With the coldest weather fast approaching, rapper Cardi B went to Brooklyn to hand out free coats.
The 26-year-old Bronx native was surrounded by hundreds of fans and residents on Thursday when she delivered coats at the Marlboro Homes in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The coats were donated by Daniel & # 39; s Leather, according to AMNewYork, who added that the singer "Bodak Yellow" also distributed shoes.
"It's good, it's very nice that she's doing this for the people, really, because the people here need a lot of help," one woman told WABC.
The Grammy-nominated rapper told WABC he did not expect mass participation.
"I did not know it was going to be that big," he said. "My friend, Chuck, told me: Hey, we give out coats to our community, I know someone who wants to hand out coats in Marlboro, and I said: I'm going to retire, what's wrong? # 39; "
Cardi B recently celebrated her 26th birthday and gave birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, with the rapper Offset in July.
