Things changed for Offset when Drake hopped on The Migos hit single "Versace."
While on the Call Her Daddy podcast, Offset recalls the moment he realized his life was about to change. “See, so I was incarcerated when my song [‘Versace’] popped, and then Drake got on my song,” he explained. “I was in a jail cell one day, right? And they doin’ count, like at 6 in the morning, and I’m up and [the guard is] singing my song as he do count.”
“So the whole time I’m in there, I’m not telling people what’s going on ’cause I really don’t know what’s really going on,” he continued. “I just know we was in, like, a motion but I’m in jail, my mind’s everywhere, I’m in a bad space. And the guard doing the count and he singing, ‘Versace, Versace, Versace.’ And as he walked off, he’s singing the song. I’m like, ‘Yo, what the f*ck?’”
Offset continued, “soon as we got out, I get on the phone, call them back home, like, ‘Yo.’ They like ‘Yeah, Drake on it.’ I’m like, ‘What?!’ ... The homies like, ‘Yeah [‘Versace’ is] on the radio.’ But I’m not knowing—I’m thinking they got it played on the radio once or twice, real quick or something. And then it’s, like, nah.”
“I had to sit down for, like, four more months as that went on,” he said. “I had a visitation thing—I’m married now, y’all, so it’s not nothing crazy, this is before my wife. You can have six visits in one day, 30 minutes apiece, and I had, like my mom on there, and I had some girls I was dealing with, but they weren’t coming.”
He goes on to say that although his mom was visiting every week, he wasn't getting that many visitors. “But then all of sudden, they like, ‘You got six visits.’ I’m like, ‘I got six visits?’” he recalled. “I’m tryin’ to think. … Back-to-back. ... That's when I was like, ‘Oh sh*t, this sh*t is crazy.’ That was my first taste of it."
