Earlier this week TMZ reported that Migos had gotten into it with Sean Kingston in Vegas — over Soulja Boy no less — but Kingston quickly took to Instagram Live and tried to play the altercation off. After all, it was a member of his crew who took out a gun and fired a single shot into the air. Migos were not charged in the situation, though police apparently would “like to talk to them,” to which I once again reply: “same.”
Now, Kingston has spoken to a local Vegas news affiliate, 8 News NOW, about the situation. He, uh, tries to clarify some things:
“You see my face, there was no beat down, it was none of that,” Kingston said. “It was a jump, but it wasn’t a JUMP. You get what I’m saying,”
Apparently, Kingston’s best friend Mioses Johnson was the one who pulled the gun and fired one shot during the altercation, and he is now facing felony charges for that. No one was hurt from the incident but a felony? Our system is very broken.
Kingston added that he’d been tricked into meeting up with the group, who launched a surprise attack:
We went out there thinking we were going to have a conversation,” Kingston said. “They face timed me, ‘yo come outside let’s talk. Man, I miss you let’s chalk it up.’ You know what I’m saying? And as soon as I went outside it was no talking. They just started jumping on me throwing punches. I didn’t have a chance to put up my set up or do nothing.”
Furthermore, Kingston called the altercation “shocking,” and said he was unsure why the incident took place.
“It was very shocking because no matter what goes on it is kind of like I’ve been to their house they’ve been to my house,” he said. “My mom has cooked for them. We don’t do industry friends. It’s either you’re rocking with us or you ain’t rocking with us — period. I’m hearing different stories. I’m hearing it has something to do with Soulja Boy. He was at my house. I said something in a video they didn’t like.”
And, Kingston defends his friend and spreads love to Vegas.
“He held the situation down,” Kingston said. “He wasn’t trying to hurt nobody or trying to do anything. To everybody in Las Vegas, we love Las Vegas. Sean Kingston is about unity and feel good music and spreading the love.”
