Migos Rapper Offset Has Been Denied Bail For A Second Time In His Drugs And Weapons Case.
The hip-hop star, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, has been held without bail ever since a police raid during a concert at Georgia Southern University in April (15) led to the arrests of Offset and his fellow group members Quavo and Takeoff. They were all booked for drug possession, marijuana possession, possession of firearms in a school safety zone, and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, but Quavo and Takeoff were subsequently released on bail.
Offset was remanded in custody due to a prior felony conviction and his initial bail request was denied in May (15). On Friday (09Oct15), his lawyer filed a new request for bond in a Georgia court, but the motion was denied after prosecutors argued his tattoos proved he was affiliated with a gang and should not be released, according to TMZ.com.
The rapper maintains his Black Migos Gang tattoos are representative of his record label.
