Offset says he shouldn’t have got into a beef with Chris Brown over 21 Savage meme

The rappers were involved in a heated exchange after 21 Savage was detained by ICE

Offset has expressed regret over getting involved in a spat with Chris Brown over a 21 Savage meme.

The beef between the two rappers began earlier this month after 21 Savage was detained by ICE for violating the conditions of his non-immigrant visa. When he was arrested, it was revealed that the star was born in the UK, not Atlanta as previously thought.

Brown made light of the situation by posting a video of Savage overdubbed with a British accent. Offset responded, telling him, “Memes ain’t funny lame” to which Brown replied with a series of expletive-filled comments.


Now, the Migos star has admitted he shouldn’t have gotten involved in the feud. “I shouldn’t have even did that,” he said during an appearance on New York radio station Hot97. “I don’t let people reel me up because I’m really – whatever message you trying to put, I’ve done it for real.

“See, the thing about the internet, people wanna go, ‘hahaha’, but when something goes left, the internet gonna tell on you and the person gonna tell on you. I ain’t trying to get in no trouble.”

Offset released his solo album ‘Father Of 4’ last week (February 22). 21 Savage features on the track ‘Legacy’, alongside Travis Scott. Cardi B, J. Cole, CeeLo Green, and Offset’s Migos bandmate Quavo also appears on the record.

Yesterday (February 26), the rapper shared the video for ‘Quarter Milli’, which sees him and Gucci Mane committing a bank robbery.
