Cardi B is giving fans an update on how her family has been coping since the death of Migos member Takeoff.

In a voice note obtained by The Neighborhood Talk, she reveals they’ve been trying to live their lives “normally,” but she’s been feeling “hopeless” in trying to cheer up her husband, Offset, Takeoff’s bandmate and cousin.

“We’re living our life normally, but deep down inside our hearts have been so heavy,” she says. “I feel like if I talk about – the internet’s so desensitized – how we really feel…y’all would start saying, ‘Oh sympathy.’”

“We don’t want no sympathy,” Cardi continues. “We ain’t no charity case, but no lie, I have been feeling so hopeless trying to make my husband happy, trying to make him crack a smile.”

She says it’s been tough seeing Offset “randomly cry” as he continues to process the loss.

Takeoff was shot and killed on November 1 at a bowling alley in Houston, where he and Quavo, his uncle and fellow Migos bandmate, were attending a party. He was 28.
