The Migos rapper, who recently released his first solo album “Father of 4,” sat down with Real 92.3’s Big Boy TV to talk about his new music and other topics, including his thoughts on 6ix9ine’s imprisonment. In the interview, Offset opened up about his own experiences behind bars, explained the struggle of the streets, and discussed how important it is for the Brooklyn rapper to take responsibility for his actions.
“My OGs use to tell me, you get in that water you better know how to swim,” Offset said. “At the end of the day, he’s a grown man. There are rules and codes.” He went on, “You choose the streets, and you go left on the streets, your safety is a problem now because you chose the streets,” Offset continued. “Just know what you’re doing.”
Recent reports revealed Tekashi6 decision to cooperate with the FBI, after entering a plea deal to receive fewer years in prison. With the deal, the “Stoopid” rapper would be handing over information about the various crimes he committed with his Nine Trey Blood Gang members. “I’ve been arrested a lot of times, 13 or something like that,” he added. “You got to take responsibility. You gotta take it in the chest. I blame me for all that happened to me. I can’t put the blame in other directions.”
Offset added that 6ix9ine’s rise and fall was also due to the fact that the 22-year-old not having the right people around him to guide him away from bad behavior, as he credited his “day ones” and Quality Control Music co-founder Pierre “Pee” Thomas for helping him turn his life around. The 27-year-old said he’s thankful his inner circle wasn’t afraid to tell him “he’s lame” if he did something wrong on social media.
