Offset reveals it is too ‘hard’ for him to discuss the death of his Migos bandmate Takeoff as he adds wife Cardi B is his ‘bestie’ in wide-ranging interview

Rapper Offset graces the cover of this week’s Variety and he dives deep into the things occupying his mind these days.

Of his Migos bandmate and first cousin once removed Takeoff’s death, he admitted: ‘It’s hard for me to talk about sh*t right now. I’ve never talked about this stuff. Seriously. Talking about Take is hard, man.

‘That’s why I don’t, to be honest. That sh*t hurts. Like, it’s gonna put me in a mood, and I don’t want to get in that mood,’ he explained.

‘Some things I don’t never tell nobody. He’s not here. That sh*t feels fake, bro,’ he said. ‘I get through my day thinking it’s fake. And I don’t say nothing to nobody about it.’

Takeoff died on November 1 after being shot multiple times in the head and torso outside of 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston, Texas.


He also talked about strong women and how his wife Cardi B is his ‘bestie.’

The Ghostface Killers rapper, 31, also talked to the outlet about impact strong women – including his mom who raised him without his father – have had in his life.

‘I just feel like the aesthetics of a female is different from a male,’ he explained. ‘A female can take you somewhere you might can’t take yourself.

‘You always need that guidance, like from that mother or that grandmother. That’s my key to my push and my drive. Strong women are going to put you in strong places.’


Speaking of strong women, the Shoot My Shot singer also dished on his wife of almost six years, rapper Cardi B, 30.

The couple’s first date was at the 2017 Super Bowl and they married in September of the same year.

They welcomed their daughter, Kulture, in 2018 and their son Wave, in 2021. The Wap singer is also step-mother to Offset’s three other children, Jordan, 12, and Kalea and Kody, eight.

‘My bestie!’ he gushed about his wife. ‘She always got my back, right or wrong. We both are on the same mission to make each other better.’

‘Social is her strong point, so I listen to her social advice. And me, it’s the music, but I play behind the scenes; it’s my wife so I want to make sure she win,’ he added.

‘We are a great team,’ he continues. ‘We’re a powerhouse at this point — icon status. We believe in God. We believe in family. We’re always going to keep winning.’

And the feeling is mutual, with the Bodak Yellow singer telling Variety: ‘What I appreciate about my husband, is that no matter what issue I am having personally or professionally, I know he will take care of me and our family.

She added: ‘It’s handled. I know that I have a man who has my back for real. I fully support him in this next chapter of his music career.’
