Rap News Rundown: Big Sean, Migos, Rich Homie Quan

Big Sean and Ariana Grande trade barbs, Migos get arrested during a show, and RHQ reacts to Young Thug in this week's Rap News Rundown.

Big Sean & Ariana Grande Split Turns Acrimonious

Hip-hop's cutest couple, Big Sean and singer Ariana Grande, called it quits last week. The two released a statement blaming their hectic schedules for the split, but said they would remain close friends and perhaps reconcile in the future. But that all changed as the week progressed when sources from each star's camp blamed the other for the split.

An unidentified source close to Sean told TMZ that it was Grande's immaturity, constant insistence that he spend extravagantly and her refusal to attend his important performance at L.A.'s House of Blues, the night before the Grammys when several other A-listers made the effort to show that ended their relationship. However, someone affiliated with Ariana's team told the gossip website that it was over a controversial lyric on "Stay Down."

Migos Arrested for Drugs, Gun Possession During Concert

Migos' performance at Georgia Southern's Spring Bling concert ended early last weekend when police officers arrested all three members and their entire entourage. The trio were hit with four charges, three felonies and one misdemeanor: possession of a schedule 2 narcotic, carrying a weapon in a school safety zone, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and possession of less than one ounce of marijuana (misdemeanor).

"These discoveries were intensely concerning as the drugs and firearms had been brought to a university sponsored event where over a thousand students were congregated," said the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office in a statement, which revealed authorities searched the rap group's vehicles after detecting "a very potent smell of marijuana".

Takeoff and Quavo's bond was set at $10,000, but Offset remains behind bars with no bond due to his past convictions.

Rich Homie Quan Reacts to Young Thug's Comments

When initially asked about how he felt when Young Thug referred to him as "B**** Homie Quan" during a concert, Rich Homie Quan downplayed the incident. But when asked again during an interview on ESPN's "Highly Questionable," he admitted that hearing his one-time tour mate blast him during a concert was upsetting.

"To be honest, not to get in my feelings, it hurt," he confessed. "Not hurt as in it made me cry. Just, I would never disrespect you point blank period. Especially when we have each others' numbers. There's certain stuff you do and certain stuff you don't do."

RHQ is releasing a mixtape this week. If You Ever Think I Will Stop Going In, Ask Double R will more than likely not feature any collaborations with Thugga.
