The idea of a rapper getting an acting bag is nothing new –– from LL Cool J and Method Man to Queen Latifah and 50 Cent, some of the most successful rappers of our time have done an excellent job of crossing over to the big and small screens. Now, Migos third Offset joins the club, as he appeared on an episode of NCIS LA this past weekend.
Our friends over at Bossip previously reported:
“Offset is joining LL Cool J and the rest of the cast of NCIS LA, where he is already showing promise in the acting field. In the upcoming episode, the rapper will play an undercover agent who’s already working on his own case when LL and his teammates need Offset’s assistance–but he won’t give it away willingly. The episode involved long hours in the desert, explosions, and very intense stunts in which Offset refused to have a stunt double and did everything himself.”
As promised, Offset made his acting debut over the weekend and we have to give credit where credit is due. He did a stellar job with his accent and was very committed and believable in the role. We loved watching him hold his own alongside acting vets and so did fans, to the point that he went viral and earned himself the nickname “Onset.”
Check out some of the best reactions below. We hope to see Offset on set of a movie, or even a sitcom, soon.
Oh, and of course there were some jokes too…
We love to see it!
