Jimmy Kimmel translates Offset and Cardi B’s collab-hit ‘Clout’

Last night, rapper husband and wife team, Offset and Cardi B made a special appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

The two appeared for the segment, New Lyrics for Old People, which is a skit that helps explain to the “old heads” just what artists of today are spitting bars about.

This time around, the track under the microscope was the duo’s hit collaboration track, ‘Clout’.

Offset kicked things off by rapping: “Straight out the streets to a penthouse, Miami Beach, yayo” to which Kimmel translated, “I came from humble beginnings and now I own a condominium in Florida, yayo.

Offset continued spitting bars with “Swapping out cars with my b*tch, I bought her the Lambo, she bought me the Wraith” before Cardi B jumped in, exclaiming excitedly “That’s me!” while pointing to herself. Slightly unsure, Kimmel gave his interpretation of the lyrics, saying “That means, uh, his wife and I exchanged cars and jewelry, is that correct? To which Cardi nodded and smiled.

Next, Offset gave the line, “Get the wealth, put it up for my seeds, no cure for the IG disease.” Kimmel was on-point with his translation, saying, “Seeds are kids, right? So, I’m saving my money for my children, and I love Instagram. A lot.”

Finally, it was Cardi’s turn to show-off, with some lyrics of her own. “I say, ‘Whole lotta people need to hear this, it’s a lotta names on my hit list” she rapped, before Kimmel interpreted, “Ok, that means everyone listen closely because I’m upset with a lot of you.

Things took a turn for the awkward when Cardi spat her next rhyme, “P*ssy still wet like a big b*tch.” Unfortunately for Kimmel, his translation missed the mark, forcing Cardi to explain the line’s true meaning. Check out the hilarious transaction below.

Offset, who is best known as one-third of hip-hop trio Migos, released his first solo album, Father of 4 earlier this year. ‘Clout’ is one of the tracks featured on the project.
