    It looks like even rappers suffer from cabin fever during the coronavirus self-quarantine period: Cardi B recently took to social media to deliver another tirade about the ongoing global pandemic.

    During an Instagram livestream on March 18, Cardi updated her fans on how her self-isolation at home has been going. She then proceeded to demand The Pentagon, which is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, to release any hidden information about the COVID-19 outbreak.

    “If you work at the fucking Pentagon, let a bitch know… I need to know,” she told her viewers during the stream. “I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m losing my fucking mind. I want to get dressed up. I want to put a fucking lacefront on, I want to put on my fucking expensive outfits, and I want to go fucking out. And I can’t!”

    Just last week, Cardi went viral after a previous coronavirus rant of hers was remixed into a trap anthem by Brooklyn-based producer DJ iMarkkeyz. The song, titled “Coronavirus Remix,” broke through the iTunes’ Hip-Hop/Rap Songs chart on March 16 and climbed to the second spot yesterday.

    Cardi later joked that she wanted to claim the royalties from the remix, but added that she would donate them to those affected by the coronavirus. “Keep in mind, you don’t get your money right away,” she tweeted. “But even months from now there would be families with financial issues for getting laid off due to the virus. We will donate!”
