Members of the Atlanta rap group Migos didn't take kindly to an abrupt mic-drop end to an interview at Sunday's BET Awards.

Actually things weren't going that great even before Joe Budden up and bolted. He, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis were conducting what became a contentious line of questioning when  Akademiks said Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball),  one of the Migos members, had been left off the hit single "Bad and Boujee."

"Do it look like I'm left off 'Bad and Boujee?'" he responded.

The mic drop and walk off followed and figurative storm clouds started to gather.

"Where's our security guard?" you can hear someone asking.

Looks like everyone moved on without further incident. Watch the clip below:
