Cardi B explains why she uses her platform to engage with her fans on politics.
American rapper, Cardi B has spoken out about why she discusses politics with her fans, claiming that she feels it is her job to do so.
In a Netflix interview with David Letterman, the Wap rapper stated she has a platform that allows her to speak about current events as well as her music and luxury lifestyle.
“I don’t really put a lot of political things in my music, but I use my platform. And I have used my platform even when I was a dancer. Because you might think that people are not looking, but they are,” she said.
Continuing she said;
“I mean, I’m a hood chick, and I’m from the Bronx. A lot of people relate to me and follow me because they want to see how I’m dressed, they want to see my lifestyle. I feel like I have a responsibility to also share to them like, ‘Hey, while you here and you’re checking my outfit and checking my music, check out what’s going on over here in this part of the world.”
