Now that Quavo and Takeoff have released their solo projects (Quavho Huncho and The Last Rocket, respectively), it’s Offset‘s turn to show the world what he can offer. And on December 14th, he’s doing just that with the release of his yet-to-be-titled (publicly, at least) solo debut.
Speaking to Billboard, the Migo offered a few details about what to expect on the “feature-free” release.
“I’m talking about relevant situations that have occurred over the last 18 or 24 months, like me being in the crash, my kids, my family time and me being married,” Offset says. “There’s different parts of my life. The ups and downs of being in music, the feeling of people doubting me and being the underdog to becoming the big dog.”
“I’m not really talking too much about Pateks and Lambos because it’s not relatable,” he continued. “That’s almost like bubblegum rap now, how the people are accepting it. They just get two days of playing it, then it’s over with. This can last and people can feel it.”
Those looking for a cohesive body of work, can look elsewhere, though. According to Offset, he considers the project a playlist—not an album. Or something.
“I’m really pushing my album to be a playlist and not an album, because a playlist is consistently being played for moves, exercises, and different things,” he says. “With Spotify and all the streaming services, it’s all about who got the biggest playlist. So I was focused on making my album like a playlist. The format of what an album is in the books, isn’t what’s going on in 2019.
“When I say I want a playlist vibe, I’m still giving you content with the songs—real shit that’s going on. It’s an album of what I’ve been going through here and there and what got me to this point.”
