According to the local outlet, News 12, the visit is part of a partnership tour across the five boroughs of New York with Community Capacity Development. The organization is working to wipe out systemic challenges in marginalized communities of color.
In particular, Cardi praised Community Capacity Development for their efforts in gun violence prevention, youth mentorship, and education.
The appearance in the Bronx comes after Cardi went on Instagram Live to discuss surging rent costs across America.
“I was looking at some areas. The way that the prices soar up…like how are people surviving? I want to know. My family and my friends, they’re so grateful to have me, but it’s just like, what happens to people who don’t have a me?” the rapper asked her fans.
