Atlanta rapper Offset from the Migo’s has been released from jail and is back with his family.
This past Friday, Offset was pulled over in a vehicle outside of Atlanta where guns and drugs were found.
His lawyer Drew Findling is claiming the police are targeting Offset since he’s young, black, and rich.
"It's a common theme. We're talking about a young, African-American man driving a shiny, beautiful luxury car and clad in designer clothes and watches and jewelry," Drew Findling stated.
His attorney is also claiming that the guy riding “shotgun” with Offset is a security guard and has a permit to carry the firearm that was recovered.
"Unfortunately people in his genre become a target for law enforcement who think that lifestyle is connected to some illegal activity, and that is a sad statement," Offset’s attorney continued.
The new drama ironically comes on the heels of one of the best moments in the young rapper’s life, The welcoming of his first newborn, Kulture with wife Cardi B.
Let’s hope that Offset gets a fair shake. Sounds like it could be a misunderstanding 💯.
