Offset Sues Migos’ Longtime Record Label, Goes to War for His Solo Career,

Offset is suing Quality Control for the rights to his solo career. According to TMZ, the Migos rapper has filed a lawsuit against his label, claiming they failed to honor their agreement made in January 2021.

The dispute stems from Offset (real name Kiari Cephus) dropping his new song “54321” last Friday, which was produced by Baby Keem and released through Motown Records.

The lawsuit, reportedly filed on Tuesday (Aug. 23), states the rapper, legally known as Kiari Kendrell Cephus, previously negotiated his solo deal. Cephus “paid handsomely” for his solo artist rights, but Quality Control has allegedly gone back on its word. Since the release of “54321” and his forthcoming solo project announcement, he says QC isn’t honoring the deal and claiming the Baby Keem-produced track as their own.

However, the suit alleges that Quality Control has become “hostile” and “went so far as to demand” that Motown list Quality Control “as holding an ownership interest” in Offset’s new song, and “presumably, all Offset’s future solo recordings.” (Offset is scheduled to release another new song, “Code,” with Moneybagg Yo on Friday.)

Cephus hasn’t spoken about the future of Migos as of late, but he has doubled down on his solo career. Offset’s next single, “Code,” featuring Moneybagg Yo, drops on Friday (Aug. 26).
