I’m telling you that at some point it stops being about knowing right or wrong and it starts to become, ‘Is it worth it?’ It 100 percent is worth it to me to let these little diva n****s know that I don’t give two f**** about none of this Migos s**t. None of this s**t.”
He added, “Y’all sitting here giving n***as y’all a** to kiss. I’m not with it. I don’t care about your super stardom. I don’t care about your success. F*** all ya’ll. Y’all can get up. Y’all do not have to sit here. I didn’t want to talk to y’all anyway.”
