On Wednesday night, Offset hit up Instagram to remind the world just how much he loved and appreciated his wife of 18 months.
“Ride or die forever. Love you no matter what’s going on,” the Migos member captioned a photo of the two on the beach. “[You’re] the best mother and hustler I know.”
Offset’s declaration arrives as Cardi faces backlash over an old video in which she admitted to drugging and robbing men before she became one of the world’s biggest hip-hop stars.
“I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f*ck me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n***as up, and I robbed them,” she said during an Instagram Live broadcast three years ago. “That’s what I used to do.”

The footage resurfaced over the weekend and resulted in the #SurvivingCardiB hashtag, with many people comparing the rapper to convicted sexual predator Bill Cosby.
Cardi has since responded to the backlash, insisting she was not proud of her actions.
“I made the choices that I made did at the time because I had very limited options,” she wrote in a statement. “I was so blessed to have been able to rise from that, but so many women have not. Whether or not they were poor choices at the time, I did what I had to do to survive.”
