Migos Addresses Chief Keef Diss Speculations

Group member Quavo tells MTV News "if the shoe fits" in reference to "Jealousy" and Chief Keef.

With the release of their track “Jealousy” earlier in the week, it seems that the three-man Atlanta group Migos has taken their recent Twitter tift with Chicago rapper Chief Keef to the recording booth.

The sly disagreement between the parties began last week with a series of now mostly deleted Tweets from both sides. Chief Keef, who is signed to Interscope Records in conjunction with 1017 Brick Squad, Tweeted first with an accusation that the Atlanta group was engaging in an indirect diss against him. “Heard Migos sneak dissin No Talkin,” he wrote. Migos responded by downplaying the possibility the same day in a separate Tweet. “Migos don’t sneak diss and don’t entertain bullshit. We entertain money,” they wrote alongside the hashtags “YRN2” and “QC.” Migos member Offset also let off a perceived threat to the Chicago rapper with his now deleted Tweet that the group “Will b in Chiraq Next Week Pull Up @ChiefKeef.”

The Twitter exchange took place throughout last Friday (December 6) and Migos released the “Jealousy” track from their upcoming mixtape, “YRN (Young Rich Niggas) 2” this past Monday (December 9). With some sources citing the song as a continuation of the rift between the group and Chief Keef, the Atlanta trio addressed the possibility yesterday (December 12) in an interview with MTV News.

When asked if “Jealousy” was directed at Chief Keef, group member Quavo quoted a phrase he suggested one might hear from a parent. “I mean, like your Momma used to say, if the shoe fits,” he said, “that’s it.” Group member Takeoff told the network that the song was up for interpretation. "You know, people gonna take it however they gonna take it and put it however they wanna put it," he said. Quavo also spoke to the song more specifically with remarks that fans and other artists would know if it was a diss. "If you listen to the song, it's self-explanatory,” he said. “If [I'mma] do one, [I'mma] say ya name to keep it one hundred. Ain't no need for me to be sneak-dissin’...We don't do no sneak-dissin'.”

Speaking to the origin of the confrontation, Offset added that the first Tweet from Chief Keef was unexpected. “Honestly, it caught us by surprise,” he said. Reiterating the sentiment expressed on their own collective Twitter page, Quavo also said “we make music, we get money” in reference to the disagreement. Video of the segment can be streamed below.

On “Jealousy,” the hook plays on the phrase “sneak diss” and finds the group alluding to a more violent confrontation. “I ain’t never did a sneak diss / Call my hitman quick to put you on the hit list,” they rap. Later in the song, Offset seems to address Chief Keef’s accusations more directly. “Fuck nigga, you saying we dissing? / Mistletoe chopper, them bullets come kissing / Don’t enter Atlanta without no permission / Leaving’em stanking like chitlins.” The song can be streamed below via HipHopDX.

Migos gained popularity locally last year with hits like “Bando” and earlier this year with “Fema.” The group built on their success with their most popular song to date, “Versace.” Migos is currently preparing their “YRN 2” mixtape for a January release.
