Titled “Let Me Go Migo,” the track continues his social media onslaught against Offset, Takeoff and Quavo with lines such as, “Niggas is fly as flamingos but will never fly as far as wings go/This is why you won’t takeoff, they say Quavo is your boss and Offset you just look lost, get out the way and let me go.”
Toward the middle of the track, 21 Savage also feels Layzie’s wrath for defending Migos in a recent Instagram Live session.
The cover art features all three Migos members in a red and white Christmas stocking labeled “Garbage” while 21 Savage is thrown in another stocking with “Trash” across the top. Front and center is the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony OG looking like The Grinch.
The Layzie Bone versus Migos war kicked off last week after Layzie responded to Migos’ claim they were the “greatest rap group ever.” Offset fired back with a request for a “bank roll challenge,” but Layzie insisted on a skills challenge.
Krayzie Bone weighed in on the matter in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX earlier this month and explained why it seems there’s a lack of respect for Hip Hop’s pioneers.
“The music industry is a completely different system [today],” he said. “There is no set pay structure or levels of preparation and growth, therefore an artist with a social media account and the desire to be famous can skip steps, break all rules and have no consequence or true standards in place to follow.
“It’s a wild, heartless culture and in the end the artists suffer. There is an epidemic of wanting to be famous rappers and artists for the wrong reasons. It’s not about the culture any longer. It’s all about the novelty of flash, hype, sex, drugs, etc. Ignorance and lack of empathy is now at an all time high.”
