Earlier today, TMZ reported that Offset—1/3 of the trio Migos—would appear in another bail hearing arguing that there's not enough evidence to keep the rapper in prison. Soon after, Rich The Kid tweeted, "Offset will be home in a few hours!" More recently, he provided an update: "Offset will be released today." Migos added, "They cant stop Gods plan Offset free." The FADER reached out to Migos manager Kevin "Coach K" Lee, who confirmed the news, and Rich tweeted a photo with the gleeful caption, "I got my boys bakkkk!!!!"
The rapper had been in jail since April—according to TMZ, for a total of 233 days. Revisit Migos' FADER cover story.
UPDATE (12/4 5:45): Offset's lawyer Drew Findling tells The FADER that his client reached a deal for five years probation.
In a phone conversation, Offset's lawyer Drew Findling explained that Offset is serving five years probation as part of an alford plea deal, and added that the state has agreed to limit the sentence to two years if he behaves accordingly. (The plea deal is technically not an admission of guilt.) The main case against Offset was dismissed this afternoon, and the probation stems from incidents while Offset was in prison.
"He was put in a position where he felt like his arm was held behind his back, he wanted to support his children. He made a decison that it was time to choose freedom," Findling said.
