AceShowbiz - After postponing the release of his debut solo album for sometime, Offset has finally given fans the first taste of the upcoming effort. The Atlanta rapper unearthed the album's lead single, "Red Room", along with its accompanying music video on Wednesday, February 13. The visuals was directed by Aisultan Seitov.
Clocking in four minutes and forty four seconds, the visuals coincides with the lyrics of the song, which talks about his dramatic life story. From growing up with no father to getting involved in a shooting outside Miami, the Migos member sure has been through a lot. At one point in the visuals, Offset reenacts his brutal car crash, which landed him in the hospital last May.
There is also a scene of him standing in a red room with his children's names, Kody and Kulture, scrawled on the walls. "Sleep on my feet/ Money turn homies to zombies, they eat/ Miss my grandma, she was humble and sweet," he raps on the Metro Boomin-produced track. "I don't speak, let the check talk for me/ I can't sleep 'less the Tec in my reach/ Hit the dope, make me choke, make me wheeze."
"Red Room" was accidentally put on streaming services in November 2018, but was taken down shortly after without explanation. Offset said of the song, "My first solo project I want to express my life let my fans know a little more about myself and of course some turn up."
Allegedly titled "The Set Gala", the long-awaited effort is set to be released on February 22. The album is preceded by solo releases from his fellow Migos members, Quavo's solo album "Quavo Huncho" and Takeoff's "The Last Rocket". Following the release of Offset's album, the three members of the hip-hop group will reunite to prepare for "Culture III", which is expected to be released in early 2019.
