After delaying work on his sophomore solo LP following the tragic death of his cousin Takeoff, Offset recently revealed he’s back in “album mode.” Moreover, the former Migos member took to his Instagram Story to let fans know he’s hard at work on his next release. In fact, he had quite the busy weekend, as he attended Vanity Fair‘s post-Oscars party with his wife, Cardi B. At that gathering, he wore a jewel-covered face mask reminiscent of Kanye West’s Yeezus era. If that’s a sign, it looks like the Atlanta icon will either bring us his foray into industrial hip-hop or simply a new, unexpected turn in his career.
Furthermore, he recently released the track “2 LIVE” with Hit-Boy, which could be a pretty remarkable partnership. Unfortunately, though, the tragic loss of fellow Migo Takeoff brought a rift into some of Offset’s other relationships. For example, his battles and back-and-forths with J. Prince since Take’s passing became a morbid spectacle online. Not only are these two men in grieving, but both are already antagonized in this situation and chose to take things further in that direction. However, he did clear up some fake news that Prince was arrested for threatening him, which was not true at all.
Offset’s In “Album Mode”
Meanwhile, the rapper recently attended an NBA game, the same one that Quavo went to, and sat separately. Moreover, that’s another relationship that was apparently strained long before tragedy struck the trap group pioneers. Still, many hoped that in its aftermath, they could heal in the face of something much more tragic and pressing. With no luck, it seems the two still have their conflicts, which hopefully can mull over soon for both.
Despite these obstacles, Offset remains an important and impactful figure in the rap world. Recently, the Atlanta-Fulton Foundation gifted him the Legacy in Hip-Hop award from the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus. “Recognizing the many contributions you make to not only music but most importantly our community,” they wrote on Instagram. “Continue to give of yourself for betterment of the community.” Considering that, check back in with HNHH for the latest news and updates on Offset.
