Cardi B might have opened a can of worms with a recent post where she appears to diss the Crips, leading to gang threats, just as she is about to embark on a trip to Los Angeles to perform three gigs during NBA All-Star Weekend. But Compton, Calif., rapper, YG, doesn't seem to think she should be too worried.

As previously reported, on Tuesday (Feb. 6), drama flared after Cardi posted a photo of herself on Instagram. In the pic, she poses with a royal blue fur coat on. "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin," she captioned the photo. This was seen as a slight to the Crips, because in gang culture Bloods often avoid using the letter "C," as a dig at the other side, and to notify others where they stand. After receiving threats, she deleted the caption and disabled the comments on the post.

The venues in Los Angeles where she is performing are taking the threats seriously, however, and are planning to beef up security when she performs.

TMZ recently spotted YG and asked the Blood-affiliated rapper if he thinks it's a good idea for Cardi to come to Cali before this all dies down. "The homegirl straight," says YG. "She get love. She gets love from me, know what I'm saying."

It appears Cardi has even addresses the threats behind the scenes. Responding to an alleged Crip member who pressed her about the matter on Instagram, the Bronx rapper responded, “Where you got me wrong is ALWAYS BEEN IN THE STREETS. I'm militant i know my oath my nation like the back of my hands I came from the streets. I been banging shit since 16 NOT AFTER FAME OR BODAK.”

She doesn't appear to be backing down. "I'm new to the world. I'm not new in the Bronx or in NY," she added. "Nikkas want to make it a big deal cause I'm CARDI. NY is mix with bloods and crips and i deff know crips in the Pjs I came home that park shit. We say these type of words all the time all of a sudden the world is mad. Now my thing is how was nikkas that soo call claim they ‘GANGSTA’ telling me they next move? That’s how i figure it’s for clout! Cause a real gangsta do shit in silence. I will never let nobody extort me. I rather drop my flag that’s against my law. I might as well get Kill. I rather get kill and i will never let nobody put fear in my heart.”
