Southside and G Herbo incurred significant censure within the realm of social media in the wake of their participation in Funny Marco “Open Thoughts” podcast, which transpired on the fifteenth of October. In the course of the episode, the comedic luminary found himself subjected to a series of vehement verbal salvos, including a rather blunt admonition from the Chicago-based rapper, imploring him to “cease articulation,” while concurrently branding him as “absurd” on multiple occasions.
The host took to the domain of Facebook on the following day, the sixteenth of October, to elucidate the prevailing situation. “I acknowledge the widespread perturbation manifesting itself in response to the interview,” Marco articulated. “Although I experienced a measure of vexation during its unfolding, I am acutely aware of my professional obligations. Allow me to emphasize that I hold the dignified principle of extending due respect to my guests in the highest regard. It was not my intention to reciprocate or conform to the invective.”
Furthermore, Marco disclosed that his horological ornament, appraised at a princely sum of $30,000, had sustained injury in the course of the aforementioned confrontation. Notwithstanding the editing that transpired with respect to the official video, DJ Akademiks opted to disseminate a supplementary, unreleased footage, on the seventeenth of October. This commentary, in and of itself, contributed to the escalating tension and elicited an immediate rejoinder from Southside.
The maestro of beats, grounded in Atlanta, took to Instagram Live to offer a rebuttal. “The gentleman in question exhibited no trepidation whatsoever. In the event that he harbored sentiments of fear, I extend my condolences, albeit I find myself without the ability to influence the nature of his upbringing, for which his maternal progenitor is ultimately responsible. This is the primary reason for my abstention from this medium. As it appears that my actions invariably cast me in the role of the malevolent antagonist,” Southside asserted.
He proceeded to launch an additional critique against the host of the podcast. Insinuating that the latter had been seen in possession of a counterfeit timekeeping device. “Marco, I currently possess a wristwatch, the veracity of which you may personally validate. I proffer an invitation for your immediate acquisition of this timepiece. Contact me at your earliest convenience, for the watch in my possession is authentic. As opposed to the spurious and deceptive horological device that I previously discarded. The latter was, indeed, an imitation of the genuine article. A fact of utmost significance,” declared the co-founder of 808 Mafia.
Notwithstanding the acrimonious exchange of words, Southside did extend a rather ambivalent form of apology. “Should the individual in question have been subjected to discomfort. Let it known that our intentions not oriented towards this end. To the contrary, we wish to express our regrets to Marco for any disquiet that may have transpired. Although it should noted that this does not alter the characterization of his demeanor as distinctly unsatisfactory. In closing, I propose that he maintain a certain spatial distance from my person,” he intimated.
