Last year, Offset faced a felony gun possession charge in the state of Georgia following an arrest back in July 2018. He pleaded not guilty to that charge.

Soon after that, Offset and his wife Cardi B took over the streets of Hollywood for a special TV performance of the former’s song ‘Clout’.

‘Clout’ is taken from the Migos rapper’s debut solo album ‘Father of 4’, which was released last year.

The two rappers performed much of the song walking along Hollywood Boulevard, where they interacted with a number of pre-arranged extras (including an Elvis impersonator) as hundreds of fans gathered to watch on.
