(AllHipHop News) Offset is on a mission to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The Atlanta rapper's goal of collecting $500,000 is a tribute to his late grandmother Sallie Ann Smith who lost her life to bladder cancer in 2012.
"It was really tough losing my grandma to cancer and one of the hardest things I have dealt with in my life," stated Offset. "She motivated me to do my best and go for it; one of my biggest coaches.”
Both the Migos member and the ACS announced the campaign on social media. Cardi B also supported her boyfriend by reposting Offset's Instagram video to her 9.9. million followers.
