With Father's Day coming up Sunday, Offset is breaking down his plans for the holiday and his hopes for his children's future -- whether it involves music or not.

The Father of 4 artist showcased all of his children on the cover of his 2019 album: Jordan (11), Kody (6), Kalea (6) and Kulture (2), the youngest of whom he shares with fellow rapper Cardi B. He told guest host tWitch on the Father's Day segment of The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday (June 17) about the "wild, nonstop" energy at home. And when they're not busy running around screaming "Daddy! Daddy!" to get Offset's attention, they're trying to follow in his footsteps.

After watching a video of Kody spitting bars while riding a children's ATV in circles, the "Motorsport" artist discussed how he feels about his kids entering the rap game with him.

"He [Kody] watches me so much, I've never taught him any of that. I just let him ... I want them to grow up first and foremost," the 29-year-old rapper responded. "I want them to understand that they got to work hard, that life is not easy. Because me coming up with my Mama and three boys alone, it was times I watched my Mama not eat and I knew that as a 6-year-old, 7-year-old. I know she not eating. So I want them to respect the moral of life and respecting other people and not acting so spoiled."

Even though he's spoiled Kulture with plenty of lavish gifts, including a Hermes Birkin bag for her second birthday, Offset said it's not like that all the time in his house. After coming into new fame and fortune through Migos, he discussed putting his foot down for some of his kids' requests because he didn't grow up that way.

But on Sunday, the Grammy-nominated artist said he's looking forward to some R&R at home and spending time with his kids. He also gave insight into what the "Up" rapper is usually up to on Father's Day. "She usually surprises me with an expensive gift. That's how it usually goes," he explained. "She always just give me love. She treat my other kids that ain't hers and give them love the same way. It's a beautiful thing."

He's had other family affairs to celebrate recently, with his cousin Quavo and Quavo's nephew Takeoff reuniting as Migos on their trilogy-completing album Culture III, which they released last Friday. The deluxe version of Culture III was also unveiled on Thursday, including five bonus tracks.
