The Atlanta rhymer sat down for an in-depth cover story for Variety that was published on Wednesday (May 24), and while he didn’t discuss Migos much due to his ongoing legal battle with Quality Control, a small note about his lack of biological relation to the group has left fans’ heads spinning.
“He was classmates with Quavo — the third member of Migos — and began hanging out with him and TakeOff when Offset was in the sixth grade,” the article reads. “While Quavo was TakeOff’s uncle, the two were just three years apart in age, and although Offset is often referred to as Quavo’s cousin, they are actually not biologically related.”
In response, one fan tweeted: “so, damn near a decade of folks writing about migos all being family was … not true? at least the offset/quavo cousin aspect mind you — and nobody corrected it?” To which someone replied with: “I swear I used to use that as concrete evidence for everything from their chemistry and why they lasted so long.”
