Cardi B's NSFW government shutdown rant remixed into a hit song
The folks behind Auto-Tune the News from days of internet past now worked their magic on Cardi B’s government shutdown rant.
The Gregory Brothers — a.k.a. Evan, Andrew, Michael, and Sarah — gave the internet viral hits like “Bed Intruder” with Antonie “Hide Your Kids” Dodson and “Can’t Hug Every Cat.” Now they give us “Yeah B— / Nah B—,” a remix of Cardi B’s no-holds-barred takedown of President Trump and the longest government shutdown in the history of the country.
“So excited for our first co-write with @iamcardib,” The Gregory Brothers, who tapped the Invasion of Privacy rapper’s beat from “Bodak Yellow” for the video, tweeted.
Cardi B’s original video, posted to her Instagram on Wednesday, called out Trump and the White House for “ordering federal workers to go back to work without getting paid” during the shutdown.
The 26-year-old has since posted a response to users online arguing she “shouldn’t talk about politics.”
“Well I know a little something something,” she fired back on Instagram.
“That is the most amazing thing ever! That is so dope,” Trevor Noah said on The Daily Show of Cardi B’s comments.
“How cool would it be if Cardi B somehow ended the shutdown?” he continued. “Like we find out Trump is a major fan because ‘Bodak Yellow’ is his favorite song and also the color of his hair.”
