The appropriately chilly video for Quavo and Lil Yachty's Joe Budden-dissing track "Ice Tray" has arrived. The video, directed by Millicent Hailes and Quavo, infamously features actors playing Everyday Struggle hosts Budden, DJ Akademiks, and Nadeska Alexis—though the video's version of the program has been hilariously amended to Old Rappers Struggling.
At one point in the spot-on parody, the faux Budden is seen shivering due to the objective coldness of the track:
Grab a coat and catch the full "Ice Tray" video up top.
The track appears on this month's Quality Control: Control the Streets Vol. 1 compilation. The 30-track opus also counts Ty Dolla Sign, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, and Cardi B among its featured players.
As for the inspiration behind the most recent Budden jabs sent from Yachty and Migos' direction, at least some of the riveting exchange of ideologies can be attributed to sheer boredom. "Honestly, we're not even worried about Joe," Yachty told some petulant TMZ underling who will never have a hit record of their own earlier this month. "It's almost like we're poking fun at it. We're just bored." Same.
In the wake of "Ice Tray," we can probably expect something else new from Quavo: his long-awaited collab project with Travis Scott. According to Quavo, the project—tentatively titled Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho—has been completed and should be arriving very soon.
As busy as Quavo is, let's hope he hasn't forgotten about writing a new national anthem to replace the snore-inducing "Star-Spangled Banner."
