Cardi B will never have to pay for chips and guac from Chipotle again! The “Bodak Yellow” singer received a special gift from the fast food chain in the form of a briefcase filled to the brim with free vouchers for the popular menu item.
The rapper, 25, shared a shot of the briefcase in her Instagram Story on Thursday, July 19, and given her use of “OMG” and the shocked smiley face emoji, seemed genuinely surprised by the unexpected gift.
Quinn Kelsey, Chipotle’s PR and communications manager, tells Us Weekly the present was a response to Cardi’s rap in the Jennifer Lopez song “Dinero,” in which the Love & Hip Hop: New York alum freestyles about wanting “chips, guac and queso.”
“We love surprising and delighting our fans, famous or not famous, when we see the right opportunity to make their day in a genuine way,” Kelsey explains. “So, when we heard Cardi B’s lyrics in the song ‘Dinero’ about just wanting that chips, guac and queso, it obviously resonated with us.”
And while the song, which also features DJ Khaled, is about money, there’s a playful tie-in to guacamole as well. “We also think that guac is the best kind of green around, so we thought it would be fun to fill a Pelican case with free chips and guac cards to set her up for a very, very long time,” Kelsey tells Us.

Given that Cardi is the first female rapper to attain multiple number-one songs on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, she certainly doesn’t need any freebies, but Kelsey says the gift was “all in good fun,” adding that Chipotle also does its part to support various charities. In fact, the popular chain gave back $20 million in 2017 to community organizations nationwide through its fundraising program.
Believe it or not, the Chipotle gift is just the latest surprise Cardi B has received from a restaurant chain. On July 19, the new mom, who has been busy bonding with her newborn daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, was one of the lucky celebs who was given some “lit” and free ’90s McDonald’s swag in honor of McDelivery Day.
