American Rapper Offset has been crystal clear in the past that he was open to reuniting with his father, who he hadn’t seen since he was four years old.
Going by his latest social media post, it looks like his dream has finally come true.
The 27-year-old Migos rapper reconnected with his dad in a very emotional reunion that was caught on camera and posted on Instagram on Friday night.
The video begins with father and son outside at an unknown location embracing each other in a tight hug.
Offset is dressed in black sweatpants, a black t-shirt with his dreads pulled back into a ponytail.
At one point in the video his father begins to slap on Offset’s back in another show of emotion.
With tears flowing, the two men step back to say a few words and engage in a handshake. Within seconds they joined together for another tight embrace.
At the end of the hug, Offset’s father wipes away the tears from his eyes.
In a recent interview, the rapper was candid about not seeing his dad since he was four-years old; adding that they hadn’t talked since 2016. He even referenced how he had been trying to give his dad some money now that he’s rich.
Offset, who’s real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, grew up with his mother and stepfather in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
