Rapper Cardi B appeared on Wednesday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and told the host that, although he likes politics, he does not want the government to think he's "up to something."
"I've always been interested in politics, but now I have to be careful what I say you know," said Cardi B. "If I make certain statements, I feel that the government will say something like" this girl may be up to something, it is possible that we have to get rid of her. "
While she may have been very strict with her policy on Kimmel, the 26-year-old Bronx-born artist encouraged millennials to go out and vote at the Global Citizens Festival in New York City last month, according to Yahoo. .
When Kimmel mentioned an idea for the rapper to run for the mayor of New York City, he said the position is "something that you have to be extremely responsible" before responding with a potential platform.
"There are so many things I want to do, rats, raccoons," said Cardi B. "I want to get rid of them … they're everywhere, and you know what, something about rats, they scare you, but raccoons, they scare you, they look at you like "why are you in my yard, my trash?"
Earlier this month, Cardi B turned herself in to authorities and was charged with assault in connection with a fight at a strip club in New York.
