The Everyday Struggle crew are involved in yet another rapper confrontation. And this time, DJ Akademik wasn’t the target.

It all started with a  standard red carpet interview with Migos. The trio, never known to be the most expressive during interviews, seemed immediately on guard due to Akademik’s kicking off things by referencing the “running joke” of Takeoff being left off the group’s smash single “Bad & Boujee.” Things got more awkward as Akademik’s appeared to not hear or couldn’t make out the group’s Georgia drawl, and Budden suddenly interjected to cut the interview short.

As he left, he brushed by Offset and dropped the mic right in front of Quavo (while mouthing off, no less). As expected, the group took it as disrespect and stood up, prompting their entourage to swarm.

Fighting at award shows? Real Hip-Hop is truly back! In all seriousness, this was more posturing than anything else. Yes, I’m aware that the Migos once Superman-punched a fan from the stage, but 99% of the time rappers are not trying to get their hands dirty. The Migos’s money is a little longer these days, so they were ready to let the goons handle Budden.

Joe confirmed on Twitter this morning that his beef was indeed with the Migos and not his co-host’s questioning. Budden went on to call the trio “sassy.” Say what you want about Budden’s well-documented L’s (like the Raekwon incident), but he’s also on camera confronting folks one-on-one to resolve any tension (see Consequence).

Was Budden unprofessional? Absolutely. But you don’t watch Everyday Struggle or listen to his podcast looking for objective news. You do so because he’s unfiltered, much like Charlamagne and Star’s fanbases.

Still, being unfiltered doesn’t necessarily protect your jaw. Unless Complex cuts the security check, it might be time to start taking bets on who gets snuffed first this summer between Joe and Akademiks.



Who pissed off Royce da 5’9? The Detroit lyricist goes ballistic over the instrumentals for Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” and French Montana’s “Lockjaw.” Royce is starting off 2017 in beast mode.

With their dance craze still firmly entretched in the national consciousness, Migos have finally put together some visuals for “Look At My Dab.” It’s too bad they couldn’t get an appearance from Cam Newton, who did a lot to popularize the song with his NFL celebrations. The video is directed by Gabriel Hart.


A$AP Ferg gets the original Shabba, ATL’s Migos, and Busta Rhymes for the remix to his street anthem “Shabba Ranks.” If you already don’t care for these type of the hood jingles with random celebrities as the subject, the added guests won’t change your mind (although Busta steals the show as usual). You can buy the single HERE.

Two things. One, this video is way late. Second, if you’re going to take this long to put it out, it would have behooved the Migos crew to have the popular remix version with Drake. Makes you wonder if they were reached out and given the cold shoulder.

Young Rich Niggas can be purchased HERE.



What better way to make an album announcement than with new music? Drake has confirmed his third studio album, Nothing Was the Same, is set to drop on September 17. On top of that, Drake’s new website is up with four new tracks. And if we’re honest, all of them have quality (not big on the production for the Migos and Sampha songs). Per my age, I’m partial to the Jodeci freestyle with J.Cole.
