The Migos rapper's mom outed his dancer days in an interview.

Long before Offset was — well, Offset (his given name is actually Kiari Kendrell Cephus) — he was a backup dancer for Whitney Houston and TLC. It's true. The New York Times broke te news of the 26-year-old Migos rapper’s secret past in a profile shared Thursday (Nov. 29).

While his mother let the facts slip, Offset didn’t seem too fazed; He shared a behind-the-scenes photo of his 10 year-old self on the set of Whitney Houston’s 2002 “Whatchulookinat” video back on Nov. 18.

“I BEEN DOING THIS ENTERTAINMENT GOD MY WITNESS WHICH ONE IS ME????” he captioned the Instagram post.

Offset’s first ever solo album drops on Dec. 14 (which happens to be his 27th birthday).
