Most people know the famed Atlanta rapper Offset for one of two reasons. He was one-third of the popular rap group Migos before pursuing a solo career and is husband to Cardi B , a female MC who needs no introduction. But the southern music artist has been in the entertainment industry for years — including as a backup dancer to Whitney Houston at one point. As part of Migos, Offset and his group members, Quavo and the late Takeoff, helped to bring Trap music further into the mainstream with iconic hits like “Bad and Boujee” and “Walk It Talk It.” He would go on as a solo artist to further establish himself as a fixture in the rap genre, earning a Best Rap Performance Grammy nomination for his song “Clout” which features his wife. With all the success and notoriety afforded Offset, exactly how much is the former Migos member worth? Little is known about Offset’s early life except that he hails from a middle-class family. Born Kiari Kendrell Cephus in 1991, he’s a Georgian native...

If you’re a sneakerhead, you might want to listen up for this one. According to a press release, one of the oldest and most successful e-commerce websites known on the Internet has just launched a flagship store in Los Angeles that rewards avid sneaker wearers for sporting their kicks. As one of the places to go when on the hunt for both new and pre-owned sneakers, eBay now wants to reward people who not only purchase shoes from their new store but for leaving out with them on their feet. For the forthcoming holiday, the Wear ‘Em Out store will become home to some of the most exclusive, top-notch sneakers available to sneaker lovers outside of eBay’s normal online platform. “Most people can identify with that feeling of getting a new pair of shoes that you love so much, you just HAVE to wear them out of the store,” said Garry Thaniel, GM of Sneakers at eBay. “The Wear ‘Em Out Store celebrates a love of sneakers while acknowledging that sneakerheads are often balancing what they wear...

Offset owes a car rental company money — and a lot of it. Uproxx reports that the Migos rapper was recently ordered to pay more than $950,000 for a Bentley that he allegedly rented from a luxury auto rental company in Los Angeles — which was subsequently stolen. For what it’s worth, the value of the Bentley in question is roughly $177,000 — and it’s the demand for more than five times the value of the car that has Offset up in arms. What’s more, the outlet reports that he didn’t even know about the judgment until the entertainment lawyers for his wife — Cardi B — went down to the Superior Court in Los Angeles and obtained the paperwork. He further claims that the reason he didn’t get the paperwork had nothing to do with his desire to “ignore” the lawsuit, and everything to do with the fact that the attorneys for the auto rental company mailed the paperwork to his father’s address — where he hadn’t lived for quite some time. And if all that wasn’t enough, Offset further claims that...

When Migos first broke into the mainstream in 2016 with “Bad and Boujee,” their impact was fast and nearly immediate. By 2018, the collective’s viral hit had topped Billboard’s Hot 100 list, and Forbes Magazine noted that they were demanding $150,000 per show. Subsequently, the collective made it to Forbes’ 2018 list of 30 under 30 in music. That same year, Cardi B — who is now married to Offset from the Migos — made it to the list, as well. And this kicked off a series of successes for the Atlanta natives that culminated, according to Celebrity Net Worth, with an estimated combined net worth of $80 million. But while it seems like their success was an overnight one, the reality is, it was anything but. The collective was first formed in 2008, and it took nearly a decade (even with the Internet and social media at their disposal) to finally gain traction with their music. That said, between September 2017 and September 2018, the collective earned more than $25 million from their...
