In 2016, we witnessed a Migos takeover and Culture is just the beginning. They have proven that they are able to create innovative and catchy phrases that will one day line the walls of the Trap Hall of Fame. From “Versace, Versace Medusa head on me like I’m ‘lumanati” being blasted across all hoods and suburbs alike in 2013, to “Look At My Dab” bringing the dab craze into the mainstream and finally to “Bad and Boujee” taking center stage at the 2017 Golden Globes and since then going PLATINUM… it’s no secret that Migos is here to stay. They have become true music influencers, from trap to pop, they have brought their North Atlanta swag, vocab and dances along with them as they climb to the top of the charts.
Currently holding the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Bad and Boujee” and fighting for the number one album spot with Culture, it is safe to say that through their years of work and determination, Migos is far from a one-hit wonder. Their three distinct yet wonderfully blending sounds have continued to grow as has their repertoire of countless mesmerizing beats courtesy of Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Nard & B and Murda Beatz to name a few.
Culture has a number of hard-hitting instant trap classics such as “T-Shirt”, “Bad and Boujee”, “Call Casting” and “Culture” as well as some key collaborations with fellow ATL Natives 2 Chainz (“Deadz”), Gucci Mane (“Slippery”) and trap crooner Travis Scott (“Kelly Price”). While this album on one hand gives Migos fans all of the elements that they have followed and loved for years it also has a little bit of something for everyone, blending in melodic tracks such as “Out Yo Way”. Bottom Line: Migos have proven that they are not here to play games, that they will not be characterized as one-hit wonders ever again and that they do it for the culture.
