We are not used to hearing Offset rap by himself.
We're about to hear a lot of that. The Migo told Billboard that his unnamed solo album, which drops December 14, won't have any features on it. He also detailed its vibe.
"I could give you a little content, but I don't want to spill the beans, beans, beans. I'm talking about relevant situations that have occurred over the last 18 or 24 months, like me being in the crash, my kids, my family time and me being married. There's different parts of my life. The ups and downs of being in music, the feeling of people doubting me and being the underdog to becoming the big dog.
I'm not really talking too much about Pateks and Lambos because it's not relatable. That's almost like bubblegum rap now, how the people are accepting it. They just get two days of playing it, then it's over with. This can last and people can feel it.
I'm really pushing my album to be a playlist and not an album, because a playlist is consistently being played for moves, exercises, and different things. With Spotify and all the streaming services, it's all about who got the biggest playlist. So I was focused on making my album like a playlist. The format of what an album is in the books, isn't what's going on in 2019.
When I say I want a playlist vibe, I'm still giving you content with the songs -- real shit that's going on. It's an album of what I've been going through here and there and what got me to this point."
Offset told the music mag that he has high expectations for the album.
"I just want to do big numbers. To me, I don't give a damn about anything but numbers."
Quavo's debut album Quavo Huncho did 99K SPS first week. Takeoff's The Last Rocket pulled in 49K in its opening frame.
What do you have Offset doing? Can he go Gold without features?
