Add Cardi B to the list of rappers who are riding for Colin Kaepernick. The former NFL quarterback’s controversy is still alive and well, and the Bronx rapper has her own boycott in mind, as a way of showing support. TMZ ran into Bardi Saturday night (Feb. 3), at the Maxim Party in Minneapolis, Minn., and asked the “Bodak Yellow” MC when she was going to perform during a Super Bowl halftime show. Cardi was quick with her response, stating plainly, “When they hire Colin Kaepernick back.”
Her enunciation is a little off, but you get the point. Many rappers have been showing support for Kaepernick, who has been unable to get even a back-up QB job since protesting police brutality by kneeling during the National Anthem during games, including J. Cole, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z. Most recently, Meek Mill, Joey Bada$$ and Nick Cannon made $10,000 donations to the Kaepernick-affiliated charity, Communities United for Police Reform, in New York City. T.I., Chris Brown, Jhene Aiko and more have also donated $10,000 to Kaepernick’s million-dollar pledge campaign.
“Despite my brother @meekmill’s current circumstances, he continues to stay connected in the community of Philly,” Kaepernick recently tweeted. “He pledged to go 10for10 on my MillionDollarPledge. We’re both donating $10k for a combined $20k to Youth Service Inc. Keep staying strong Meek, we love you brother!”
