The effects of an interview gone completely wrong with Atlanta’s trap trio Migos and a co-host of the Everyday Struggle trio Joe Budden at the 2017 BET Awards are still following both parties around even days after the Sunday (June 25) incident.
Now that the trio have returned to their own studio home at Complex, the “Pump It Up” emcee is following up with some brash commentary for Quavo, Takeoff and Offset as well.
Leading their list of subject matters for the day, the hosts addressed the tumultuous interview on the gray carpet and gave more insight into how the tension ended up boiling over. When DJ Akademiks told Uncle Joe that he felt his actions were “unprofessional” and “disrespectful,” however, Budden didn’t oppose. But, nor did he apologize for his actions either.
“I’m not saying it wasn’t wrong, my behavior,” Budden begins at the 14:35 mark. “I’m not saying it wasn’t disrespectful. It was. I’m telling you that at some point it stops being about knowing right or wrong, and it starts to become, ‘Is it worth it?’”
Dubbing the trio as “little diva n**gas,” he added that he was not a part of the Culture artists’ hip-hop wave, let alone here to support any of their rap career run thus far.
“I don’t care about your success,” Joe declared. “F**k all of y’all. Y’all can get up. Y’all do not have to sit here. I didn’t want to talk to y’all anyway.”
The New Jersey native isn’t the only one involved with choice words to add to the post BET Awards brawl, however. TMZ caught up with Offset for his take on the unfolding of events where he chopped it up to “n**gas just hating,” but anyone with Migos beef “don’t want no smoke.” That included Chris Brown, who was circumstantially placed in the post-interview scuffle while standing relaxed on the side of his car.
