Offset Says Cardi B Changed His Life
In a recently released cover interview with Variety, Offset reflected on his six-year marriage to Cardi B. The Migos rapper said their relationship helped him stop his lean addiction, which he’d battled for years. Lean combines codeine, soda, promethazine, cough syrup, and candy.
He said, “I put down lean. I was drinking my whole career. It opened my mind, but I never thought it helped me create. I feel like getting past that, cleaning up, and putting that message out.”
Offset said Cardi is his “bestie,” whom he knows has always “got my back, right or wrong.” He said that as a couple, they work to improve each other. The rapper added, “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 wins.”
Offset said he and Cardi have formed a “great team” and can be considered a “powerhouse at this point — icon status.” The “Clout” rapper added that because they believe in God and family, they’re “always going to keep winning.”
