Unless you’ve been living under a rock while managing to tune out any one Bronx-bred rapper Cardi B’s Top 40-charting singles, you’re well-acquainted with the femcee’s penchant for shouting out her man Offset.
After calling out her man a whopping sixteen times on “Bartier Cardi,” (four times in each chorus) the followup single to her record-breaking “Bodak Yellow,” Bardi even slipped in an easy shoutout on her “Motorsport” guest verse: “I get upset f, I turn Offset on/I told him the other day/Man, we should sell that porn.”
Brushing f the critics who claim that the name-dropping her industry mate and partner make her bars tired and predictable, Bardi hopped on her Instagram Story to let the haters know that the name Offset will forever slip through her perfect veneers.
“If I wanna put my man name on all my songs soooooo f*ckkiiiiinnnng what!” she wrote. “Im his biggest fan… Imma mention his name even in my prayers b*tch! Sh*t when Im about to die last word out my mouth is Offset.”
Officially linking up in February 2017 after first collaborating on the track “Lick” f Cardi B’s Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2, #CfSet made their public debut stepping out at Super Bowl LI. Getting down on one knee to secure his lady for life just months later, the Migos rapper slipped half a mil on Bardi’s finger and the horizon looked to be filled with nothing more than gold chains and Gucci frames for the hot-at-the-moment couple.
Now, as the couple is slammed with numerous claims infidelity (with receipts to back it up) and a currently-unfolding baby mama paternity suit courtesy pressional thot Celina Powell, let’s take a look back at Cardi B and Offset’s cutest Instagram snaps and try to remember the happier times when all that got between them was Bardi’s purple blanket.
Months after going public with their relationship, Cardi B introduced her beau Offset to her Instagram feed for the first time outside their numerous pressional collaborations by grinding up on him in an elevator clad in a tight-fitting LaQuan Smith number. Clearly at ease with their up-close encounter, Offset hits his blunt while smugly staring the camera down.
Ain’t No Time Like FaceTime
Everyone knows that Cardi B loves when Offset goes on tour (because she comes more when she sees him less). The “Bartier Cardi” rapper took to Instagram to show her 20.4 million followers how she keeps their long distance love alive when their hectic schedules keep them apart.
Pictured here, Cardi B and Offset cozy up together at the 2017 BET Awards where the “Bodak Yellow” rapper would go on to win the Best New Hip Hop Artist award. “P O W E R F U L S O P R O U D O F Y O U 2017 H A S B E E N B I G Y E A R G O D S W O R K K E E P W I N I N G,” captioned Offset in a direct nod to his lady love’s success.
Who could forget the flurry social media posts that followed Offset’s high-prile proposal to Bardi and the $500,000 rock that he slapped on her finger? “I love you and I love how you managed to get my mom to come out and witness my engagement.Im the happiest girl in the world @fsetyrn you a true King,” wrote Bardi alongside a still shot their engagement.
Pre-Strip Club Smooch
Posting a shot a quick kiss between the couple before they stopped by the famed Ace Diamonds strip club in West Hollywood, Offset was clear in letting his followers know that his chick was “4 L.”
Rolling up deep to Offset’s Met Gala-themed birthday party, Bardi made sure that her man had it all as he celebrated turning 26. From a Bentley ice sculpture to a royal red carpet, the “Set” Gala proved to be the perfect venue for the high-prile couple to put their love on display.
As evidenced by Bardi standing by her man despite numerous public claims infidelity–she’s well aware the fact that her romance isn’t perfect. “REAL relationship Not Relationship goals. Happy V-day my love ily ,I don’t know how we deal with each other, we both crazy,” she wrote.
Offset wasn’t going to let Valentine’s Day slip by without a shoutout to his queen that highlighted her status as a true ride or die. “H A P P Y V A L E N T I N E S D A Y T O M Y Q U E E N U R O D E W I T M E N O B O D Y K N O W H O W H A R D U W O R K E D T O B E C O M E T H E S T A R Y O U ARE…..

Ric Flair Drip
What kind main chick would Cardi B be if she didn’t throw big ups to her man? Posting a clip the Metro Boomin, 21 Savage and Offset collaboration trio, the “Bartier Cardi” rapper proved she’ll stand by anything her man does (and as we already know, anything truly does mean ANYTHING.)
Aside from throwing her man a lavish party, Cardi B took time out her day to fire f an Offset-dedicated post on his actual birthday, December 14. “People see the jewelry and the money, I see the hard work you put in and how caring you are for others. You take care family, your kids, gang and friends! You always challenge me to work harder and be better! True King raised by a Queen ?? I loveeee you, You deserve the world and Me,” captioned Cardi alongside a snap showing f her engagement ring.
