Migos' Offset launches $500,000 campaign for cancer research in honor of grandmother

Offset from the rap group Migos is doing his part to fight cancer. He's starting a $500,000 fundraiser for cancer research.

According to Billboard, the rapper is organizing the drive with the American Cancer Society in honor of his grandmother Sallie Ann Smith, who passed away from bladder cancer in 2012.

Offset said losing her to the deadly disease was nothing short of devastating, and he’s eager to help educate people about early detection and when they should get screened. Once the money is raised, it will go to research that's already focusing on bladder cancer.

While speaking about the fundraiser, Offset’s mother Latabia Woodward said she’s thrilled to have such a caring son.

“I am incredibly proud of Offset’s desire to help save the lives of others. [He’s a] genuine heart and talent as an artist,” she told Billboard.

Meanwhile, Migos is currently in the studio crafting their new album CULTURE 2.  As an appetizer, the group released the single “Too Hotty” last month along with a  video for the song. Plus, Offset, another member of the group, recently spoke about his joint album with Travis Scott that people have been buzzing about for quite some time.

“It’s going to drop real, real soon. Soon as I get some time,” Quavo told Montreality. “We’ve been making a whole bunch of records. We got a lot of records together right now. We’ve probably got like 20 records. We just need to get some time and just sort them out.”
