Rapper gives first interview since release.

Published December 14th

Back in April, Atlanta rap trio Migos was arrested on drugs and weapons charges. Two members were released but Offset remained behind bars for what would turn into an eight-month stint.

Nearly two weeks ago, Offset was released from custody amid pleading guilty to reduced charges. In his first sit-down interview since then, Offset shared what he learned behind bars.

The 23-year-old rapper said jail forced him into self-reflection. He turned to the Bible for guidance, and realized that he needed to make personal changes.  

“I felt like I needed to sit down to see my opportunities so I can take advantage of it as much as I can," he told Atlanta's WSB-TV adding, "My character probably needed a little makeup work done."

Offset goes on to talk challenges that the group faced while he was incarcerated, and has a message for fans.
