Fearless, caring, thoughtful.

Rapper Cardi B, who is a Bronx native, plans to pay the funeral costs for those who lost their lives in a deadly fire in that New York City borough.

In total, 17 people died  after a fire ripped through their Bronx apartment building.

“People, friends, and family are devastated by the loss of their friends and family in the Bronx,” says someone in the article.

The state of New York announced this week that it would be granting 2 million dollars to people n the Bronx.

Cardi B said in a statement to CNN that “I’m extremely proud to be from the Bronx and I have lots of family and friends who live and work there.”

“So, when I heard about the fire and all of the victims, I knew I needed to do something to help,” she said.

 “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,” says Cardi B.
