Offset dropped a never-before-seen Instagram clip of Cardi B in labor during the Grammy’s and it is unquestionably epic. The Migos rapper publicly shared a preview for his upcoming debut album and documentary via Instagram of the profoundly intimate scene from the hospital delivery room when she gave birth to the pair’s daughter, Kulture.
Opportune fans were able to experience the anticipation and tensity of Kulture's impending arrival as they collectively hear Cardi’s screams of anguish. The day was July 10, 2018, and Offset along with loved ones were by her side. The clip was cut prior to the miraculous moment of delivery.
Cardi B did not appear stirred by the intimate reveal and even included Offset in her acceptance speech. “I want to thank … the Migos, you, husband, thank you,” she said after expressing her gratitude for other artists who helped on her record. “Seriously, he was like, ‘You gonna do this album, girl. We gonna have this baby and we gonna make this album.’ “
The now iconic trailer revealed an album release date of February 22nd, and alludes to the documentary - and the timing is rather provocative. It was a historical Grammy win as Cardi B became the first solo female rapper to win album of the year, for her debut project Invasion of Privacy and yet, Offset may have taken the monumental moment away from her. Cardi's jaw-dropping performance along with her amazing victory - clouded with sensationalized drama.
According to the New York Times, Offset has pushed excess and impulsiveness to the extreme and is considered the most compelling individual character of Migos. Merging his brand and his life with Cardi B is indicative of marrying business with pleasure - a provocative combination for the eccentric duo.
Cardi and Offset got married in September 2017, during a private ceremony in their bedroom, however, the superstar rapper announced that the couple had broken up in early December.
Offset eventually crashed her set at the Rolling Loud festival in Los Angeles, displaying an enormous 'Take Me Back Cardi' sign made out of white and red roses. Although she rejected his apology, Offset was not deterred that she was less than impressed. In Offset style, he took to the stage, receiving a chorus of cheers and boos from the audience, and begged for her forgiveness.
The couple were visibly together at the Grammy’s and their public displays of affection made headlines. Cardi B even shared her winning moment with Offset by pulling him on stage with her for the grand acceptance, their rapport was theatrical - licking tongues seemed to be the theme of their show.
In line with the dramatic evening, Cardi B was stunning in vintage Thierry Mugler. The now iconic “Oyster” dress was from the French designer’s 1995-1996 couture collection! The masterpiece was originally shown at the Cirque d’Hiver, an iconic venue in Paris, as part of the label’s then - 20th-anniversary party.
The show goes on for the notorious couple. Happily ever after is certainly whatever they design it to be whether its a power play for the world to see, an adventure that will keep us entertained or quite possibly a tongue in cheek love story...we are on Cardi B’s side.
What does the legend have to say? “I hang out with him, I talk to him every day and we do our thing,” Cardi B says of Offset. “It’s just like — to make things perfect … it takes time. You know, f—ing and hanging out doesn’t mean that you guys are on like a perfect note, it takes time. It takes time. And it’s a marriage and there’s a child involved and family involved.”
