Offset clears the air following reports that he and Quavo had a physical altercation backstage at the 2023 Grammys.

As rumors begin to float around that tension still exists between Offset and Quavo, the “CODE” rapper cleared the air. New reports alleged that the two got into an altercation backstage at the Grammys, just before Quavo hit the stage to pay tribute to Takeoff. Offset took to Twitter where he flat-out denied fighting with his “brother.” “What tf look like fighting my brother [y’all] n***as is crazy,” he tweeted.

The initial reports from TMZ alleged that Quavo prevented Offset from joining him on stage during the In Memoriam segment at the Grammys. Apparently, the Recording Academy asked Offset to join Quavo during his performance of “Without You.” However, the reports alleged that Quavo blocked him from appearing on stage. From there, the two were alleged to have gotten into a physical altercation that resulted in the two of them being pulled apart from one another.

It’s been a morning filled with headaches for Offset. Not only was he subject to rumors of fighting Quavo, but he also had some words for J. Prince. During a recent interview on Million Dollaz Worth Of Game, Prince called out Offset for allegedly saying things behind the scenes. Additionally, he claimed Offset wasn’t around Takeoff while he was alive.

“You wasn’t really right there with Takeoff when he was alive,” J. Prince said. “So, for you to be taking these positions you are taking – and I got people everywhere so I hear all kinds of things. I’mma just say this to you – don’t ever put me in a position where I got to defend myself.”

‘Set quickly responded on Instagram where he called out J. Prince for doing a number of interviews in the wake of Take’s passing. He also stated that Prince doesn’t have a place to comment on his relationship with Take, either. “You speaking on my real brother. How dare one of y’all n***as speak on me and Take relationship, n***a?” he said. 

“You ain’t think about his momma? You ain’t think about the family, n***a? We ain’t said nothing,” Offset continued. “Nobody said nothing but you n***as. Who y’all n***as think y’all n***as is? John Gotti, n***a? Ain’t nobody going for none of that. I ain’t standin’ for none of that sh*t y’all n***as talkin’ about either.”
