Atlanta rapper Offset knows he’s a fighter. The hip-hop star went online this past weekend to share deep thoughts he’s having about his late grandmother.
Last night, Off hit up Instagram to share a heartfelt open message. The Georgia native credited her for giving him the energy and strength to stay strong during the current coronavirus epidemic.
“WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES I SEE MY GRANDMA SAY BOY LIFT YOUR HEAD PRAY AND KEEP GOING NOBODY CAN SEE YOU IN ANYTHING YOU THE BEST”
In September 2017, Offset teamed up with an organization for an event centered on cancer research. He also credited his late family member for inspiring him to get involved.
Offset’s motivation to start this campaign came from his grandmother, Sallie Ann Smith, who died of bladder cancer five years ago. Smith, whom Offset affectionately called Grandma Ann, had a close relationship with her grandson. Offset spent extensive amounts of time with his grandmother during the summers and relied on her maternal guidance to help him through life. “She watched me when my mama couldn’t be there,” Offset said. “She was my daddy. She was the go-to person. If I was in trouble with my mama, I’d go to my grandma, and she always got my back if I’m wrong or right.” (The Undefeated)
