Not much has been said or confirmed by any member of the group following the split. However, Quavo did allude to the alleged affair between Offset and Saweetie while speaking on the Big Facts podcast.
The rapper said: “We want to see our career as a duo. We came from a loyal family that’s supposed to work together and you’re supposed to stick together, but sometimes when s**t don’t work out, it’s not meant to be.”
“We stand on loyalty and sometimes that s**t ain’t displayed. Right now we gon’ be the duo till time tell.”
