The untold truth of Migos
Reporters on the receiving end of some of Migos’ most cringey interviews would agree they’re not the easiest to deal with. For example, during their chat with NME, the writer noted the “T-Shirt” artists were “five hours late” to the interview. “It’s a miracle. But like herding particularly baked cats, much wrangling has to take place in order to get them onto a sofa to talk,” the writer reported.
And then, there was the time they cut an interview short mid-sentence with Dana Cortez after she asked Offset a question about his on-stage wedding proposal to fellow rapper Cardi B. And how could we forget the on-air standoff that occurred between the group and rapper Joe Budden during an interview with Everyday Struggle on the 2017 BET Awards red carpet? Takeoff became utterly ticked off when the co-host, DJ Akademics, asked him what it felt like to be left off the group’s most successful single, “Bad and Boujee.”
“Do it look like I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?'” he asked defiantly. Budden, who was noticeably frustrated during the entire segment, stated, “Alright we gotta wrap this up though,” before dropping his microphone and walking away from the camera’s view. This escalated to a brief altercation that threatened to ruin everyone’s night before security jumped in to save the day. Budden later justified his actions, saying the group’s attitude during the interview was too “sassy” for him in a since-deleted tweet (via Metro).
