Joe Budden and Migos Nearly Come to Blows at BET Awards

An interview with Joe Budden and Migos went left Sunday after the rap trio got riled up over the “Everyday Struggle” host walking off mid-conversation.

While Budden interviewed the group with DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis after the BET Awards June 25, Akademiks asked about a “running joke” regarding Takeoff being left off Migos’ hit single, “Bad and Boujee.”

“I ain’t left off ‘Bad and Boujee,'” Takeoff says. “You think I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee’?”

After Akademiks and Takeoff clear things up, the DJ praises the group before Budden interrupts.

“All right, we gotta wrap this up, though,” Budden says.

“Well, wrap it up, then,” Quavo responds.

Akademiks and Alexis start bringing things to a close, but apparently not fast enough for Budden, who gets up, drops his microphone and walks off. Then, Migos stand up one by one, question Budden, toss their microphones and begin approaching him. The “Everyday Struggle” hosts and staff begin to intervene and the clip cuts to an off-air signal.

Budden later took to Twitter to explain why he ditched the interview.

Akademiks also explained his side of the situation.

Alexis co-signed Akademiks.

Several Twitter users poked fun at the incident.

Many people voiced disapproval of how Budden handled things.

But Budden was unbothered.

The incident with Budden wasn’t Migos’ only altercation that night. TMZ reported the trio got into it with Chris Brown’s team when they showed up to an afterparty in Los Angeles. Quavo was allegedly shoved by a member of Brown’s crew and a member of the Georgia natives’ team was allegedly punched. Afterward, Migos’ squad was captured gathering around Brown, in the bright green pants, at his car.

A compilation video surfaced on Twitter of Migos’ tense interactions between Budden and Brown.
