Offset of the Migos released his solo album Father of 4 Friday, Feb.22. His LP features his wife Cardi B, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, J.Cole, Gucci Mane, Quavo, and many more. After Cardi B won Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy at the 2019 Grammys, Offset teased the album for fans releasing footage of Cardi B giving birth to their daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus who also appears on the cover of the album.
Father of 4 was supposed to be released Friday, Dec.14, but was postponed without an explanation. The project consists of 16 tracks with the MC addressing his brief separation from his wife in December on the record “Don’t Lose Me.” “Coolin’ on the boat, in the ‘yo/I really miss her/Demons in my soul got issues,” he raps.
The MC also released behind-the-scenes footage of him and his four children: Jordan, Kody, Kalea, and Kulture Cephus taking the cover art photo for Father of 4.

Offset is the last Migos member to release his solo project to the masses behind Takeoff’s The Last Rocket and Quavo’s Quavo Huncho. The trio dropped their last group album in 2018 with Culture II. In an interview with Esquire, Offset expressed that he cried while creating Father of 4.
“I cried to myself while I was doing this album ’cause I was talking about my story and my kids,” he said. “When I did a song, I started getting memories of my grandma, my struggles, my partner that was killed, the thoughts I had while I was incarcerated, and my kids’ faces were there in my head. I love my kids; this is who I do it for.”
