In the lead-up to the release of his album “Set It Off,” Offset had tantalizingly teased a Playboi Carti feature that, to the disappointment of many fans, was conspicuously absent from the final project. In a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, Offset opened up about the missing verse and shed some light on the situation.
During the interview, radio host Charlamagne directly addressed the rumors surrounding Carti’s failure to clear his verse for the album. Offset candidly acknowledged the veracity of these rumors and proceeded to share his perspective on the situation. His tone was one of understanding and reconciliation, reflecting his commitment to maintaining good relationships within the industry.
Offset began by acknowledging the situation, saying, “Shout out to my boy, man. Because I don’t get into it wit n***as about music. Sometimes people be going through they own – you know what I’m saying? Shout out to bro though, man. He shoulda cleared that muthafuckin’ smash, though. I ain’t gon’ cap. But it be like that. I don’t get mad at folks for nothing like that because sometimes people be going through their own little sh*t or they might not want – I don’t know. It’s all love, though. That’s my little bro. No matter what.”
Charlamagne then probed whether, in such cases, Offset reaches out directly to the artist when he’s informed that their verse didn’t clear.
Offset explained his approach, saying, “You gotta know your boys,” he replied. “You gotta know your homie. That’s why I don’t get into it with my homies because I know how my homies is and sh*t like that. So I ain’t even really hit him on that like that. I’m like, trying to move forward. It’s cool. I got some sh*t at the end of the day. He the dog, he the bro.”
He concluded by expressing his continued support and love for Carti, emphasizing the importance of their bond. Offset recognized that artists, including Carti, go through their own personal challenges, and that doesn’t diminish their connection. He left the door open for future collaborations, stating, “So love to him, man. No love lost. He be going through sh*t too though. He’s my little brother, I talk to him on some other sh*t so sometimes he go through shit so it ain’t no love lost. Maybe on the next one.”
