Layzie Bone breaks down where his beef with Migos stems from.
The ongoing debate between old vs. new hip-hop reached a new height recently in both R&B and hip-hop. The disrespect the young generation has towards their OGs isn't anything new, but let's be honest, it seems to be getting a tad out of hand. Earlier this week, Layzie Bone refuted Migos' claim that they're the biggest group in the world. Offset layer chimed in and essentially clowned Layzie Bone over finances. Layzie Bone recently sat down and explained this has nothing to do with money and has everything to do with respect.
Layzie Bone recently sat down with TMZ to "set the record straight." The legendary Bone Thugs member explained that he finds the Migos talented, but they haven't shown any respect towards those who paved the way for them.
"Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, we did a lot. To be overlooked in the capacity of disrespect, you know, and it's all around the board right now," he said. "It's like the young guys versus the old guys, but really, that's not what it's about. It's about payin' homage to the bricklayers. To the ones that came before us."
He acknowledged the fact that rap music is based on bravado, but ultimately, it all boils down to respect.
"We come from the struggle. It's a struggle to this so you gotta pay homage to who beat they fists up against the bricks," he said. "Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, we gon' show the world we are that great group. We one of the greatest. We gon' kick they ass because that's what we gon' do."
