UPDATE 4:30 p.m.
Offset’s bail hearing was a success; he’ll be released from jail today. The Migos’ Twitter account recently announced the good news:
Offset (born Kiari Cephus) is demanding his release, although prosecutors claim he started a jailhouse riot over the summer. Offset’s initial incarceration stemmed from his arrest on drugs and weapons charges, for which he is being held without bail. His Migos members Quavo and Takeoff were also taken into custody at that time, but were later released. Offset’s attorneys claim there is no evidence that he was involved in the brawl, nor did he start it.
In new docs, obtained by TMZ, Offset says video footage from inside the jail shows no clear image of him, and only lasts for 20 seconds. His point — even if it were him, which isn’t clear, how could a RIOT only last 20 seconds?
The rapper’s legal team will present their case on Friday. This will be Offset’s fourth attempt at making bail.
