Here’s The Real Story Behind Cardi B & Offset’s Trap Love Story

Gotta love a hood story with a happy ending.

Cardi B and Offset’s relationship is the hood Cinderella story we always dreamed about. From the proposal to their hilarious couple videos on social media, the two always keep it real with fans. Even with their transparency, it’s still unclear how the two really got together. In a new video uncovered on Twitter, Cardi broke it down about how Offset pursued her and eventually put a ring on it.

“He was very consistent,” she stated. “He really wanted to talk to me.” So Offset apparently made his first move at an industry event. “It was an event that they had. And it was kind of like a club, but it was more industry event. And as soon as he saw me, he just pushed to his section,” she recalled. “And he was just talking, and I was like, ‘Oh my God… This guy…’”

Admittedly, she didn’t really know who he was. Of course she knew he was one third of the Migos, but she couldn’t put a name to his face. “I just felt like you know, this rapper trying to f**k and everything. And then it’s like I kept talking to him and he keeps saying, ‘I been watching you for a long time. I like your music. You have a lot of potential.’ And it’s just like yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever.”

Eventually Cardi gave in though. After numerous rumors reporting on a secret relationship, the “Bodak Yellow” artist and the rapper came out as a couple. Months later, Offset popped the question during the PowerHouse concert in Philly. Don’t you love a hood story with a happy ending?
