Actually things weren't going that great even before Joe Budden up and bolted. He, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis were conducting what became a contentious line of questioning when  Akademiks said Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball),  one of the Migos members, had been left off the hit single "Bad and Boujee."

"Do it look like I'm left off 'Bad and Boujee?'" he responded.
