Migos has been on top of the world since the turn of the year.
After laying claim to their first chart-topping single with ‘Bad & Boujee,’ the success of the viral tune helped boost its parent album – ‘Culture’ – to the top of the Billboard 200 (where it can be found this week). But, as many-an-act can tell you, there’s no high that can’t come to a swift end thanks to a PR disaster. And, if the recent Twitter response to some controversial comments made by the Atlantan trio is any indication, they could be headed in that negative direction.
That’s right, after Rolling Stone magazine highlighted the rappers’ newfound success, the ‘Fight Night’ emcees took time to weigh in on singer/rapper ILoveMakonnen‘s recent decision to come out the closet:
“Damn Makonnen!” said Quavo, seemingly surprised at the support his “Whip It (Remix)” co-star received. “They supported him?” Offset, another group member, added: “That’s because the world is fucked up.” Takeoff, the third group member, chimed in: “This world is not right.
“We ain’t saying it’s nothing wrong with the gays,” says Quavo. But he suggests that Makonnen’s sexuality undermines his credibility, given the fact that “he first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that.”
He frowns. “That’s wack, bro.”
