Migos recently scored the No. 1 hit in the county with "Bad and Boujee" and earned their first No. 1 album with Culture, but their accomplishments have also come alongside a bit of controversy. In a recent Rolling Stone cover story, the Atlanta trio seemed to question the credibility of Makonnen, who recently came out as gay. Migos quickly issued an apology, writing, "We love all people, gay or straight and we apologize if we offended anyone."
In a new interview with TMZ, a reporter brought up the topic again, and group said that their words in the story had been taken out of context. "The way [Rolling Stone] did it, that wasn't real," Quavo said. He also reiterated statements he made in a Billboard cover story, telling the reporter, "We make great music together. I done made music with Makonnen, Frank Ocean. We all make great music. That's it."
Makonnen responded to the Atlanta trio's comments in a recent interview with The FADER. "[They said] some comments like, "World's fucked up." My world, that I was living in, was fucked up for me," he said. "I've seen a few [people online] trying to defend me against the Migos and all that shit. Guys, if you all know me, I’m always about “let's keep some peace.” It don't even matter. Migos say whatever they said. It's a misunderstanding."
