Migos member offset was arrested on July 20 in Atlanta, after being pulled over by police. The rapper- real name Kiari Cephus- was believed to be initially pulled over for changing lanes.
However, after a police search of his vehicle, Cephus was arrested, after the alleged discovery of at least one weapon in his vehicle, as well as a small quantity of marijuana.
TMZ has also reported that the rapper has now been charged with two felonies: Possession of a firearm by a felon, and possession of a weapon during a crime. He is also believed to have been charged with two misdemeanours in possession of marijuana, and an improper lane change.
This is not offset-or indeed any of Migos’- first run-ins with the law. Back in 2013, all three members of the trio were charged with carrying a loaded gun on school property at Georgia Southern University.
This arrest comes just ten days removed from the birth of Offset’s daughter Kulture, whom he had with his wife, and fellow breakout rap superstar Cardi B. The pair married in secret in October 2017, after footage emerged of Offset proposing to Cardi onstage.
Offset was released the day after arrest after posting the $17,000 bail. There is no news yet of when he is due to appear in court.
