Rapper Cardi B fumed in a video she posted to social media Wednesday evening over how food prices have surged under the Biden administration.
Cardi B, who previously encouraged people to vote for Biden, has expressed frustration over the last couple of years with the state of the economy and inflation.
“I get a summary of the money that’s being spent in my home every week,” she said. “So, when I’m starting to see that like groceries is like tripling up, it’s like, hey yo, what the f*** is going on? I want to see for myself what the f*** s*** is being spent on. And like when I go to the f***ing supermarket, like I went to the supermarket, I’m seeing that everything tripled up.”
“Lettuce was like $2 a couple of months ago and now it’s like f***ing $7. Of course I’m gonna say something! The f***?” she continued. “Cause if I think that s*** is crazy, I can only imagine what middle class people or people in the hood is motherf***ing thinking.”
“So, yes, I’m going to say something,” she concluded. “The f***? And I have a big platform so I do want everybody that’s responsible for these f***ing prices to put that s*** the f*** down. They gonna see my s***, they might put it down.”

Back in December, the rapper warned that the U.S. was in a recession.
“We going through a recession…..Merry Christmas,” she tweeted.
After another Twitter user responded with “Says the rapper worth 40 million,” Cardi B noted that just because she is wealthy does not mean she could be hurt by a poor economy.
“I’m worth more [than] that and guess what? If I don’t save, work and budget I could lose it too!” she tweeted.
