Things got even more curious when the Atlanta trio dropped "Jealously" this past Monday, a new track off of their upcoming YRN 2 mixtape that many blog sites have labeled as a Chief Keef dis record.
"Like ya mama used to say, 'If the shoe fit, that's it," Quavo of Migos told MTV News on Thursday (December 12) when they stopped by the newsroom.
It all became public on December 5 when Keef sent out a tweet that read, "Heard Migos sneak dissin No Talkin." Migos member Offset responded with a now-deleted tweet that read "Will b in Chiraq Next Week Pull Up @ChiefKeef."
The ATL group responsible for 2013 rap favorites like "Versace" and "Hannah Montana" sparked tons of speculation when they dropped "Jealously" this week, with lyrics including, "Ain't never did a sneak diss/ 'Cause my hitman quick to put you on that hit list."
"Honestly, it caught us by surprise," Offset said of Keef's original tweet.
Migos mostly downplayed any notion of beef, echoing the song's hook and refusing to get into a subliminal back and forth. "You know, people gonna take it however they gonna take it and put it however they wanna put it," Takeoff added. "If you listen to the song, it's self-explanatory. If [I'mma] do one, [I'mma] say ya name to keep it 100. Ain't no need for me to be sneak-dissin'."
"We don't do no sneak-dissin'," Quavo concluded. "We make music, we get money."
