Offset Says That Hip-Hop Heads Should Be Kissing The Migos’ Feet For Bringing Hip-Hop Mainstream — Gets Bashed By Lupe Fiasco!

Offset is making his rounds to promote his new album ‘Father of Four.’ After catching the attention of his baby mama for a comment made about the paternity of his daughter, the 27-year-old is ticking off some of the veterans of popular rap with his latest interview.

Offset chatted with Ebro of ‘Ebro in the Morning’ on Hot 97 about the hate that younger artists receive from the older generation. Although some of the most popular rap songs seem to be a poppin’ beat masking misogynistic and drug-filled references, the genre is the number one type of music listened to in this new age.

If you ask Offset, instead of hating, the hip-hop heads need to be thanking the new wave rappers for making it so mainstream.

“If you’re an older artist, you should be thanking us, kissing our feet. Not just the Migos… Hip-hop has never been the No. 1 genre ever. Right now when you go to Spotify, you’re not seeing the other genres [like] pop, country.”

The disconnect…The Reconnect. Firstly let me say that I’m a huge fan of the Migos (specifically Emitt Smith & Fight Night. Also when I go to the club I only really get up and dance dance my little dance to Migos. True story) Secondly let me say that the only visceral problem with brother offsets statement is the use of the cliche “kissing feet”. That’s not a sign of respect that’s an act of subjugation of something lower to something higher and as Busta Rhymes told me when it comes to rap there are no classes, or superiors vs inferiors. We are all a team. Each with individual attributes that add their special skill set and energy to the whole. The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hiphop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and selling records is only a part of the project that is hip hop. It’s a great feeling and milestone to sell a million records and be celebrated for that achievement. But it is just as great to be an amazing lyricist respected by thousands or just 1 for your abilities to craft amazing pieces of communication that can operate to influence society as a whole not just exclusively on a dance floor. Hip hop got its RESPECT from rappers who spoke truth to power and struck fear in the comfort zones of oppression and inspired folks to take a look at their surroundings, analyze and OVERCOME. Hip Hop isn’t respected because of how many records it has sold or how many dances it has created UNLESS WE TALM BOUT BREAKDANCING. Hip Hop is respected because it’s kisses nobodies feet. And never will. Our feet don’t belong on the mouths of our pioneers they belong on their shoulders. . . . The true rapper is the one who continues to do it when it’s no money, no fame, no cars, no jewelry…just the love of the craft that keeps them on that grind. That’s the bar. Everything else other than that is just filler and cap.

The ‘Taste’ musician added: “Because of how streams is, people are listening to hip-hop more than any other time. So you should salute us, we made this bigger than it ever was. You fought for it, you set the tone, your style is just different.”

The problem that hip-hop veterans have with today’s popular songs is that you don’t necessarily have to have talent in order to have a successful career. With the right trendy look and a producer who can make a trap beat — almost anyone can be a rapper.

Additionally, many feel that the songs don’t have meaning the way that they used to. Lyricism is not as appreciated as it once was.

Lupe Fiasco shared his opinion on Offset’s recent remarks via Instagram in a lengthy caption that read, in part: “The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hip-hop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and selling records is only a part of the project that is hip hop. It’s a great feeling and milestone to sell a million records and be celebrated for that achievement.”

What do you think about what Offset said? Is he being cocky or does he have a point?

OMG! Cardi B Licks Offset on Grammys Red Carpet: Pic

The PDA is real! Cardi B‘s fanned-out vintage Mugler dress wasn’t the only thing to draw attention on the 2019 Grammys red carpet on Sunday, February 10.

That’s because her estranged husband, Offset, arrived at the event alongside the “I Like it” singer, 26. On their way in, the couple talked, posed for pics and even licked each other. Cardi grabbed the Migos rapper, 27, by the chin and stuck her tongue out, and he returned the favor.

This comes two weeks after the Grammy-nominee admitted that she and Offset weren’t over. “We’re working things out, baby,” she told press after a January 31 court appearance.

