Cardi B is putting her money where her mouth is when it comes to helping those in need amid the coronavirus crisis. On Wednesday, the rapper revealed that she's partnering with apparel company Fashion Nova to give away $1,000 every hour until May 20 to anyone who's having a hard time making ends meet. "I've been getting a lot of DMs from people in need...We are going to give out $1,000 an hour for the next 42 days," she said in an Instagram video. Submissions are being accepted at, where you just have to say how the money will help you. Cardi also says don't try to scam her. "I'm gonna make sure that you really do need it, don't be lying so you can lend your f**king boyfriend some money," she explained. "No, you don't gotta show us your p**sy--although if you want to DM it to me, I don't f**king mind." She ended her post by telling followers, "Don't be shy, sometimes you gotta motherf**king ask for help," before breaking into the Bill Withers classic, "Lean on Me."
