At the BET Awards on Sunday, a question about “Bad and Boujee” got weird.
DJ Akademiks, Joe Budden, and Nadeska Alexis were interviewing Migos pre-show for the Complex series Everyday Struggle, when Akademiks got stuck on a question to Migos’s Takeoff about whether he was left off the hit song. And then Budden ended the interview rather abruptly. And then the mood changed.
It’s just a minute-long clip, but it’s quite a journey.

Alexis and Akademiks both claimed they couldn’t hear during the interview, but the memes, they did come.

This isn’t the first time an interview got heated under Akademik’s questioning; Vic Mensa recently took him on for mocking violence in Chicago. It’s not the first time he’s gotten into it with Budden, either.

Migos was reportedly involved in an altercation with Chris Brown as well.
