DJ Akademiks addressed the confrontation between Migos and Joe Budden that took place at Sunday's BET Awards.
If you missed it, the Atlanta rappers and Budden had a very awkward interview on the Complex show Everyday Struggle, in which Budden abruptly walked away, angering the Migos members.

But according to Ak, Complex left out a lot of footage that would've given more context to the confrontation. He explained that Migos had a problem with Budden from the very start of the interview, which some might say has to do with his harsh criticism of Lil Yacthy, who's on the same label Quality Control.
I'm finally watching the episode.. theres hella shit missing. Joe tries to dap them up... they stare at him. Wasn't wit it.— DJ Akademiks (@IamAkademiks) June 26, 2017
QC President intervenes on the interview.. and has words. the context missing robs yall of understand why its so tense/awkward.— DJ Akademiks (@IamAkademiks) June 26, 2017
This is all before the stand up incident that is viral. It all adds why I'm the only one speaking to them. Clear it was an issue from get go— DJ Akademiks (@IamAkademiks) June 26, 2017
By the time they stand up.. shit already so tense before & during (someone intervened 2 have words).. a simple mic drop made them standup— DJ Akademiks (@IamAkademiks) June 26, 2017
Only reason I'm clearing this up.. is that this narrative bout me 'dick riding too much' or tryna play em.. is 100 % wrong. Cut it out.— DJ Akademiks (@IamAkademiks) June 26, 2017
Do you think it was smart for Joe to go from a full-time rapper to a talk show host. It seems he's making a lot more enemies now.
