Los Angeles, CA – Offset and Layzie Bone acquired right into a social media conflict earlier this week when the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony MC slammed the Migos rapper for claiming Migos was the best rap group ever. After a collection of posts making his case for his Bone Thugs brethren, Layzie took his grievances to TMZ the place he unloaded his frustrations.
“I’m just here to set the record straight,” he stated. “Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, we did quite a bit. To be ignored in a capability of disrespect … and it’s throughout the board proper now. It’s in R&B. It’s just like the younger guys towards the previous guys. But, actually that’s not what’s it’s about, man. It’s all the time about paying homage to the bricklayers, to those that got here earlier than us.
“No disrespect to them guys for what they doin’. All power to the people. God bless who they bless and they do possess a talent.”
As Layzie continued, he spit a line from Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s “The Message” to show Bone Thugs’ origins.
“We all know rap music, Hip Hop is based on bravado,” he defined. “You have to point out respect. How would you already know the place you goin’ should you don’t know the place you got here from? If you braggadocious in regards to the tradition, however this tradition shouldn’t be primarily based on glamor. It’s ‘broken glass everywhere, they pissin’ on the steps like they simply don’t care.’ That’s the place we from. We come from the battle, so that you gotta pay homage to who beat their fists up towards the bricks.
“You gotta know in this Hip Hop sport — that’s a verbal contact sport — you know in any situation in any profession, if you claim to be the best ever … Bone, we gonna show the world that we are that great group. We one of the greatest. We gonna kick their ass ’cause that’s what we gonna do. This ain’t about no fame or getting no pub, but when you claim the greatest, in Hip Hop, we comin’ for your neck.”
Earlier this week, Offset challenged Layzie to a “bank roll challenge,” however the Cleveland OG wasn’t having it.
“Naw nigga, that’s what’s wrong with y’all niggaz,” Layzie responded. “that’s what’s wrong with y’all niggaz. y’all think money equal respect IT DOESNT this is a SKILLS CHALLENGE me against you and my group against yours. Best group ever challenge. get yow bars up youngin. You gone need that bread for early retirement Boy.”

In an unique interview with TR1LL, Krayzie finally agreed with Layzie but in addition had an understanding on how Hip Hop acquired so far.
“I don’t believe it’s totally their fault,” he advised DX. “These new rising artists stars come from the instant/microwave era where everything is expected to happen fast. When the content of today is good, it spreads fast and the next thing you know, an artist is on tour earning money and fame. This process is responsible for the lack of understanding of what happened with respects to the building blocks of Hip Hop and R&B artists who paved the way.”
For now, Migos and Bone Thugs may need to accept ol’ customary rap battle to see who actually does have the superior abilities.
