Migos’ Rapper Offset welcomed his father back into his life in a public display of forgiveness after a 23-year absence.
Offset’s sentimental moment was captured on Instagram for the world to see as the rapper hugged his father in an lingering embrace. The rapper captioned his compassion by stressing the importance of the present versus holding on to the past.
The reunion with Offset and his father comes full circle after a recent radio interview with The Breakfast Club. Offset went on to mention a series of disappointments he experienced in his childhood as well as how it relates to the person he is today.
In general, Black men aren’t typically shown in the media as loving and forgiving beings. Seeing Offset sharing such an emotional point of his life with the world can undoubtedly change the perception of vulnerability in black men.
Sweet Spill Opinion: The power of forgiveness can heal even the most hurt of souls. Kudos to Offset for showing black men in a more relenting light! The media doesn’t see it enough!!
