At Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in Philly Friday night, something magical happened. It was like watching Goku and Vegeta fuse into Super Saiyan 4, Kevin Durant join forces with the Warriors, or any Rush Hour flick.
While onstage in front of tens of thousands of fans, Offset proposed to Cardi B, and she said yes, instantly making them the greatest duo to ever come together in history.
Am I embellishing a little? Nope.
Cardi B and Offset is the fairytale couple we never knew we needed. They’re two hood legends who made splashes in the mainstream world not giving a fuck about the rules.
Cardi B’s come-up alone was something everyone found themselves rallying behind. She went from dancing at nightclubs to finding viral success on the internet to landing a spot on Love & Hip-Hop.
Then, for shits and giggles, landed the number one song in the country, with “Bodak Yellow” becoming the highest-charting song by a solo female rapper since Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” in the process.
Prior to the Offset proposal, I thought she peaked.
Offset is no slouch either. He and his amigos went number one far before his fiancé with the smash hit “Bad and Boujie” back in January. We’re talking Migos, number one on the Billboard. Not to mention Offset has been spazzing on everyone’s features this year with “Met Gala”, “Headlock”, and “No Complaints”
It was like, them being together was enough, you know? So the fact that Offset decided to follow the OG Gwuop’s footsteps and go down the aisle, simply makes the storyline that much sweeter.
People don’t look at Offset and Cardi B like they do all those other A-list celebrities — which is why they’re already the greatest.
Cardi doesn’t have the mystique of Beyonce, the elegance of Cassie, or the bank account of Kim but she’ll throw a temper tantrum on Instagram story and break-up with Offset for stealing her purple blanket.
And Offset is far from Jay-Z — I’m sure he has unlimited minutes on his money phone — yet, when someone proposes by squatting, not kneeling, and finishing the proposal in “Ya digg?” I think I relate more to the former.
I mean, my mans pulled up on Cardi in the Bronx as if they aren’t worth more than the building itself. The mix between their raw authenticity and piping hot careers has created a rollercoaster I want front seats to.

And so does everyone else. Offset’s proposal barely had time to get out his mouth before BET and VH1 started battling over who will land the special.
Whoever gets to capture Cardi B and her 8-carat ring will be in for a nice payday.
Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir’s Mane Event found an audience on BET earlier this month, so I’m absolutely positive there will be a demand for this hip-hop duo, too.
Jesus Christ I’m so emotional, @offsetyrn I loveee you so much .Thank you for seeing the potential in me since you met me .For giving me advice molding me and loving me .Your such a amazing man to me your family ,friends ,kids and you are extremely talented.I can’t wait to spend FOREVAAAA with you .Lets make a lot shmoney and love together ❤️ ❤️
If history has taught us anything, it’s not to put faith in these celebrity relationships (I’m still adjusting to Wiz and Amber not being together). Besides, divorce amongst celeb couples is so regular it seems like it’s part of the gig.
But I don’t care. I’m all in on Offset and Cardi. I’m drinking the Kool-Aid on this one and I don’t want to look back.
The couple makes you feel as if anything is possible no matter where you come from. That you can be yourself, pursue your dream your way, and still reach the highest peaks. That’s why they’re important, whether they last or not.
At the very least it’s going to give us more dope music. Their latest collab “Motorsport”, which features the rest of Migos and Nicki Minaj, is oozing with chemistry.
Only time can tell the future. Until then, we’re in for an interesting ride.
