For Offset, his 2017 has been an enjoyable one thus far. Not only did Migos notch a platinum-smash with their club banger “Bad and Boujee,” they also scored a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with CULTURE. After racking up a bevy of accolades with his Atlanta cohorts, Offset is prepared to do some giving back. On Tuesday (Sept. 19), he launched a $500K fundraiser to promote cancer research in honor of his late grandmother.

“It was really tough losing my grandma to cancer and one of the hardest things I have dealt with in my life,” Offset told the American Cancer Society. “She motivated me to do my best and go for it, one of my biggest coaches.”

In 2012, his grandmother, Sallie Ann Smith, died of bladder cancer. Rather than let her death derail him mentally, Offset opted to be proactive and serve as a catalyst in finding a cure for bladder cancer. “Losing a loved one to cancer is devastating, and we need to continue to help educate our communities about early detection and screening guidelines. I am incredibly proud of Offset’s desire to help save the lives of others, genuine heart and talent as an artist,” Latabia Woodward, Offset’s mother, added.
