Culture II (iTunes)
A 24-track Migos album is a rite of passage for a Hip-Hop lover. It’s like a triathlon for a runner. It’s a long, strenuous process that most people wouldn’t subject themselves to in one go, but those who do, honey, they are strong.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the three blind mice of rap, otherwise known as the Migos. They exploded onto the scene back in the early 2010s with their harmonious melodies and eccentric, ad-lid drenched flows. It was different and many people were drawn to their fresh perspective, myself included.
Over half a decade later, Migos is one of the biggest groups on the planet. They now get nominated for Grammys, create culturally significant singles (most notably, “Bad and Boujee“), and make incredible brand deals like this hilarious Apple’s Animoji collab that you’ve probably already seen on your Instagram feed.
