Cardi B Reveals Why She Thinks Lean And Weed Abuse Have Made Rap Music Depressing

The Grammy award-winning artist headed to her IG Live to share her thoughts

Cardi B is hoping that the music scene in the clubs can be like it used to be. After hopping on an Instagram Live session, the “Up” rapper shared her opinion on what she thinks is missing from the nightlife scene.

“I know what ni**as is missing in the club…me!” she said during her IG Live. “They missing me, they missing my music. And now that I’m in the game and everything and I be seeing all these muthafu**as on Twitter like, ‘You need to have rap, you need to have bars, you need to have this…’ I want to make music to turn the fu*k up. ’Cause when I go to the club, that’s what ni**as wanna hear. I feel like we keep hearing the same song over and over and over again.”

The Grammy-winning artist also said that she believes that lean and marijuana abuse that rappers heavily talk about in their songs is making partying dull and depressing.

“All these ni**as need to stop doing lean and smoking weed. You know, this is the thing about these rappers, right? They get money and they start buying too much muthaf***in’ weed, and too much lean and they make that slow sh*t,” she added. “The club needs me. The strippers need me. The hoes need me. The muthaf***in’ get money ni**as need me.”

The Bronx rapper later headed to her Twitter to clarify her comments.

“I just want a balance, sorry if I worded things wrong,” Cardi tweeted. “I just love music, that drop hard and turn the club up [music] like dreams & nightmare & First day out by tee grizzly. A perfect balance of rap and turn up.”
