2 Chainz And Migos Are Trading Jabs Over Who Started The ‘Migos Flow’

The Atlanta rappers go back-and-forth on Twitter.

Imitiation is nothing new in hip-hop. From rhymes to fashion to production, styles are often innovated by someone before catching on with a larger group. It’s become a natural cycle.

2 Chainz thinks that’s what happened with what’s been termed the “Migos flow,” where rhymes are delivered with a specific pace and cadence.

“Look at my car, how did it get on dem sixes/ This flow come from Drizzy, he got it from Migos, they got it from Three Six,” the Atlanta MC raps on “Trap Back,” off his recently released Freebase EP.

But that line shouldn’t be taken as a slight, according to Chainz; it’s merely an observation. “There’s a certain delivery that they brought to the game that people started snacking on, that was something that derived from a Memphis flow period,” he told MTV News when asked about the lyric.

That explanation apparently wasn’t enough for the guys from Migos, though, who took to Twitter on Wednesday to fire back, which led to a bit of a back-and-forth:

There haven’t been any words exchanged since earlier this morning, so hopefully this disagreement has been squashed.
