The rap collective Migos, best known for the song "Bad and Boujee", is accusing Delta Air Lines of racial profiling after being booted off of a plane while in route to a concert in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday, reports Variety.

A Delta spokesperson told the website that Migos repeatedly ignored crew member instructions to stow the carry-on and buckle seatbelts.

According to TMZ, Takeoff, Offset and Quavo were traveling in first class on the flight out of Atlanta and had fallen asleep. Their manager, however, told TMZ that Takeoff failed to follow instructions and place his bag in the bin because he was asleep.

The situation was apparently resolved to everyone's satisfaction, however, as Delta provided Migos with an entire plane to themselves so they could make their 10 p.m. gig in Iowa on time.

Migos nearly missed their Iowa concert on Friday, as the rap trio was removed from a Delta flight thanks to an issue with Takeoff.

Whole the plane was taxiing up to the runway, Takeoff's bag was still on the floor and that's when the pilot stopped the plane and ordered the rapper to be remove from the aircraft.

The video shows the confrontation on the jetway, and there were lots of accusations and threats of lawsuit.

The group was rebooked on an alternate flight, which is now in the air.
