Kendrick Perkins Confronts Quavo Over Diss Track
Quavo and Kendrick Perkins are putting their beef to bed.
The former NBA star reignited his three-year-old feud with the Migos rapper when he took a shot at him on Twitter over the weekend.
“I see @QuavoStuntin still dropping them trash a$$ bars!!! Carry on…” Perkins wrote.

The following day, Quavo responded by posting an image showing a fist emoji under Perkins’ chin. He also took the opportunity to promote Migos’ new album Culture III.
Perkins clapped back by insulting Quavo’s solo career. “Thank God you’re back with the Migos because this photoshop uppercut is as close as you’ll ever get to a hit as a solo artist! Carry on…” he tweeted.

Their beef dates back to 2018 when Quavo dissed the former Boston Celtics center on his solo album Quavo Huncho. On the track “F**k 12,” Quavo raps, “Get no playin’ time, Kendrick Perkins.”
During a 2019 interview with “Fair Game with Kristine Leahy,” the 2009 NBA Champion opened up about their heated exchange.
“I almost got into it with Quavo, ’cause he tried to put me on the song cause him and Drake real close,” Perkins said, according to Complex. “He tried to like diss me, he tried to say something like, he was talking about getting a girl’s number, and he was like, ‘no playing time, Kendrick Perkins.’ So I was like uh, no… and you need to stick to staying with the Migos and not going solo. I kinda wanted to fire back because his album flopped anyway, I mean it was trash but I was just like why are these little dudes coming after me? Like, first of all, what is your problem?”
On Thursday, Quavo and Perkins came face to face on ESPN’s “First Take.” Quavo explained the origins of his “F**k 12” lyrics, revealing that he saw Perkins get into it with Drake while watching the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors game during the 2018 Eastern Conference playoffs.
“You wanted to argue and wanted to fight. Why you want to cause so much chaos if you ain’t playing?” Quavo said. “If you ain’t playing you shouldn’t be trying to fight.”
Perkins insisted that he didn’t start the fight with Drake and addressed Quavo’s comments about him not getting play time. “When I was putting in work you probably still had Similac on your breath when I was helping the Celtics go to the Finals during that time,” he told Quavo.
The two were able to eventually resolve their issues and Quavo even said he was willing to do a song for Perkins’ sons.
“All jokes aside, it ain’t never no beef with Big Perk, man,” said Quavo. “It’s all love. It was just a bar.”
Tonight, Quavo and Migos are set to drop Culture III featuring appearances from Drake, Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Pop Smoke, and more.
