Offset, a member of the rap trio the Migos, posted over the weekend about meeting up with his estranged father after more than two decades.
“DREAMS DO COME TRUE HAVENT SEEN MY FATHER IN 23 YEARS !!!!!! AND I STILL LOVE HIM,” the Atlanta native captioned an Instagram video of him embracing his dad.
In February, Offset appeared on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club and said the last time he saw his dad was when he was 4 years old. He also revealed that he was open to reconciling after becoming a parent himself.
“I know how it be. You can either let the streets take you away or you can kick in with your family,” he told the radio show hosts. “A lot of folks, the streets took them away from their momma, their grandmomma, their everything. So I’ve just been on the other side, too. I’ve been a father that was locked up, trippin, not really focused on life goals, not really focusing on taking care of the kids.”
The Grammy-nominated rapper is a proud father and even titled his solo debut album Father of 4.
“THE PAST IS THE PAST AND THE PRESENT IS ALL WE HAVE TO RELY ON WE NOT PERFECT IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM I LOVE YOU POPS !!! NO MATTER WHAT!!!!” Offset wrote in conclusion under the touching video.
