The Atlanta rap trio Migos has been consistently dropping hits over the past few years gaining major recognition and landing a number one spot on Billboard hot 100 with their song “Bad and Boujee.” Finally their highly anticipated sophomore album Culture has dropped as of January 27th 2017
Migos, which consists of family members Quavo, Takeoff and Offset; have risen from the ranks of basement mix tapes to studio albums that have positioned them at the top of major music charts, including iTunes and Billboard. The group made huge breaks in the hip hop community after their hit song “Versace” which featured Drake landed 69th on Rolling Stones 100 best songs of 2013. Since then, Migos has shown no signs of slowing down anytime soon, actually quite the opposite.
This past Friday (27/01/2017) Migos dropped their highly anticipated sophomore studio album Culture with hit singles “Bad and Boujee” and “T-Shirt, which have been climbing music charts in the recent weeks. Culture brings with it impressive features from DJ Khaled, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott and Lil Uzi Vert, who all fit in with the tracks as opposed to sounding like their feature was simply thrown in. Migos has the ability to create a sort of natural chemistry with other artists instead of overshadowing or being over shinned. The mix of melodic and heavy beats creates the perfect backdrop for the seamless clever rhymes that made Migos famous in the first place.
Migos have created Culture by sticking to their roots with classic ad lib’s and anecdotal lyricism while positioning themselves in a more mature and concrete way. While their songs don’t exactly stray from their usually topics, it comes across as more polished and confident than their earlier mix tapes. Culture provides the original hype that any Migos song brings with the added benefit of experience gained by working with almost everyone in the hip hop industry.
One thing is for sure, with their ever rising success Migos is showing no signs of slowing down.
