Offset revealed that Pharrell was the one that convinced him to join Quavo for the Takeoff tribute at the 2023 BET Awards.
“I was in Paris doing Fashion Week, and they called. I wasn’t sure at the time ‘cause I was running away from the reality, and I had talked to Pharrell. We was sitting at the show, and I was telling him, like, ‘Man, I don’t know if I should do it because it just ain’t gon’ be right, and I’m scared it’s gon’ put me back in that moment,’” Offset explained in a recent interview.
The "JEALOUSY" hitmaker continued, “[Pharrell] was like, ‘Nah, you gotta do that for the world and for him, and y’all legacy. Y’all the biggest group in hip hop.’” When he was asked if the performance offered him some closure, Offset replied, “It was, I swear it was… After we did it, I did feel good about it, like, close the chapter [in] the right way, [in] a big way. Unity, love, and giving to the people.”
Offset will be releasing his second solo album, SET IT OFF, tomorrow (Oct. 13). He also joined "Ebro in the Morning." Watch the full interview below.
