The Migos rapper Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus,has been charged with felony gun possession after he was arrested for allegedly carrying three firearms while on probation last summer.
Last Year Offset was arrested after being pulled over for allegedly making an improper lane change outside Atlanta. After he was stopped, police claim they found a gun and marijuana in the vehicle.
The Clayton County D.A.’s Office confirmed that prosecutors filed three charges against the Migos rapper in February, including the felony charge for firearms possession by a convicted felon, and misdemeanor charges for marijuana possession and an improper lane change.
The rapper, 27, entered a plea of not guilty last month and his next court date is scheduled for May.The Migos rapper’s lawyer believes Offset was targeted because he’s rich, successful and black, and believes the cop’s initial traffic stop was completely bogus.
The Georgia native said he escaped punishment that same month after police released him following a traffic stop, after the officer took a selfie with his superstar wife, Cardi B, who was on FaceTime with him at the time.
