The Usual Intro
Kiari Kendrell Cephus, also known as Offset, is a professional rapper, singer, and songwriter. He is popularly known for being a part of the illustrious trio group “Migos” and as the husband of Cardi B.
Offset became prominent in the industry when he released the album “Without Warning” in collaboration with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin. He released his second album, “Father of 4,” which was praised by the critics.
Before the Spotlight
Kiari Kendrell Cephus was born on December 14, 1991. His father left him at a young age. He grew up with his aunt and two bandmates, Quavious and Kirshnik, in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
Offset and his bandmates listened to artists such as Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, and Master P while growing up. Cephus decided to recruit them and make a band called “Migos” in 2008. Quavious became “Quavo,” Kirshnik became “Takeoff,” and Cephus became “Offset.” The trio had no idea that what they made would become one of the leading and prominent rap groups in the near future.
The Journey to Success
After four years of being together, Offset released his first song with the Migos called “Bando.” The song was recognized by Zaytoven, which gave them confidence and motivated the trio to make more songs. The following year, they released their hit single “Versace,” which changed their lives forever, featuring Drake as the cherry on top. The critics loved the song and it charted at No. 99 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2015, the trio was arrested due to possession of a firearm. Quavo and Takeoff were released on bail. However, Offset was imprisoned for almost eight months due to inciting a riot and attacking an inmate. While Offset was in prison, Quavo and Takeoff dropped their debut album “Young Rich Nation.”
In 2017, the trio again delivered a hit single, “Bad and Boujee.” The song was a massive success as it peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. According to reports, the song was directed by Offset. The trio released three more albums; Culture, Culture II, and Culture III.
In addition to releasing songs with Migos, Offset has released numerous solo songs as well. In 2017, he and Drake were featured in a song by Metro Boomin, “No Complaints,” which ranked at No. 71 on Billboard Hot 100. He also released his debut album “Without Warning” in collaboration with Metro Boomin and 21 Savage. The album was listed at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200.
In his latest album, “Father of 4,” he opened up about the hardships he endured during his childhood. The album’s leading song, “Clout,” featuring his wife Cardi B, bagged the No. 39 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
