Offset’s story is nothing short of tantalizing — the Atlanta trap-star escaped death in March of 2014 after being involved in a shooting outside Miami, and again months later after being targeted in an ongoing street war with fellow ATL rappers. Just last year, the young star once again evaded death’s grip when he was hospitalized after being involved in a brutal car crash. The rapper’s journey is the penultimate come-up — from trap star to one of pop culture’s most revered icons — Offset’s story is what dreams are made of in the culture we call Hip-Hop.
The Aisultan Seitov-directed visual for “Red Room” shares this story, with various audio and video clips showcasing the downfalls and triumphs of Offset’s short history. The unique panning editing technique helps in delivering these events, with the artist going through various phases of his personal life and career.
Take a look at the beautifully crafted video above. Offset’s debut studio album and accompanying documentary will be released February 22; the name of the project currently remains shrouded in mystery.
