Check Out the Joe Budden Look-Alike in Migos’ Upcoming Video
Ever since their confrontation at the 2017 BET Awards went viral earlier this year, there is still tension between Migos and Joe Budden. Last week, the Atlanta group put out a casting call for their new music video for “Ice Tray,” where they sought to recruit a look-alike of the retired rapper, as well as his co-hosts on Complex’s Everyday Struggle, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis.
Over the weekend, Migos filmed the visuals for the Quality Control Music compilation track, which features Quavo dissing Budden and directly name-dropping him as a hater. In the photo from the video set, the look-alikes for the three hosts sit around a table just like on the actual web series. A television screen in the background reads “Old Rappers Struggling,” which plays on the original show’s title.
It looks like the diss is being taken in a light-hearted fashion, regardless, as Akademiks jokingly claims that he applied to be the look-alike for himself in the video, but was denied.
“I lowkey applied to play myself in the Migos video…and they aint pick me,” Akademiks tweets. “Shit crazy out here LOL.”
We’re not sure when the final version of the music video will be unveiled, but it looks like it will definitely stir up even more conversation on social media.
Take a look at the Joe Budden, Akademiks and Nadeska look-alike for Migos’ new video below.
