I LOVE HIP HOP TV
Ever since their famous confrontation at the 2017 #BET Awards earlier this year, there is still tension between #Migos and #JoeBudden. Last week, the Atlanta group put out a casting call for their new music video for "Ice Tray," where they sought to recruit a look-alike of the retired rapper, as well as his co-hosts on Complex's Everyday Struggle, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis.
Over the weekend, Migos filmed the visuals for the Quality Control Music compilation track, which features a diss lyric from Quavo towards Budden that directly name-drops him as a hater. In the photo from the video set, the look-alikes for the three hosts sit in a semi circle around a coffee table just like on the actual web series. A television screen in the background reads "Old Rappers Struggling," which plays on the original show's title.
It looks like the diss is being taken in a light-hearted fashion, regardless, as Akademiks jokingly claims that he applied to be the look-alike for himself in the video, but was denied. "I lowkey applied to play myself in the Migos video...and they aint pick me," Akademiks writes. "Shit crazy out here LOL." We're not sure when the finalized version of the music video will be unveiled for fans and the music community, but it looks like it will definitely stir up even more conversation on social media.
