Offset alluded to the tragedy of his groupmate TakeOff’s passing, which understandably postponed the release of ‘Set It Off’.
Originally scheduled for November, the album’s delay was attributed to the loss and the need for Offset to find his creative footing again.
Offset reflected on the prolonged creative process, noting…
“I had to sit down for a minute and get with my momma and pray and get myself together”.
He also underscored the importance of making sure the album’s release had a meaningful impact, particularly as he transitioned from being part of a group, stressing the need for every element to align perfectly.
