Offset Recreates Wild James Brown Interview, References Cardi B Drama in New Promo f/ Jamie Lee Curtis

The former Migos member plans on releasing new music in a few days, as revealed in a Jamie Lee Curtis-assisted video.

Y’all ready for some new music???….JEALOUSY!!

— OFFSET (@OffsetYRN) July 24, 2023

Offset teased the arrival of new music in a brief clip in which he recreated James Brown's infamous 1988 CNN interview (below), with Jamie Lee Curtis playing the role of reporter Sonya Friedman.

"Y’all ready for some new music???….JEALOUSY!!" the Migos alum wrote in the post up top.

"Your fans are saying that there's a lot of drama between you and your beautiful wife, Cardi B," Oscar-winner Curtis opens the clip. Offset—just as the Godfather of Soul did—belligerently and hilariously evades the question.

The video concludes with the announcement that Offset will drop new music on July 28.

Brown appeared on Sonya Live in April 1988 after he was released on bail. The arrest stemmed from the late singer allegedly striking his then-wife Adrienne Lois Rodriguez with a lead pipe and shooting at her car, according to Esquire.

When Friedman attempted to get answers from Brown, he displayed erratic behavior, leading many to believe he was high at the time of the interview. Brown seemingly tried to avoid questions regarding his ex-wife and suggested that the conversation switch over to the topic of new music, which is the excerpt Offset tapped into in the above video.

Offset deleted a post on his Instagram Stories last month claiming Cardi B cheated on him. She vehemently shot down those rumors, telling people to not pay attention to him. The two attended a Balenciaga show in Paris earlier this month and appeared to be in good spirits, and last night Cardi joined him onstage at Rolling Loud Miami to perform "MotorSport" and "Clout."

She also reposted his new video on her Instagram Stories, writing, "Lmaaaoooooooo....I can't wait!!!"

The James Brown interview has been recreated by Jordan Peele, as well.
