They are well known for their hit song Versace which was remixed by numerous artists. The official remix was done with Drake, but one of all the remixes, Chicago Rapper ‘Lil Herb’s’ remix is often regarded as the best. Though the rap group is young, they have collaboration with some of the industry’s biggest stars which includes Trinidad James, ASAP Ferg, Travis Scott, Chief Keef, Juicy J, Twista, B.oB., Busta Rhymes, Riff Raff, R. Kelly, Gucci Mane, and Drake among others. Their present manager is Coach K whom used to manage both Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy. The group often work with Zaytoven whom is a producer at Gucci’s 1017 Brick Squad label.
Chief Keef Beef
The beef started after Migos released their track ‘Brokanese’, Chief Keef, owner of GBE and member of the Black Disciples gang thought the song was sneak dissing him, so he went on twitter to call out Migos by tweeting “Heard Migos sneak dissin No Talkin,”. No one is certain to what exactly the sneak diss was, but it’s widely believed it’s this line from their song Brokanese “Not often, it’s everyday payday, my diamonds looking like K-K (White!)”. If this line is indeed the sneak diss, it would seem that it’s a big misunderstanding on Chief Keef’s part, it looks as if he confused Migos saying K-K in reference to the KKK’s white clothing, for his daughter who’s named Kay-Kay.
Though it might have been a misunderstanding, neither camp is backing down. After Chief Keef tweeted “Heard Migos sneak dissin No Talkin”, Offset, the Migos group member whom said the line that started the feud tweeted “Will b in Chiraq Next Week Pull Up @ChiefKeef”. Capo, a member of GBE joined the beef and tweeted “@MigosATL We Gone Pull Up Knockin doors off Dem Cars Yall ain’t Really from the Streets Industry Ass N*ggas All 3 of Y’all”. Ballout, another member of GBE took shots at Migos in his song ‘Going In’ saying “Let me see a Migo, I’ma reach for my Desert Eagle.” Migos soon released a dissed track of their own titled ‘Jealousy’ in which they took shots at GBE and Chief Keef by saying “I ain’t never did a sneak diss/Call my hit man quick to put you on the hit list/ I guess they man cause we young and rich/I guess they mad cause we f*cked they b*tch.”
The beef is still ongoing with no sides showing any sign of waving peace.
Migos Vs 2G Beef
On June 11, 2014, Paris Brown, a fan of Migos, was murdered while at a gathering with the group. Police later learned that the fan was not the target of the shooting, and that one of the Migos (Offset) was the intended target. Police later arrested Cory Marzette after identifying him as one of the 2 gunmen seen in a video tape of the shooting. Authorities claim Marzette is an affiliate of the rap group 2G whom they believe was behind the murder plot.
