Joe Budden In Migos Of The Confrontation: "It Was A False Sense Of Entitlement"
"I'm not going to sit while three young men give me that ass to kiss."
Venice, CA – This past summer, Joe Budden was involved in one of the most talked about (and entertaining) verbal jarring of the year with the Migos in the 2017 BET Awards during an episode of the Complexes of the Fight all day. It was an altercation that almost turned physical as the Migos got up to their time, dropping their microphones to the ground after Budden abruptly walked in the middle of the interview.
Budden seemed visibly upset after DJ Akademiks asked to take Off about why he was left out of his platinum-selling single "Bad & Boujee."
"Do you think that was out of 'Bad & Boujee'?" The take-off asked a few times as Akademiks struggled to understand the Migos member of the answer through the noise and his thick Atlanta accent. Budden was on him and I was asked by Ak to wrap.
While many came up with their own reasons as to why Joey felt the need to leave during the middle of his live interview — something HipHopDX Editor-in-Chief Trent Clark had experienced in himself — VICELAND offers the Slaughterhouse constituent the opportunity to expand on his reasons why he thought his actions were appropriate.
"My ethics and my morals, however, again," Budden says in a clip of The Therapist. "I'm not going to sit while three young men give me that ass to kiss."
"It was a false sense of entitlement from these three gentlemen, while my newbie co-host and my moderator is going to sit down with him, I don't. I was behind the scenes saying: why are we talking about with these people? I am franco, I am insensitive, I'm not filtered, I am not censored. Things could go left."
