As hip-hop lowers the countdown in its final days of 2018, tensions between two of its most notable groups are rising higher as the calendar nears 2019: Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Migos.
It all started with some hostile commentary from the Cleveland-founded group’s Layzie Bone, who grew a chip on his shoulder after the Atlanta trap trio crowned themselves the “biggest group in the world.” Offset returned Layzie’s shade afterward, followed up by his fellow ATL trapateer 21 Savage, who trashed the 44-year-old’s “Let Me Go Migo” diss record. Despite urge from fans to let the beef roll off of their shoulders, BTNH member Bizzy Bone pulled up with a gun on his instead and some warlike sentiments that were (thankfully) intercepted by police right on Instagram Live.
"Blow your motherf**king head off, n***a. Let me tell you something. Who the f**k you think you talking to? N**ga? You ain't the only n***a with guns."
He doesn’t directly name any targets for the neurotic outburst but was on the topic of addressing the controversy between the Cleveland OGs and younger Atlanta rappers prior to. He continues pressing forth warnings before someone who is off-camera can be heard informing him that police are at the door. He quickly jumps up from his seat with the weapon and exists the live session thereafter.
Layzie Bone also returned to Instagram for some (literal) fighting words for 21. He’d shoot the fair one though, he said, calling for a pay-per-view boxing match to hash out their differences. Apparently, there was also some chit-chat about his wife’s eating habits, which Layzie shut down on the Instagram Live session too. “But don’t call my wife out her name, talking about she eat pork chops and all this sh**--she don’t even eat meat.”
Let’s hope the men can come to a quick resolve (without the violence) before 2018 is up, eh?
