Is this the end of the Migos?
On Wednesday (May 18), the Twitter account @Kurrco noticed that Offset had unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff on Instagram.
Naturally, rumors began to circulate that the close-knit rappers were disbanding, which is widely regarded as the millennial sign of a breakup of some sort.
One person tweeted, “Migos done finally split up lol damn.”
Another person typed, “Migos breaking up would be worse than the Beatles.”
“Rap is dead.
Thug was arrested, the Migos may have split up, Keed died, and what is going on this week, man? “Someone else joined the Twitter discussion.
The news of potential problems within the Migos camp comes on the same day that it was announced that Quavo and Takeoff will be releasing new music as Unc and Phew, a reference to their familial bond.
“Hotel Lobby” is the name of the song.
It is unclear whether this played a role in any resulting friction.
Previously, the trio appeared to be as close as any rap group, with all three members releasing solo albums and group projects, including Culture III in 2021.
During an interview with XXL in December 2018, the trio discussed sticking together despite working separately.
“This shit is just a showcase,” Offset said of his solo work.
“We just wanted to show the world that it is possible to do it while remaining a home team.”
But the group is for everything.”
“All of the great groups we’ve seen have never allowed their group to be what it could have been,” Quavo added.
“Nothing but us and God can stop us.”
Everything else is submerged in this water.”
XXL has reached out to a representative for the Migos for comment.

Beefs in rap that ended quickly:
T.I. vs. 50 Cent
Because of a Twitter miscommunication, 50 Cent and T.I. almost had a major feud in 2011.
“I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else, we not gon’a have no discussion about what my ole lady should’a, would’a, couda done for anything as it pertains to me,” Tip responded when 50 dropped his two cents on what Tiny should have done in Tip’s court case for 2010 drug charges.
Never one to keep his mouth shut, the Queens native responded on Twitter, saying, “don’t get emotional over your lady.”
It’ll get you into trouble you don’t want to be in.”
Soon after, a mutual friend connected 50 and Tip on the phone, and they worked out their differences.
Drake vs Common
Depending on their attitude, hugely popular rappers are almost always a target for beef, and you never know when another artist will take shots.
Common has a song called “Sweet” on his 2011 album The Dreamer, The Believer, in which he criticizes singers who are “soft.”
These are two of the most common Drake criticisms.
When pressed, Common initially implied that it could be about anyone, without explicitly stating that he wasn’t targeting Drizzy.
In January of 2012, the Toronto rapper responded in the lyrics of Rick Ross’s “Stay Schemin.”
Drake slammed Common, questioning his toughness and possibly implying that Com was upset because they both previously dated tennis legend Serena Williams.
Drizzy then threatened, “You like the fucking finish line/We can’t wait to run into you.”
Common responded over the same beat days later, but it was clear that Drake had put him away.
The two then met at the NBA All-Star Game in Orlando on Feb. 12, 2012, and again two weeks later at the Grammys, where the beef was officially put to rest.