After welcoming their daughter, Kulture, in December 2018, the pair called it quits in December 2018. Cardi announced their breakup on Instagram.

“So everybody been bugging me and everything and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now,” the “I Like it” singer said at the time. “And we are really good friends and we are really good business partners — you know, he’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.”

She added: “It’s nobody fault. I guess we grew out of love but we are not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”

Back On? Cardi B and Offset Reunite on a Jet Ski in Puerto Rico

Back on? Cardi B and Offset were spotted together in Puerto Rico on Friday, December 21, two weeks after she announced their split.

TMZ published photos of the “Money” rapper, 26, and the Migos member, 27, riding a jet ski during a pre-holiday vacation. Eyewitnesses told the website that the estranged couple seemed cozy as they enjoyed a sunny day with friends.

Cardi, who is scheduled to perform in San Juan at the Electric Holiday festival on Friday night, was all smiles as she wrapped her arms around Offset, who drove the jet ski through the water.

The former stripper revealed on December 4 that she called it quits with the “Bad and Boujee” rapper just 14 months after they secretly married in the bedroom of their Atlanta home.

“We got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time,” she said in a since-deleted Instagram video. “It’s nobody’s fault. I guess we grew out of love.”

A source later told Us Weekly exclusively that Cardi was “not considering getting back with Offset,” while a second insider revealed that the breakup was “really bothering” the Georgia native.

Offset surprised Cardi on stage during her Rolling Loud Festival performance on December 15 with a floral arrangement that spelled out, “Take Me Back Cardi.” He was criticized on social media for the grand gesture, but his estranged wife was quick to defend him during an Instagram Live session.

“Violating my baby father isn’t going to make me feel any better, because at the end of the day, that’s still family,” she said, referencing the pair’s 5-month-old daughter, Kulture.

More recently, a source told Us, “Cardi and Offset will spend Christmas together … for their daughter.”

Azealia Banks Slams Offset For Cardi B Ambush And 21 Savage Supports Him During A Concert And Gets The Crowd To Sing ‘Cardi, Take Offset Back’

It was recently reported that Offset managed to embarrass Cardi even more during one of her concerts. The man showed up on stage during one of her shows to beg her once again to take him back.

People understood that he had the best intentions, but Cardi was not impressed at all, and it’s quite understandable.

After doing this, Offset posted a message on social media in which he was saying that he felt like a public apology was necessary after his cheating became a public matter as well.

This message did not impress fans at all, and they slammed him saying that he is only sorry because he got caught.

More celebrities got themselves involved in the drama and supported Cardi B or Offset. For instance, Azealia Banks also chose to speak on the recent events surrounding Cardi B, and Offset.

‘I think it’s messed up that men think it’s okay to desecrate her workspace with their opinions of what she should be doing. No clue why think it’s okay to just barge in on women when they feel like it,’ she posted on Instagram.

She continued and wrote that ‘If it were the other way around they would be bashing the woman saying she’s no good, calling her a hoe, etc. etc…but since it’s the man they expect it to be accepted as part of his hip-hop persona and everyone will rush to defend them.’

Another rapper, 21 Savage seems to be ‘team Offset’ because he got the crowd to ask Cardi to take her hubby back during a concert.

21 Savage got everyone chanting, ‘Cardi B, Take Offset Back!’

What do you think Cardi should do?

Watch: Tank Says Offset Needs to Keep Showing the World He Wants Cardi B Back [Video]

If you ask Tank, Offset needs to tell everyone he can that he wants Cardi B back.

via TMZ:

We got the rapper Saturday night in the ATL, at the State Farm Arena for the V-103 Winterfest when he threw down his game plan for Offset … shout out to the world that you want your wife back. “Be Loud, be apologetic with everything you do until you get your wife back,” he says.

Tank doesn’t know if his plan will work, but that leads him into a super interesting view of human nature.  He’s not buying the whole, give-him-a-second-chance thing, because Tank thinks humans are so flawed — so imperfect — that sometimes people should get 4th and 5th chances.

Sounds like Offset is heeding his advice.
