Cardi B and Fat Joe Step in to Help Victims of Bronx Fire

cardi b and fat joe

Cardi B and Fat Joe represent for the Bronx in a major way.

Only 9 days into the New Year, a high rise fire would strike an apartment building at the Twin Parks North West in the Bronx of New York, killing 17 people. Sadly, 8 of those individuals would be children.

Overall, 44 people were injured from the fire and many took to social media to ask for help as many are houseless, some are even the last of their family following the deadly fire.

After hearing the devastating news, Cardi B stepped in to help cover the cost of funeral and burials for the victims of the tragedy. “I cannot begin to imagine the pain and anguish that the families of the victims are experiencing, but I hope that not having to worry about the costs associated with burying their loved ones will help as they move forward and heal,” Cardi B stated.  “I send my prayers and condolences to everyone affected by this horrific tragedy.”

Cardi B will be partnering with The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City to cover the expenses for the families.

Along with Cardi B, Fat Joe would also collaborate with The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City to provide a relief fund for victims who were impacted by the fire, getting support from Roc Nation who posted the link to Joe’s aid on their website.

“No matter where I go in the world or what I achieve, I could never forget my community,” Fat Joe stated. “I had to react, but I couldn’t do it on my own.” Fat Joe’s efforts raised 1 million dollars along with the help of other celebrities such as Jay-Z and Dj Khaled.

Although Fat Joe raised 1 million dollars, the “Lean Back” rapper shared with Pix11 that he plans on continuing to do what he can to support the victims of the Bronx fire.

“We have so much more to raise,” he stated. “These people have real lifelong issues with emotional [and] mental distress.”

Our hearts and prayers are with the victims of the tragic Bronx fire.

Check out the video below to hear Fat Joe’s explanation as to why he felt he needed to get involved.

Halle Bailey Gives Viral TikTok Song “Hrs and Hrs” A Shot

Halle Bailey Hrs and Hrs

Halle Bailey gives viral TikTok song “Hrs and Hrs” by Muni Long a shot.

Chloe and Halle Bailey have been in the show biz for quite some time. The two talented sisters started making a name for themselves after posting various singing videos of themselves on Youtube.

From youtube to the big screen, the sisters add a new definition to putting respect on their name as they can now be seen in movies, TV shows, dropping albums, and becoming the proteges of Beyonce.

As of lately, the sisters have been showing their talents individually as Chloe Bailey blessed the 2021 VMA Awards with a performance of her single, “Have Mercy” and Halle Bailey has recently wrapped up the live-action version to Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

Before Chloe released her own single, fans were begging the star for solo music as she dropped covers of songs to her Instagram where she showcased her voice.

It looks as if Halle Bailey is showing off her talents too as she took to her social media yesterday to post a cover of her singing the viral TikTok song, “Hrs and Hrs” by Muni Long.

Although some social media users thought Halle gracefully covered the song, others criticized the singer, suggesting that she find a song that fits her voice instead.

Halle later addressed the controversy saying that she loves the song but “sang it an octave higher because it’s too low for me!” she stated. “Lol my sopranos can relate.”

Check out the video of Halle Bailey tackling “Hrs and Hrs.”

Cardi B is preparing for a second week of courtroom action against YouTube vlogger Tasha K.  Speaking on the witness stand last week, Cardi claimed that the rumors spread by Tasha, real name is LaTasha Kebe, impacted her mental health and the she felt “extremely suicidal.” 

The “WAP” rapper went on to detail how she never felt suicidal prior to the vlogger’s allegations.  Cardi admitted to feeling not worthy of having a family and performing her wifely duties. “I felt defeated and depressed and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband.” Cardi added, “I didn’t deserve my kid.”

 She alleged the rumors also caused her to experience fatigue, weight loss, and migraines.  

According to court documents, the YouTuber claimed the Bronx native has herpes, used a beer bottle as a sex toy when she was a stripper, worked as a prostitute and abused cocaine.

Tasha testified earlier in the week and told the court that she spread lies about Cardi to make money for her business.  

The trial began last Monday and is expected to wrap up sometime this week.

The film’s release date was moved to Nov. 11, 2022, and the production for the movie, including Wright as Princess Shuri is back on.

I honestly assert that this was completely untrue,” she wrote. “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me, knows that I work incredibly hard at my craft & my main focus is always to do work that’s impactful and inspiring. That has been & will continue to be my only focus.”

Ari Lennox Expresses Frustration With Being Famous

ari lenox 799

Is Ari Lennox considering retiring? That could be a reach, but the American R&B singer and songwriter did take it to Twitter this morning and expressed her feelings about wanting a different life.

At 12:33 a.m., the “Pressure” singer tweeted out, “I would love to just fall in love, start a family and live a peaceful life.” She followed her tweet with another one stating that she’ll still consider doing one show a year.

Maybe this thought comes from her most recent traumatic arrest in an Amsterdam airport.

On Nov. 29, Dutch military police arrested Lennox for disturbing public order, after she allegedly accused KLM Royal Dutch Airlines staff of racial discrimination.

An airport staff member asked for Lennox’s identification, which led to an altercation between the two. As a result, the Dutch police arrested her. Lennox claimed to be racially profiled, while the police said, “Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn’t calm down. That’s why she had to be taken into custody.”

A few days after the incident, Lennox opened up about her experience via Twitter.

She wrote,
“My only regret is my reaction to the racism and discrimination I experienced. I would like to explain what happened to me but KLM has made it clear that they never cared to hear it from [the] jump. It’s painful being silenced like this. It’s painful what I went through. I’m not ok.”
