Offset has a lot of thoughts about how he’s portrayed in the media.
He raps about blogs being “after” him on the song “North Star.”
“I’m 27, I’m a young guy, we done stepped into some things we didn’t really know too much about,” he told the men’s magazine. “We love each other and everything, but it’s like, we was going through a separation—both of us are artists on top too—so when certain blogs would lie or say something that wasn’t true, I would still become the bad guy somehow. I don’t get why it can’t just be: I f–ked up, I made my say, and we moved past that sh-t.”
Offset and Cardi B did go through a period of separation at the end of 2018. He says he never cheated on Cardi B, but thought about it.
He says the incessant chatter about the matter may have caused more harm than good – ultimately creating “insecurities” in his home.
“That’s my family going through it,” he explained. “Blogs are doing it for the views and comments. Blogs be knowing when it’s bullsh-t, and when it’s true sh-t. Just keeping it all the way 1000. When it be bulls–t, they still run with it as if it’s true s–t.”
Offset, who is the proud father of four kids, says it’s a must he keeps his family close in the public eye. “I’m growing as a man, I’m educating myself,” he added. “The blogs just trying to be shooting n—-s down all day, bro.”
As for the negative speculation that comes with the spotlight, Offset advises “Keep that to yourself. I can’t go in your living room and tell you how your step daddy is f–ked up because he did this or that. I would never do that. So that song is just a personal song. I gotta be strong through stuff, because I’m the man, I got to hold my family up, even if they slip up or trip because of me.”
