Cardi B says mandatory community service is the "best thing" to happen to her

Rapper Cardi B has made the claim that having to do court-ordered community service is “the best thing” to ever happen to her, adding that it has been something of a journey of inner spiritual connection. Yesterday, Cardi B wrote on Twitter about her experience at the community service centre.

She wrote, “Community service has been the best thing that has happened to me. Almost like a spiritual journey because sometimes I leave these centers in tears. Those people that we leave behind they just need somebody to talk and a lil push and YOU might be able to change their life forever.”

Evidently, the experience has been a transformative one for Cardi B, and the most recent Tweet is just one in a long line of posts that document her community service. She humbly wrote last week, “Community service ….I have to do a lot of hours today and I’m very sleepy ……..YOU DO THE CRIME YOU DO THE TIME!!!!!”.

Cardi B has not shared any videos from her community service but did show a video of her giving a talk to young women for the NYPD police academy. “I feel like there’s so many people that make y’all probably feel like, ‘This is what’s cool, this is what’s going on, this is what it takes to be lit, this is what it takes to be fire,'” she said in the video. “Sometimes that’s a little bit of peer pressure like on a girl. Don’t fall into that. You know what I’m saying? Like, be great. Be you. You’re amazing. You’re dope yourself.”

The rapper must complete 15 days of community service by March 1st so she can avoid a 15-day jail sentence for two misdemeanour charges from 2018. It came from a time when Cardi B and her team harassed strip club employees as well as assaulted them in the third-degree.
