Migos rapper Takeoff is defending group member Offset, claiming the cops keep a tight watch on the group.

Our photog caught up with Takeoff at LAX Friday night and spoke about Offset's recent arrest. You gotta watch the clip ... almost seems like he hints at the cops targeting the group specifically.

TMZ broke the story, Offset was busted last week in Georgia for not paying traffic tickets but the charge was later dropped after the courts realized it was a mix up on their end.
