Popular rapper Offset recently opened up about his perspective on dealing with threats and the law during an interview on “The Breakfast Club”. The conversation delved into a recent incident involving Kenneth Petty, Nicki Minaj’s husband, and threats made against Offset. The rapper revealed that despite the tense situation, he had no intentions of contacting the police, and he distanced himself from any involvement in the legal repercussions that followed.
Last month, the internet was abuzz when footage circulated showing Kenneth Petty and his associates outside a hotel, where they believed Offset was staying. In the video, the men were seen giving passionate warnings to the Migos rapper. This apparent confrontation reportedly originated from an incident that occurred at the MTV Video Music Awards the week before.
The threats made by Kenneth Petty, which were widely shared online, eventually led to him being placed on house arrest for 120 days due to probation violations. While many speculated that Offset had played a role in reporting the threats to the authorities, the rapper used his interview as an opportunity to clarify his position.
When asked whether the police had reached out to him to discuss the threats and potential charges, Offset expressed his reluctance to engage with law enforcement in such matters: “Hell naw. Police ain’t never calling me. I ain’t got no number for ya…I would never do no lame-ss sht like that. I’d rather keep it in the street than do some sht like that. All that sht a joke. Grown-ss man doing sht like that…I just laugh at sh*t like that.”
Offset elaborated on his stance, emphasizing his age and desire to avoid online conflicts: “I’m 30 years old. You know how long it took me to get away from that – that bllsht online?” He also touched on the ongoing feud between his wife, Cardi B, and Nicki Minaj, highlighting his decision to stay out of it: “I always say this, I don’t ever get in that ‘cause I’m a man. So the man should stay the f*ck away…whatever is going on – I don’t get in that…’cause I’m a man. I’m not getting in that business”.
Throughout the interview, Offset also promoted his new album, “Set It Off,” scheduled for release on October 13, revealing a mature and reflective approach to his career and personal life.
