"That's my baby."
Much like the great love stories before theirs, Offset says that he found himself overwhelmed with all of Cardi B’s Cardi-ness. When she hit the hip-hop scene, Offset knew he had to meet her. The more the rapstress hustled her way through the music industry’s many hoops, the more fascinated Offset became with her.
“I was like, ‘D**n, I am on her!'” Offset told Rolling Stone in his latest interview. “I am like, ‘S**t, I like Cardi B!'”
Before too long, the Migos rapper had his publicist set a dinner in New York for an exclusive group of women. The event, which Cardi attended, lead to the duo’s first date at the Super Bowl. Fast forward to present day, the couple is engaged and Offset is sharing exactly why he loves Belcalis Almanzar.
Publicly in Love
Fans are consistently seeing Cardi’s affection for Offset. Whether listening to her songs or watching her Instagram videos, no one can miss Cardi’s mentions of her fiancé-of-three-months.
Offset, on the other hand, isn’t as mushy, gushy. When asked why he wants to marry Cardi, he didn’t give an awfully romantic answer, but it was the realest nonetheless.
“She is real solid, came from where I came from, did what I did,” Offset said during his Rolling Stone interview. “She’s herself, man.”
After revealing that he watched her “develop from the trenches all the way up,” he said that he appreciates the way Cardi earned the burgeoning career she now calls hers.
“I respect her grind as a woman,” he continued. “She came to the game with some gangsta s**t. I like that. I f**k with her. That’s my baby.”
Though, their wedding plans have taken a backseat to their grind. “We chilling. We don’t got time for that right now,” Offset answered when asked about wedding planning. “It ain’t no gig. It ain’t no f**king game, you know what I’m saying? It ain’t no game. It’s my life.”
The couple’s very public engagement came about a year after their first date. In October of 2017, Offset got down on one knee to pop one of the most important questions Cardi may ever be asked… in front of everyone “so she wouldn’t think I was playing.”
Captioned “Offset proposed,” Cardi posted a video showing the couple at Power 99 radio’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia. In the clip, Offset taps Cardi on the shoulder, squatting down as she turns around. The rapper then opens a box, revealing a huge diamond ring, as Cardi proceeds to flip out. After minutes of her bouncing around, Offset stands to put the ring on her finger.
The “Foreva” rapper posted a string of social media posts about her engagement, including a long, tear-jerking message to her groom-to-be. “Thank you for seeing the potential in me since you met me. For giving me advice molding me and loving me,” she wrote in part. “Your [sic] such a amazing man to me your family, friends, kids and you are extremely talented.”
She also posted an Instagram video, giving her fans a close up view of her 8-carat engagement ring. “Let the world see that s**t. I must have spent half a million on that [ring],” Offset told Rolling Stone.
