Migos and Joe Budden Nearly Come to Blows at 2017 BET Awards
All hell nearly broke loose at the 2017 BET Awards, and it would have been unleashed by the exquisitely stylish Migos, who nearly came to blows with rapper and Everyday Struggle co-host Joe Budden. You can see the video below.
The exchange that led to the near-scuffle began with Everyday Struggle co-host DJ Akademiks asking Takeoff how it felt not having a verse on "Bad and Boujee," which stands as the rap trio's biggest hit to date. Akademiks described the absence of a Takeoff verse on the track being a running joke and Takeoff wasn't having it.
“You said I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?’ Does it look like I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?’" Takeoff said to Akademiks. It's at that point the collective tension becomes palpable. Never one to back down, Budden quickly told Akademiks to "wrap up" their interview questions, to which Quavo responded, "Wrap it up then."
A few moments later, Budden chucked his microphone to the ground and walked away from the set of his interview. Quavo, Offset and Takeoff quickly rise from their chairs one after the other in a scene that looked so well choreographed, it could've been from Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2.
Quavo can be heard saying, "What you trying to do?" clearly taking offense as he and the rest of his clique prepare for fisticuffs. We see someone who appears to be a member of the Migos' entourage, perhaps DJ Durel, pop into the scene a few seconds later, but security steps in to break up the would-be scuffle within moments. Disaster averted.
This near rapper versus rap media battle would have been a fitting addition to a super eventful night for the Atlanta rap group, which also took home the Best Group trophy at the awards show. After the show, the crew was allegedly involved in a confrontation with Chris Brown.
Apparently, one of C. Breezy's crew members pushed Quavo after the awards show, and Migos' people got punched as soon as they entered the fray. Quavo is rumored to be dating C. Breezy's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, and it's been reported Breezy wasn't happy about it.
In any case, peep Budden's near scuffle with Migos below.
