Atlanta rap trio Migos have had a hell of a 2014 already, with Complex naming one member, Quavo, the year's most influential rapper for his oft-imitated rhythm as the group has dropped new videos with Souljah Boy and about Emmitt Smith.

Early this morning, the crew were headed south down I-95 in Miami in a black party bus packed with eight people when someone pulled up alongside and sprayed bullets into the van. Someone inside the vehicle was hit and the party bus sped to Jackson Memorial for treatment.

Details are still sketchy about exactly what went down, but what's clear is that the Migos were hit around 3:30 a.m. by a shooter in a car that pulled alongside them. Someone in the party van fired back during the highway shootout.

"For whatever unknown reason, a vehicle drove up next to them and opened fire," Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Joe Sanchez tells NBC6. "There was an exchange of gunfire between both vehicles. The other vehicle fled and one of the passengers was struck by a bullet."

The van, parked in the ER lane at Jackson, was peppered with holes from the gunfire. "We're lucky that only one person was shot," Sanchez says.

Social media accounts from the Migos three main members -- Quavo, Offset and Takeoff -- show them partying in Miami last night but give no hint of any escalating beefs that may have led to the shoot out.

Quavo Tweeted this right around the time of the shooting:

Offset also gave some hints that trouble may have been brewing:

There's no word on who was hit in the shooting or their condition; Riptide left messages with Migos' reps in Atlanta but haven't heard back yet.

The comments on these stories always reassure me that people in this city are just as or more ignorant than the people they're attenpting to put down.

Kat Lucas, yeah the criminals seem to do that. Endanger others without regard for others. Frustrates me as well that there is nothing you can do about it except hope they don't drive up when you're commuting.

They exchanged gun fire? Um? Way to risk others lives on the road having a shoot out.
