Offset has been accused of using a homophobic lyric on YFN Lucci’s “Boss Life.” “Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear, 60k solitaire, I cannot vibe with queers,” he says on the track.
The Migos rapper has now taken to Instagram to address the controversy, saying that he didn’t use “queers” as a homophobic slur. “I didn’t write the line about gay people,” he says along with a Google definition of the word. “To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd.”

I didn’t write the line about gay people. I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that. When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended I offended anybody
