Offset recorded “Red Room” the day after his car accident.
“The first thing I thought when I crashed was get out the car … and don’t panic, because I know a lot of people die when they panic,” said Offset. He joked that he was able to slide out of the passenger side door to get out, attributing his success to how “skinny” he is. He says that the airbag left bumps on his face, knocking out one of his bottom teeth as well. The steering wheel was jammed tightly against his chest.
“I remember there was so much blood and my face was just burning,” said the rapper, recounting the moment he got out of the car. When the Good Samaritan approached him to ask if he was okay, Offset says that he automatically went on the defensive. “I’m on defense mode because I’m like, ‘If he sees that it’s me, he might try to take something’,” says the Migos star. Eventually, he was helped back to his Atlanta home, which was about a quarter mile away, before running upstairs to Cardi Band asking to be driven to the hospital. Watch him discuss the crash at the 27:20 mark.
