I THINK YOU CAN CALL THIS A CASE OF USING YOUR POWERS FOR GOOD. MIGOS ON TOP OF THE WORLD HAVING AN INCREDIBLE COUPLE OF YEARS NOW AND OFFSET IS GOING TO TURN, USE SOME OF THAT POWER FOR A MISSION THAT IS REALLY, REALLY DEAR TO I AM HAD. HE LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN TO RAISE AT LEAST, I’M SURE HE WOULD LIKE TO RAISE MUCH MORE, $500,000 FOR AMERICAN CANCER RESEARCH. THE REASON HE DECIDED TO DO THIS — HARVEY: A FAMILY MEMBER WHO WAS NEAR AND DEAR TO HIM WHO SUCCUMBED TO THE DISEASE AND IT’S SUCH A NOBLE WONDERFUL THING, SO HE JOINS US RIGHT NOW, OFFSET, WELCOME TO “TMZ LIVE.” OFFSET: WHAT’S HAPPENING? HARVEY: HEY, THIS IS REALLY FANTASTIC. WHY DON’T YOU TELL US ABOUT THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS AND WHAT YOU’VE DONE. OFFSET: MY GRANDMA PASSED FROM CANCER, SO IT WAS A CURE FOR CANCER, SO THEY DIDN’T HAVE FOR HER TO MAKE IT, SO SHE PASSED AWAY. SHE WAS BIG IN MY LIFE WITH MUSIC. CHARLES: AND THIS WAS, YOU SAID THIS WAS BEFORE YOU GUYS WERE REALLY BIG, SO MONEY — OFFSET: SHE PASSED AWAY FROM 2012. HARVEY: OFFSET, AS SOMEBODY WHO IS A LOT OLDER THAN YOU, I THINK IT’S REALLY SWEET THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WHEN THEY DIE, THEY’RE FORGOTTEN AND JUST THE FACT THAT THIS IS FIVE YEARS AGO AND IT’S STILL SO TOP OF MINE TO YOU IS REALLY NICE. OFFSET: IT WAS ABOUT TIME FOR ME, IT’S THE TIME FOR ME TO DO IT AND I’M IN THE POSITION TO DO IT. I’M IN A STRONG ENOUGH FACE FOR THE PEOPLE FOR ALL OF YOU IN TIME TO GIVE BACK AND SHOW THE WORLD SHE MEANS SOMETHING. HARVEY: TELL US HOW YOU RAISE THE MONEY. OFFSET: I’M RAISING $500,000 TO GO TO RESEARCH. IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS THREE TIMES THAT RIGHT NOW AND IT’S A CHANCE FOR THOSE TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. CHARLES: YOU HAVE THE INCENTIVES FOR PEOPLE TO DONATE TO THE PROGRAM. TELL US SOME OF THE THINGS THAT THE PEOPLE CAN GET OUT OF THIS BESIDES JUST THE GENEROSITY OF GIVING TO A GREAT CAUSE, THEY CAN GET SOME FABULOUS PRIZES. OFFSET: YOU COME SHOP WITH YOUR BOY. I’LL TAKE YOU SHOPPING IN L.A. I’M GOING TO TAKE YOU SHOPPING IN L.A. AND GET YOU SOME CLOTHES, ALL OF THAT FOR YOU. IT’S PERSONAL, IT AIN’T GOING TO BE LIKE EVERYBODY. CHARLES: YOU GET A CHANCE BASICALLY, YOU CALL IT A BAD BOOZIE SHOPPING SPREE? OFFSET: YEAH. HARVEY: CAN I ASK YOU SOMETHING ABOUT, IT WAS IN THE NEWS SO MUCH AND WE COVERED IT ON “TMZ,” WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND, WITH CARDI B. I’M SURE YOU’RE AWARE SHE PUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA, SHE SAID SHE WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT IN NEW YORK CITY. HER BENTLEY GOT HIT, GOT A LITTLE BIT HEATED. A COP CAME ALONG AND PUT HER IN A CHOKEHOLD. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS? OFFSET: YES, SHE CALLED ME ABOUT IT. CHARLES: WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION, SHE SAID THIS HAPPENED TUESDAY EVENING IN NEW YORK CITY AND THEN SHE CALLED YOU. OFFSET: AT FIRST WHEN SHE CALLED, OH, DANG, THE POLICE, THE POLICE CAN’T PUT THEIR HANDS ON HER. THEY CHOKED OR WHATEVER THEY DID. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON. CHARLES: THAT WAS WEIRD. HER COUSIN AND THE OTHER DRIVER WERE ARGUING AND SHE TRIED TO STEP IN AND THEN THE COP, SHE SAYS CHOKES HER. IT WAS AN ODD SITUATION. OFFSET: I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, I KNOW YOU CAN’T STOP THE POLICE. EVERYTHING THEY GET AWAY WITH IT. HARVEY: DO YOU THINK — WE HAD A BIG ARGUMENT IN THE OFFICE THIS MORNING ABOUT IT. DO YOU THINK THERE IS SUCH A THING SUCH AS THE HIP-HOP COPS? OFFSET: HIP-HOP POLICE, THEY’RE REAL. HARVEY: WHY ARE THEY AFTER PEOPLE WHO ARE IN HIP-HOP? OFFSET: I DON’T KNOW, MAN, I CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY GOT GOING. I DON’T KNOW. CHARLES: THE FIRST RULE OF HIP-HOP POLICE IS YOU DON’T TALK ABOUT HIP-HOP POLICE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE IN HIP-HOP. HARVEY: OFFSET, LISTEN, CONGRATULATIONS ON WHAT YOU’RE DOING. IT’S AWESOME. ALSO CONGRATULATIONS ON ALL OF YOUR SUCCESS. CHARLES: RIGHT, AND WE WANT TO TELL PEOPLE WHERE THEY CAN GO TO DONATE. YOU WERE GOING TO SAY? OFFSET: A SHOUT-OUT TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY, MAN. THEY PUT IT TOGETHER FOR ME. IT WAS LIKE A WHOLE SETUP, A WHOLE PLAN. CHARLES: IT’S A GREAT PROGRAM. HARVEY: YOU CAN GO TO CANCER.ORG/OFFSET. MAKE A DONATION, MAN, GREAT CAUSE. ALL RIGHT, OFFSET, THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US. HARVEY: THANKS OFFSET.
