Offset Explains “Pressure” He Feels From Cardi B’s Success, Accepts Her Rap Challenge

Published: Friday 30th Nov 2018 by Rashad

As if the pressure of meeting or beating the critical and commercial acclaim that accompanied the respective solo efforts of his Migos brothers (Takeoff and Quavo) isn’t enough, Offset – ahead of his solo debut album’s December 14th release – says the mega-success of wife Cardi B only adds to it.

Hitting the promo trail in anticipation of its arrival, the 26-year-old took to NY Times to discuss how being married to music’s “it girl” has been a challenge and an inspiration.

His words inside:

“She brings excitement and pressure to me, but I like that,” Offset told NYTcorrespondent Joe Coscarelli for his op-ed titled, “Emerging From Migos as His Own Man.” “She’s No. 1, so every time I’m hitting the charts, I’ve got to be Top 10.”

“(Settling down) helps me make the music, which helps my career,” Offset said. “I have no distractions. And me and her? We haven’t even dropped an album yet. That’s a whole other realm.” 

The word “yet” certainly set off alarms that the Migos star has plans on releasing a joint effort with his chart-topping wife.  If he does, that’ll have to come in the next 10 years as he told Coscarelli he plans to “hang it up” by the end of the next decade.

“I have a wife and a child — that changed my whole everything,” he continued. “I was a young hothead, but now I understand the value of life.” [source]


But, before he heads to chart battle by his lonesome on December 14th, Offset is set to duke it out with his wife in a rap battle. Days after she issued the challenge seen below:

    I actually think his album might be the hottest of the 3.

  3. Ughhh November 30, 2018

    Homophobic and ugly. Migos’ music lacks any substance or actual value. If his album is anything like the last two. He can keep it

    He will never achieve half of the solo success cardi has.

    • Rasputia Latimore Is ANNOYED by GUTTER TRASH F.AGGOT ‘JasMAN Da Bi Asian’ Talking to her every day! November 30, 2018

      Both of them lack serious rap skills. Where is the new Lauryn Hill at?…who is young, sexxy, a poet, rapper, and singer? I think my girl Amanda Diva fits the bill but now she is too old (after years of the industry overlooking her). That is the real question. I could give a sh|t about new Offset or Migos music. I like Cardi’s personality but….she will be better over time once she fine tunes her “rap” skills. I bought her single I Like It Like That and I would have bought Bodak Yellow but I already had that song on my playlist LONG before it blew up because lil mamma caught my attention during her mixtape days with Wash Poppin. Cardi is the new Ms. Trina without all the asss. Cardi is less attractive as Trina was at her age though. Trina is a natural beauty who just aged out like all the other older female rappers. Her loyal fans will ride with her though because she always releases new music every year for them to ride out to.
