Offset on the Government Shutdown: 'That's Some Slave Sh-t'

Offset is speaking out on the government shutdown, just like his ex Cardi B.

The 27-year-old rapper compared the shutdown, during which government workers have been forced to work without pay, to slavery.

“Seeing people talk about how they can’t pay their bills but they have to work,” Offset told Esquire. “That’s some slave sh-t. I don’t really get into it politics because I’m usually on the other side of it. There’s black mothers with jobs, and now you take their jobs away. And then the president, I don’t really want to speak on him but he’s rich. Make a ni–a respect you, because a ni–a don’t respect you. He’s rich and has these folks struggling.”

    I’m not making light of what he’s saying; it is a serious problem right now. BUT, he’s only 1/2 right — they are working without pay during the shutdown (and it’s only a partial shutdown), but they WILL get back pay when the shutdown is over.

    in the meantime they can’t afford to eat and are essentially slaves working for free. They are pawns in this childish gov.

    Ever heard of saving for a rainy day? This is let the first government shutdown and it probably won’t be the last. They get paid very well.

    They don’t get paid well and they spend their money on rent, utilities, groceries, and other things for their families. It isn’t the government elite not being paid but those in the everyday jobs.
    What they should do is all stop working so everyone could really be affected and thus fired up to end it.

  • MyName

    Their creditors should allow them to wait on payments without any penalties. However, they still have to eat and eat now instead of waiting to eat one half more when it’s over.

  • MyName

    Obama’s time has past. This is about those now directly affected. Deflection doesn’t help them.

  • Wendy

    Sorry baby, look at ole Trumpster for that one. Refusing to give out work visa’s so farmers can have workers, but has no problem giving them to his workers at his Florida Golf Course. As long as the immigrants make HIM money, he has no problem with them. How does it feel to know that you voted for one of the biggest hypocritical liars the world has ever seen?

  • Wendy

    “they get paid very well” lmao babe, you’re thinking of congress. Normal government workers barely make enough to make ends meet. Damn, you people really just say shit without doing any research, huh?
