Actually, the interview wasn’t going that well even before Budden abruptly bolted. He, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis were asking what became a contentious line of questioning when Akademiks said Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball), a member of Migos, how he felt about being left off the hit single “Bad and Boujee.”

“Do it look like I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?'” Takeoff responded.

The mic drop and walk-off shortly followed and that’s when the storm clouds started gathering, figuratively speaking.

“Where’s our security guard?” you can hear someone asking in a video of the incident.

It seems everyone moved on, though, without further incident.
