The most important thing to know about Migos is that they don’t stop. At all. Ever since blowing up off Drake’s “Versace” remix, they’ve stretched their 15 minutes of fame into almost half a decade of consistency, earning them the label as one of the best current hip hop groups. In recent months however, their consistency has been discarded for excellence. Earning their first number one single on the Billboard 100 with “Bad and Boujee,” their clout has never been higher. While their previous endeavors have been well received, no other project of theirs’ has been as ravenously awaited by fans as Culture. All of their previous legal and musical issues seem to have melted away, allowing Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset to ascend to their final form. Achieving chemistry unseen before in the industry, each member has held their own on recent singles and features.
On Culture, Migos seem to be assembling the trap dream team, with the tracklist boasting members of both old and new Atlanta, with veteran Gucci Mane appearing along with Lil Uzi Vert and Travis Scott. In addition to features by 2 Chainz and DJ Khaled, Migos have promised even more unlisted features. By bringing in the iconoclasts of trap in 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane, the group is truly showcasing the culture of the region on Culture. If the singles are any indication of the album as a whole, it’s safe to say people will be bumping Culture for a long time.
Whether the group will release a trap classic or not is yet to be seen, but their recent output combined with their features at least promises some undeniably smooth chemistry, captivating production, and most importantly, some of the best ad-libs one can hope for. Take a listen to the newly dropped Culture below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section.
