A famous rapper criticized the mayor of New York City during a live stream on social media, addressing recent budget cuts in the city and expressing concerns that issues related to crime and sanitation would worsen.
"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," Cardi B said.
"I'm from the Bronx, I don't want to see my s--- affected," she said, according to a report obtained after the video went viral.

New York City declared on Thursday that it would be reducing budgets for police and education amidst efforts to manage the ongoing migrant crisis.
The New York Police Department plans to halt hiring, aiming to reduce its workforce to below 30,000 by the end of fiscal year 2025, down from over 33,000. Significant reductions are also anticipated in education, including the universal pre-kindergarten program, and in sanitation services.
Mayor Adams, who began his term last year, unveiled a budget of $110.5 billion, stating that reductions in all city departments are necessary. This is in response to the city's expenditure of $1.45 billion in fiscal 2023 on handling the migrant crisis, with an anticipated spend of nearly $11 billion over 2024 and 2025.
"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.
"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------ budget cut so that means we're gonna be drowning in rats," Cardi B said.
"Everybody be like ‘New York is dirty,’ and it is dirty, and we're going to get even dirtier with the f-----g budget cut."
The rapper also stated that she would not endorse any future presidential candidates. She had previously supported President Biden during the 2020 election.
"I'm not endorsing no f------ president no more," she said, noting that as New York City was facing budget cuts, "Joe Biden's talking about, ‘Yeah, we can fund two wars.’"
