Banner called the interaction “one of the greatest things that happened to me.”
Offset has had his fair share of run-ins with the law. He was arrested in 2013 for a probation violation and two years later, he was taken into custody at a Migos concert. He spent eight months in jail for the later offense, and for allegedly inciting an altercation in jail, but according to David Banner, Offset wanted to make changes in his life. While chatting with The 85 South Comedy Show, Banner revealed that Offset once approached him and asked for guidance.

He was like, ‘Man, I wanna do better, bro, but I don’t know how.’ And bro, for a young man that didn’t need nobody, they were poppin’ so—he might not even remember that. That meant the world to me.”
