Offset of the rap group Migos was locked up in Atlanta on a felony weapons possession charge, according to published reports.

Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, was arrested during a routine traffic stop on Friday in Atlanta.

Police pulled over the 26-year-old for violating Georgia’s window tinting laws. During a search of his vehicle cops discovered at least one weapon and a small amount of marijuana, TMZ reports.

The charges may be upgraded since Offset is a convicted felon in possession of a weapon. He is on probation following an arrest in 2015 for drugs and weapons charges.

Offset recently welcomed a daughter with rapper Cardi B. He has 3 other children by multiple women.

In unrelated news, Cardi and Offset face a lawsuit filed by an autograph seeker who claims he was assaulted at a New York hotel following the Met Gala.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Giovanni Arnold is suing Cardi, Offset, and the Mark Hotel where the couple was staying.

The hotel denies any wrongdoing in the alleged beatdown.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Think he above the law he bragged not too long ago how cardi got him out of a ticket because he got pulled over and the officer let him FaceTime cardi and because she said hello they let him. Even if that were true that’s something you keep between you the cop and cardi but these folks these days so used to flexin and acting important they don’t know how to stfu. All this legal trouble and law suits and kids gone run through their money! Noticed I said THEIR and the other two members owe back taxes????? But they posting on social media all these cars they buying and jelwery which leads me to believe it’s all leased!

    She bragged she is married now and she doesn’t deal with shytty men. I guess 3 kids by 3 different women was just a afterthought. She thinks she is a special one and now she is finding out she is just another one.

    Tried to tell her that the new baby smell is old to him but new to her. It is just another day in the neighborhood to him and she thinks he is excited to have a baby with her because after all she is CARDI B. I am sure the other baby mama’s felt the same way once upon a time.

  • NeverSurprised

    3 kids, 3 different women, one felony conviction and now a new felony charge. I would love to know her definition of a “sh$tty man.”

    She is young and attractive and (for now at least) successful, so she could have had her choice of countless men, yet THIS is who she chooses. I think there has been a lack of guidance from older women in her life on what to look for in a mate.

    She is a grown azz woman who made her own choices. Can’t blame the older women for that. Time for her to take personal responsibility then her daughter will blame her for her misdeeds. Gotta stop somewhere. My kids can’t blame me of they choose bad men in their life. I got rid of their own daddy and I had no problem getting rid of other men.

  • NeverSurprised

    She is a very YOUNG woman. How she was raised (and by whom) has a direct impact on the decisions she is making. That is not BLAMING anyone, it’s simply a statement of fact.

    We were ALL raised by someone. If we are taught how to make good decisions it makes a difference. So far in her young life, she has been a gang member, a stripper, and now the young wife of a felon with multiple children by multiple women. Those are ALL bad decisions. So either she is hard-headed and ignored the advice of her mother/parents, or they failed to offer sound parental guidance.

    This principle applies in all areas.
    Example: She got very lucky and fell into a lucrative career, but if no one TEACHES her how to invest her money, she will make bad decisions and may end up losing it all. The same principle applies to her other life decisions.

    Now it makes sense why he pleaded with a stranger to help him walk away from the scene of his car accident months ago. He then played the brother cheap with a cheap car and grandstanded on social media with the presentation of the car. That guy saved him from prison! And Offset gave him a used car and treated him like a charity case for the world to see. Then Offset goes and gets arrested at a TRAFFIC STOP. How ironic is that.

    DUI would have added to these weapon charges. Daggone right Offset begged that brother help him walk home. Then played him cheap. Brother did Offset a favor not the other way around.

  • Yardgirl

    Dead AF!! ?You are so right it DOES looks like a big toe!!?????

  • dru and neil

    That dude from the met gala has the right to sue, but I’m not sure how he’s going to prove that Offset and Cardi had anything to do with the beating since they had one of their thug groupies so the dirty work.
    How can he prove they are at fault?

  • dru and neil

    She’s already cast in that role, what’s so pious about her? Ever heard of a mob moll? Some women live for this sh*t.

