The "Bad and Boujee" MC has already collaborated with Cardi on tracks like "MotorSport" and "Drip", which he recorded as part of his band Migos, and as he prepares to drop his first solo album, Offset admits the "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker's chart domination has inspired him to push himself creatively.
"I'd seen her potential, her vision, her grind. Whatever she does, she's going to master it," he told The New York Times of how Cardi has influenced his career. "She's like me. She brings excitement and pressure to me, but I like that. She's number one, so every time I'm hitting the charts, I've got to be Top 10."
Their similar work ethics and chemistry both in and out of the studio has Offset considering the idea of a full studio release with Cardi, who he secretly wed in September, 2017.
"We haven't even dropped an album yet," he noted as he listed the perks of being one half of a rap power couple. "That's a whole other realm."
Offset's comments were published hours before he and Cardi, the mother of his four-month-old daughter Kulture, engaged in a freestyle rap battle online, with the loser having to dig deep to pay for all of their Christmas decorations for the couple's New York and Atlanta, Georgia homes.
The lyrical challenge was streamed live on new social media platform TikTok on Thursday afternoon, as part of a promotional push, with fans asked to judge who the winner should be.
However, it appears a winner has yet to be officially announced as on Friday, Cardi posted on her Instagram Story timeline, "Who watched the battle on tiktok? Who won me or @offsetrn (sic)?"
