Earlier this week, Offset finally dropped off the tracklist for his eagerly-anticipated upcoming album, Set It Off. The performer has been teasing the project for some time, previewing various tracks on social media. Recently, he teased his tracks alongside Don Toliver, Travis Scott, Future, and more. He hosted a private listening party for the new LP, giving fans a taste of what's to come. At the event, he also played his collaboration with Playboi Carti, and a snippet eventually surfaced online.

The collab is rumored to be called "Rock Out." Since hearing the preview, fans have been looking forward to the full track. Unfortunately, however, Playboi Carti isn't featured on the newly-unveiled tracklist. It's unclear exactly why the song is no longer included, but fans aren't happy. Amid the backlash, Offset liked a Twitter user's comment, which claimed that Carti "definitely ain’t clear it." This appears to confirm that Carti's team was behind the whole thing.
