Offset recently teased a collab with Playboi Carti, but it's no longer on his new album.

Recently, Offset unveiled the tracklist for his eagerly-awaited upcoming album, Set It Off. The project includes several high-profile features from the likes of Travis Scott, Latto, Future, Don Toliver, and more. Of course, Offset's partner Cardi B also makes a couple appearances. As expected, the tracklist only worked to build more anticipation for the release, which is just a few days away. Set It Off will drop on October 13, 2023.

Though fans were glad to get their eyes on the tracklist, many were quick to notice that something was missing. Offset's teased a few of his collabs in recent weeks, including one with Playboi Carti reportedly titled "Rock Out." The energetic track doesn't appear on the tracklist for Set It Off, however, and fans had questions.
