during NBA All-Star Weekend and understandably, everyone is afraid of gang violence popping off.
But YG told TMZ that Cardi B will get a pass from the Crips despite her IG post. A cameraman asked the Compton rhymer if it was a good idea for Cardi to come to L.A. to perform during NBA All-Star Weekend.
“The homegirl straight,” he said. “She get love from me.”
While it’s cool that YG gave Cardi a pass, that doesn’t necessarily mean that other gang members are forgiving as well. Just for her safety, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper should have security on deck. We are just saying.
Meanwhile, Cardi B went on her Instagram page to address the gang threats she has been receiving since her post last week.
As you may recall, Cardi posted an image of herself wearing a blue fur coat with the caption, “I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin'."
The term "flue" is a diss towards the Crips gang and threats on her life were allegedly made in the now-since deleted comment section.
In response to a fan who took issue with her use of the word, Cardi detailed her history of being involved in the gang life.
“ALWAYS BEEN IN THE STREETS,” she wrote. “Im militant i know my oath my nation like the back of my hands I came from the streets. I been banging shit since 16 NOT AFTER FAME OR BODAK.”
“NY is mix with bloods and crips and i deff know crips in the Pjs I came home that park shit," she continued. "We say these type of words all the time all of a sudden the world is mad. Now my thing is how was ni**as that soo call claim they ‘GANGSTA’ telling me they next move ? That’s how i figure it’s for clout !cause a real gangsta do shit in silence.”
Reps for Cardi B had no comment on the matter.
