LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Cardi B has been hailed for protesting about the rising cost of food and slamming President Joe Biden for soaring inflation, which she claims has led to a surge in groceries prices. The 30-year-old hip hop icon took to her Twitter on January 3 to share a PSA (public service announcement) about having to spend more money on food. "Naaaaaa grocery shopping prices are ridiculous right now, you might as well eat outside!!" she wrote.

The “I Like It” rapper followed up her tweet with an expletive-laden rant, where she urged officials to address the crisis, especially for people in the middle and lower classes who would not be able to pay the skyrocketing prices."When I go to the f***** supermarket... I'm seeing that everything tripled up - that like lettuce was like $2 a couple of months ago and now it's like f****** $7," the rapper said in a video posted to Twitter. "Of course, I'm going to say something. The f****. Because if I think that s*** is crazy, I can only imagine what middle-class people or people in the hood is m***** f***** thinking, so yes I'm going to say something," she added.

"Let me tell you something when I be complaining about food and all y'all m***** f***** be like 'ain't you rich why you complaining about lettuce? Why you complaining about this?' That just goes to show me when you become successful - when you have money - you're going to f***** go broke soon because y'all not budgeting," the Grammy winner noted.

I want to see for myself what the f*** s*** is being spent on."
