Offset speaks out amid the drama arising from wife, Cardi B’s past.

The 27-year-old star — who has nine-month-old daughter Kulture with the 26-year-old rapper — has thrown his public support behind his wife with a social media post after she opened up about drugging and robbing men to “survive” when she was a stripper.

He says he still loves his “ride or die” Cardi B, despite revelations about her past.

From his Instagram account, he wrote: “RIDE OR DIE FOREVER LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT’S GOING ON I LOVE YOU BEST MOTHER AND HUSTLER I KNOW. (sic)”

His comment comes after the “I Like It” hitmaker has spoken out in light of an old Instagram Live post that resurfaced. Cardi B has insisted she has never tried to “glorify” her past.

In a lengthy statement posted to Instagram, she wrote:  “I’m seeing on social media that a live I did 3 years ago has popped back up. A live where I talked about things I had to do in my past right or wrong that I felt I needed to do to make a better living. I never claim to be a perfect or come from a perfect world wit a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s—. I’m a part of a hip-hop culture where you can talk about where you come from, talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are. There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs and robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive. I never glorified the things I brought up in that live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it. I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options. I was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not. Whether or not they were poor choices at the time I did what I had to do to survive. (sic)”

Cardi insisted the men she was involved with were “conscious, willing and aware”, and has vowed to be a “better me.”
