In a new interview the group did with Highsnobiety, Offset described how he doesn’t let the fame get to him, especially when people tell him he’s the biggest Migo.
“I feel like a lot of group’s failures was about the power and the fame and not being strong-minded,” he said. “If someone tells you you’re better than the others, you’re the one, you’re bigger than everybody. And you carry yourself that way after being told that, you’re a weak-minded person. People tell me all the time, ‘You’re married to Cardi B. You’re the real star.’ I shut that down immediately. And it kills them so much, and I can see the darkness in their face. By even telling me I’m the star, you’re killing my memories. Period.”
He later touched on his relationship with Cardi and her accomplishments as a rapper. “My wife’s success is one of the biggest things I’ve ever been a part of. She didn’t feel like she had it at one point. The world didn’t think she could rap. But I can tell when somebody is going to last, and when I met her, I was already wanting to know her before I ever even heard a song by her. That’s why she fucks with me and why our shit is so genuine. I did done some fucked up shit, but she knows that I fucked with her before I even knew she rapped. I knew she was a lost soul that was a superstar.”
It also seems Offset’s home has a lot of unwanted visitors. Ever since the internet found out he lives in Buckhead—a neighborhood in Atlanta—he’s found “weirdos” in his backyard. He added, “I’m building a fort right now with an 18-foot wall, all around the house, then I’m going to build a 20-foot wall behind that. In between is where my dogs are going to be at. I got these pit bulls that I’ve been having since I was 23—Bentley, Boujee, Fat Mama, and Bando. They love me, but they’re not friendly to nobody. So if you find a way to jump my gate, as soon as you get over, it’s the pits.”
Migos is gearing up to drop their forthcoming album Culture III, though a release date is not yet available. In February, the trio released the single and video for “GNF,” featuring Travis Scott and Young Thug.
