Offset has sat down with The New York Times for a wide ranging interview, in which the rapper discusses his family life, his car accident earlier this year, and his new child with wife Cardi B. All of that is interesting, and it’s a great read, but the real gem comes courtesy of the Migos member’s mother.
In the interview, it’s his mother that reveals that Offset was once a backup dancer for Whitney Houston. At the age of 10, Kiari Kendrell Cephus is seen dancing, suited up next to Whitney during the video for “Whatchulookinat.”

That young fly boy would grow up to be Offset, and he doesn’t shy away from performance past. He posted on Instagram a photo from the video shoot, saying “I been doing this entertainment, god my witness.”
Elsewhere Offset confirmed that the third and final solo Migos album would be arriving on December 14th, the same date as his 27th birthday. A lead single from the album was released briefly on Friday, but has been taken down.
