Offset is following in his wife Cardi B's footsteps and calling out Donald Trump over his government shutdown:
"We’re going through a f*cked up time,” he told Exquire.
“Both sides. Black and the white. You know why? The government shutdown. Black people aren’t working, white folks aren’t working. It's everybody.”
The rapper, who recently revealed that he would not be dropping his debut solo album this month, went deeper in explaining his gripes over the shutdown:
“This ain't supposed to be going down. Not in America. We got our chest out, we got the money, we got the cars, we got the celebrities, we got the stars, everybody wants to be like us. All these other countries when I go there, they're inspired by us,” he said.
“Seeing people talk about how they can't pay their bills but they have to work. That's some slave sh*t. I don't really get into it politics because I'm usually on the other side of it. There’s black mothers with jobs, and now you take their jobs away. And then the president, I don't really want to speak on him but he's rich. Make a n*gga respect you, because a n*gga don't respect you. He's rich and has these folks struggling."
