If you can’t properly pronounce XXXtentacion, it may be OK to just say “drama” at this point. He’s currently awaiting trial on grisly domestic abuse allegations, but he still can’t find a way to lie low — even after claiming he was done with rap and pledging to donate money to domestic violence organizations. It seems like every time the mercurial Florida artist’s name is trending, it’s for controversy. Today is no different, as he took to Instagram to announce that he was jumped by the Migos’ entourage outside his hotel in LA.
He alleges in a series of Instagram posts that members of the Migos’ crew pointed a gun at him, his girlfriend, and a friend. And while he said in the initial video that he wanted to handle the issue “like a man,” presumably meaning he was taking the high road, he went on to make an odd post toward Migos member Offset’s fiance Cardi B, call Migos member Takeoff a “pussy,” and tell the group to “be careful.”
Though there’s no conclusive footage or proof that the Migos had anything to do with putting the visible red marks all over XXX’s face, the 17 artist posted a short video of Takeoff walking up steps with what looks to be a security guard amid a commotion. Curiously, XXX refers to him as “liftoff” in the caption to his post, yet tagged his @yrntakeoff Instagram account.
If the Migos did get into an altercation with XXXtentacion, it’s likely retribution for XXX previously calling Offset out of his name and saying his “career was over” – even as the Migos enjoy the height of their success to the point that Offset’s in Saturday Night Live parodies.
XXX must now realize that the Migos are doing well for themselves, as he’s threatening to sue the group – shortly after almost threatening to knock them out.
