Offset confirmed that he’s not actually biologically related to either Quavo or the late Migos rapper Takeoff, who are both nephew and uncle. Despite often being referred to as their cousin, he confirmed this isn’t actually the case during a new interview with Variety.

The three were classmates during childhood and began hanging out more often in the sixth grade. It was while hanging out in Quavo’s mom’s basement that they developed the “triplet flow” they’ve ridden to superstardom.

While reflecting on his upbringing, Offset explained how his father was “nowhere to be found” throughout his childhood. Instead, he relied on strong female voices to raise him. “A female can take you somewhere you might can’t take yourself,” he said. “You always need that guidance, like from that mother or that grandmother. That’s my key to my push and my drive. Strong women are going to put you in strong places.”

He also discussed how his precocious dance talents notched him appearances in Whitney Houston and TLC music videos at a young age. “I started off as a child doing this shit on accident,” he said. “My mama pulled up like, ‘Hey, when the music plays, dance!’ I’m like 8 years old and I get picked to be in a Whitney video. That’s big. So that be a reminder: I always think of my past to remind myself, ‘This shit is gonna be fine.’ That’s how I stay in pocket. That’s how I know I’m going to be great.” Check out his cover story for Variety below.
