Offset is opening up about why he and Cardi B make "a great team."

In an interview with Variety, the rapper, whose career rose to prominence as part of the hip-hop trio Migos, said his wife, rapper Cardi B, "always got my back, right or wrong."

"We both are on the same mission to make each other better," said Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus. "Social is her strong point, so I listen to her social advice. And me, it's the music, but I play behind the scenes; it's my wife so I want to make sure she win."

"We are a great team," he added. "We're a powerhouse at this point -- icon status. We believe in God. We believe in family. We're always going to keep winning."

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, also gushed over her husband and said Offset puts their family first.

"What I appreciate about my husband… is that no matter what issue I am having personally or professionally, I know he will take care of me and our family," she said. "It's handled. I know that I have a man who has my back for real. I fully support him in this next chapter of his music career."

The couple secretly married in September 2017. Cardi B filed for divorce from Offset in September 2020, but called off her divorce from the rapper two months later.

Offset shares two kids with Cardi B: daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, 4, and son Wave Set Cephus, 1. He also is the father to Jordan Cephus, 13, Kody Cephus, 7, and daughter Kalea Marie Cephus, 8, from previous relationships.

Earlier this month, he took his daughters Kulture Kiari and Kalea Marie to the premiere of "The Little Mermaid" in Hollywood, California.

The "Father of 4" rapper is slated to release a new album featuring songs he collaborated on with Travis Scott, Future, Chloë Bailey, Latto and Cardi B.

He said his new album will also feature the last song he recorded with rapper Takeoff, who was shot and killed in November while attending an event in Houston with Migos group member Quavo.

"Talking about Take is hard," Offset said. "Talking about all this s--- is hard. That's why I don't, to be honest."

While he's excited about his upcoming album, Offset said that he's not rushing it.

"I really wanted to drop the album like two years ago, but it wasn't time," he said. "I had to master who I was, and I got it now."
