Offset’s sophomore solo album set for release on Nov. 11

As Migos groupmates in Quavo and Takeoff explore their sound as a newfound duo, Offset has opted to ride dolo as of late.

Stepping away from the group to focus on his solo career, the Atlanta-bred emcee has been lighting up tracks of his own while “Unc and Phew” continue to pump out impressive joints in tandem. Recently hopping on Trippie Redd’s “Big 14” with Moneybagg Yo and “Step 1” with Sleazyworld Go, Offset is now counting down to his sophomore solo album, reportedly titled BLAME IT ON SET.

Set for release on Nov. 11, its lead single “54321” (Aug. 19) — which was produced by pgLang wunderkind Baby Keem — was just the start of Set’s “personal” new chapter. Sharing the album’s second track “Code” on Aug. 26 with Moneybagg, the album is said to be “full of hits, full of smashes… Y’all gon’ see how I’m coming, I’m coming crazy, all aspects of rap.”

“Code” is further evidence of Offset’s calls for perfection — riding the cinematic, hard-hitting beat as he and Yo trade visceral bars with ease. Swapping between a futuristic all-Balenciaga fit and a leather racing jacket, the colorful and charismatic Migo flexes his star power at every turn — continuing to flesh out his next record’s carefree, triumphant vibe.

“54321” was Offset’s first official single following rumors of the Migos breakup — whose future is still relatively unclear at this time. The track also stems from his 2019 LP Father Of 4, as his sophomore effort will contain 13 tracks and will presumably feature his wife Cardi B.

This is the second time Offset and Baby Keem have come together on a track, previously working on “We Did It Kid” off Kanye West’s DONDA 2. Riding the success of his debut album, The Melodic Blue, as well as his proximity to Kendrick Lamar and appearances on Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Keem has become an anomaly in hip-hop. On “54321,” though, he takes a step back from the mic and is stationed behind the boards.

Amid Set’s solo resurgence, Quavo and Takeoff visited Brian “B-Dot” Miller and Elliot Wilson’s Rap Radar Podcast, asking the duo the differences in working as a pair instead of as a trio. “The chemistry has been there since day 1. We just bounce off each other. The chemistry is the same and the recording is the same,” Quavo and Takeoff said finishing each other’s sentences — proving how in sync the two are in this moment.

On top of features on Freddie Gibbs and G Herbo’s forthcoming albums, Offset is bolstering his star power on his own terms. Until he eventually reconnects with his Migos family, the ATL trap pioneer is dropping off the heat he’s been saving for himself.
