Cardi B is opening up about the "best thing that has happened" to her.
The "Up" rapper took to Twitter over the weekend to share her experiences volunteering after she was sentenced to 15 days community service, saying that the court-mandated service profoundly changed her life.
"Community service has been the best thing that has happened to me. Almost like a spiritual journey because sometimes I leave these centers in tears," Cardi wrote. "Those people that we leave behind, they just need somebody to talk, and a lil push and YOU might be able to change their life forever."

The artist pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment in September 2022 following an incident at a strip club. While initially indicted on twelve counts — including two felonies — ten of the charges were dismissed via her plea deal, which Cardi said she took to hold herself accountable.
"Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it's a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me," she told ET at the time. "I've made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don't define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I'm looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most — the music and my fans."
The rapper has humorously posted about her community service before, writing in another post, "Second day of community service. Obey the law."
Another post reads: “On my way to serve some community service time. DONT COMMIT CRIMES!”
Cardi has until March 1 to complete her service hours, which the specifics of will not be made public.