  • dru and neil

    There’s always a reckoning! He should have done upon that man as he done upon him. Maybe the universe would have returned the favor, you’re right!

  • NeverSurprised

    Ummm, her last boyfriend was also a felon. He was released last year after doing 4 years for — wait for it — gun possession!! So it appears she has already solidly cast herself in the role of partnering with felons. She obviously likes this lifestyle. New millions don’t automatically confer common sense.

    That accident was a warning. And he did not take heed.

  • hottlanta

    She had a video of him putting a crib together without looking at instructions as if it was something new to him and she was all excited. He is used to it. When a man does stuff like that RUNNN!!!!!. That crib probably was recycled from his other baby mothers.

    “…visiting a jail”
    ———-

    In law school I did an internship on Rikers Island. I once saw two young women in the Visitation Line who got into a FIST FIGHT because they were both there to visit the same inmate. They were FIGHTING, over a man IN JAIL. I was aghast, but my Legal Aid supervisor just shrugged her shoulders and said, “it happens all the time”.

    Exactly how low do your standards have to be to think a man in jail is a catch? But clearly, Cardi has equally low standards because, as you noted, she has sooo many more options. Sad.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    U right

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Exactly no big deal

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I guess how we loved lil Wayne

  • OvertheMississippi

    Preach, preacher!!

  • Malai

    I have always said that.. why have a baby wit a man that ALREADY have one? He won’t be excited at all..and Cardi married offset in a hurry to save face but she’ll be singing a different tune when her money is taken just like you said.. that was a bad mistake.. it’s better to be alone rather than be desperate for a piece of a man

  • OvertheMississippi

    Talk your talk, my ATL brother!!

  • the guest

    I always wonder why rappers who make even a modest wealth amount of 5 million dollars don’t just cash out and live a solid normal middle class life off the interest.

    They are addicted to delusions of luxury, crime, and are literally incapable of living a normal life even at the risk of self destruction.

    Cardi B, right now, can take her baby, buy a house outright, bank college fund, and live a solid normal life off interest. But instead she’s going to throw money at lawyers for Offset and take her infant to a jail.

  • Panther Charleston

    Damn, Cephus, should’ve been more careful. Always thinking everything gone turn out to be just a warning.

    I’m sure the gun wasn’t to rob or Kill random people… strictly for protection.. seeing as tho he’s a walking target (wasnt another couple of rappers just robbed and killed) I don’t see why the f he didn’t hire security to legally possess these guns in his presence ?? & the fact that he’s a felon already, goodness offset… why?!

They in it for the long haul. AND Offset will beat these charges. Even if he had to do some time, Cardi will do that bid with him. That’s the man she chose to marry. He’s HER husband. Stop wishing bad on people. And you wonder why things don’t work out for you.

  • Julia Lyons

    I hear you, Cardi. Stand by your man. ???

  • the guest

    I don’t wish bad on Offset and Cardi or anyone.

    It is Offset’s own behavior that is not wishing good on his wife and child (and children). I hope for Offset to make wiser choices as a husband and father, and I hope their marriage lasts forever.

    He’s a felon but with money and options. There is no reason for him to be driving around with a weapon or drugs. Not like he has to walk. With a wife and newborn at home, common sense says he should leave weed at home, have a driver, and a bodyguard with him.

    With that, he has constitutional rights and his car should not be searched without probable cause. But when you are black, male, felon, on probation, especially if you are rich and famous, you are being watched and profiled because the purpose of probation is recidivism.

  • FukkFolks2018

    He had security with him comes to find out. Even I thought he was dolo.

    “Offset, 26, was pulled over on Friday evening while driving in a 2014 Porche 911 Carerra with his bodyguard outside of Atlanta”

    “he did not commit any traffic offenses besides being a young African-American man in a flashy car wearing nice jewelry,” the attorney said.

    “He has a security team that have licenses to possess firearms and he did not physically have any firearms in his possession.”
