Rapper Offset released from jail as Migos settle legal issues

Migos rapper Offset has been released from jail after striking a plea deal to settle his drugs and weapons case in Georgia.

The hip-hop star, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, was arrested alongside his bandmates Quavo and Takeoff in April (15), following a police raid during their show at Georgia Southern University.


They were all booked for drug possession, marijuana possession, possession of firearms in a school safety zone, and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, but Quavo and Takeoff were subsequently released on bail.


Offset was held behind bars due to a prior felony conviction, and in October (15), he had his third request for bail denied.


However, he was allowed to walk free on Friday (04Dec15) after pleading guilty to a felony for inciting a riot in jail in May (15), in exchange for having other counts against him dropped. He was given credit for time served and placed on five years of probation, according to TMZ.com.


Meanwhile, Quavo and Takeoff also appeared in court on Friday to settle their charges and avoid further jail time.


They were on hand to greet Offset as he exited the Bulloch County Jail and shared video footage of their reunion on social media.
