It looks like Offset is starting fresh with his father whom he hasn’t seen in 23 years.
The Migos rapper just took to his Instagram with video of the touching occasion and, warning: it’s sob-inducing.
"DREAMS DO COME TRUE HAVENT SEEN MY FATHER IN 23 YEARS !!!!!! AND I STILL LOVE HIM THE PAST IS THE PAST AND THE PRESENT IS ALL WE HAVE TO RELY ON WE NOT PERFECT IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM I LOVE YOU POPS !!! NO MATTER WHAT!!!!" Offset captioned under the video.
During his most recent interview on The Breakfast Club, Offset revealed that he hasn’t seen his father since he was four years old and hadn’t even spoke with him over the phone since 2016. At the time, he made it clear that he was open to reuniting.
As for what separated them, the son says his dad wouldn't return to his life, even after his success, due to pride. “It just started to make me upset. I've reached out and you've slapped my hand. You slapped my hand when it wasn't even out,” he explained during the interview. “You didn't even come back to put anything in my hand. So now I feel like you don't have any respect for me. You’re still running and you don't have to.”
Also during the interview, Offset also described his lean addiction and the Cardi B cheating scandal. It seems that he may have realized that, like all humans, he isn’t perfect and whatever happened between him and his father, everyone deserves a second chance.
Social media was also here for the reunion. See what they had to say below.

Seeing that video of offset seeing his father for the first time in 23 yrs hit me a bit. I never got the opportunity to talk to my father and work out our differences. He was never apart of my life and I just found out last year he's been dead a few years now. I never knew him.— Mix Tape Mini (@mixtapemini) April 27, 2019
