Migos is a hip-hop group that was started by Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff in 2008. At first, they were called the Polo Club. After putting out their first mixtape, “Juug Season,” in 2011, their first big hit, “Versace,” came out in 2013. Then, in 2015, Migos put out their first studio album, “Yung Rich Nation.” It got to number three on the US Rap chart, number five on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and number seventeen on the US Billboard 200 chart. In 2017, their song “Bad and Boujee,” which featured Lil Uzi Vert, was their next big hit. The song became an Internet sensation. In particular, the words “rain drop, drop top” by Offset were used in a lot of memes. Migos’ second studio album, “Culture,” came out in 2017. It debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart and was given a platinum rating by the RIAA. In 2018, they made another album called “Culture II” to follow this one.
In 2017, Offset released an album with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin called “Without Warning.” This was in addition to his work with Migos. The album’s best spot on the US Billboard 200 chart was No. 4. Travis Scott and Quavo are among the artists who are on it. Offset’s first album by himself, called “Father of 4,” came out in February 2019. Motown and Quality Control Music put it out, and artists like J. Cole, Cardi B, Big Rube, Gunna, CeeLo Green, and Gucci Mane are on it. “Father of 4” opened at No. 4 on the US Billboard 200, and both critics and the public liked it a lot. He is the last member of Migos to put out a solo album. In 2018, Quavo and Takeoff both put out their first solo albums.
In addition to making music, Offset has been in ads for fashion brands and designers like Gosha Rubchinskiy, Bryce Barnes, and Lavati. In 2016, he was in an episode of the TV show “Atlanta” with the other members of the group Migos. In 2020, he started a new show called “SKRRT with Offset” with Quibi. The show follows him as he drives around in fancy, expensive cars with other famous people.
Offset became a new investor in the esports team FaZe Clan in August 2019, but the nature and amount of the investment were not made public. Since then, he has been in two FaZe Clan YouTube videos.
Personal Life and Legal Issues
In 2017, Offset began dating Cardi B, who is also an American rapper. They got married in secret in Georgia in September 2017, but they don’t tell anyone. Their wedding date wasn’t made public until June 2018, when celebrity gossip site TMZ found their wedding certificate. Even though Offset was already married, he asked Cardi to marry him during a live show in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on October 27, 2017. Cardi told the world in April 2018 during an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” that she and Offset were going to have their first child together. On July 10, 2018, their daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, was born. Offset has a daughter named Kalea and two sons named Jordan and Kody from previous relationships. Offset and Cardi’s relationship has been up and down because of rumors that Offset cheated on her.
Offset has been in trouble with the law before, and he has been found guilty of burglary and theft. In 2013, he went to DeKalb County Jail, Georgia, because he broke the rules of his probation for those crimes. Then, in 2015, Offset was arrested at a Migos concert at Georgia Southern University with Quavo and Takeoff. He was charged with having a Schedule II drug that wasn’t specified, having marijuana, having a gun in a school safety zone, and having a gun while committing a crime. Then, while Offset was still in jail, he was charged with battery and starting a riot in prison because he had attacked another inmate. He was released in December 2015 after spending eight months in jail. He had taken an Alford plea deal, which meant that the gun, drug, and gang-related charges against him would be dropped in exchange for him pleading guilty to inciting a riot, paying a $1,000 fine, and serving five years of probation. As part of his plea deal, he also agreed to leave the Georgia counties of Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins, and Screven.
In December 2019, it came out that Cardi B and Offset had spent $5.5 million on a house outside of Atlanta. The 22,000-square-foot house has 5 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms and sits on just under six acres. The house was on the market for $10 million in 2017. Watch this video to see the property:
Between September 2017 and September 2018, Migos earned a combined $25 million. It’s presumable that Offset’s cut of those gross earnings was around $8 million. That number was produced thanks largely to a grueling tour schedule that saw the group perform 93 shows in a 12 month period. They are also one of the most popular streaming acts on the planet with 4 billion streams in the same time period. Between September 2018 and September 2019, they earned $36 million.
On September 15, 2020, Cardi B asked Offset to end their marriage. Cardi asked for primary physical custody of their daughter Kulture, child support, and an equal split of their assets in the divorce papers. It seems there was no prenuptial agreement. At the time they filed, they had already split up.
