 Add to favorites

Migos member Offset has denied that he’s homophobic following a controversy over recent lyrics.

This week saw Offset team up with fellow Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci for ‘Boss Life’. The track sees Offset rap the lyrics: “60K solitaire / I do not vibe with queers / I got the heart of a bear / I bust ‘em down by the pair”.

Among those to criticise Offset was MNEK, who tweeted: “Offset saying he doesn’t vibe with queers while constantly wearing and PARADING clothes by gay designers is the REAL gag”.

Following the backlash over the lyric, Offset has taken to Instagram to claim that he wasn’t using the term “queer” in a derogative way.

“I didn’t write the line about gay people,” he wrote. “I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that.”

“When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that ‘queer’ I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd.”

Offset then apologised and said that he was “offended I offended anybody”. See his post below.

Last year, Offset’s bandmate Quavo was accused of homophobia following comments he made about fellow rapper iLoveMakonnen coming out as gay.

Quavo later said that he couldn’t be homophobic because “I got a record with Frank Ocean. That closes my case”.
