“I have a big smile on my face to see how funny you are, how pretty you are, how you put your outfits together, how you do your nails while you’re fighting [cancer],” she shared. “I be thinking I be havin’ it tough and other people probably think that they having it tough. […] It definitely motivates me to whatever Im going through and I hope that people look at your page and get motivated.”
Cardi then gave a shout-out to Lyrics parents, saying, “It is so heartbreaking watching the last video on your page and as a mother I wouldn’t know what to do. I commend you so much. It is so tough being a parent and I can only imagine.”
