Migos members Quavo, Offset and Takeoff seem hesitant to outright call themselves the best thing hip-hop has to offer, but they wouldn't mind if everyone else gave them the label. In a cover feature for NME magazine, the Atlanta trio talk about their place in the rap game.
‘Culture III’ Could Bring Migos To The Highest Of Heights
Basking in the success of their new Culture III album, Migos shed some light on their underdog mentality despite having two previous No. 1 albums under their belt. Culture III is sitting at No. 2 following its release earlier this month, but Quavo expects their latest project to solidify Migos as “the greatest rappers alive.”
“We influenced everything going on right now, from pop to country and, of course, hip-hop. But I’ve even heard it on pop music – and they be in denial. Every time we do sum’n’, we see it but they ain’t gon’ give us credit because they might have added a little seasoning salt or a little pepper.” (Quavo)
Cardi B Drops Another Homemade Migos Video
If Takeoff is the “third Migo” (according to Drake), then hip-hop superstar Cardi B must be the fourth. Offset’s wife has been working harder than a starving publicist to promote the Migos’ new Culture III album, dropping another homemade video for their song “Jane.”
“PICK A COLOR ♥️💙💜💗💛💚 Song: JANE Culture III” (Cardi B)
Cardi B Does Her Own ‘Type Sh*t’ Video
Cardi is doing her part as a supportive wife. To help promote Culture III for her husband, the Grammy-winning artist used her massive social media platform to record a homemade video for the Migos song “Type Sh*t.”
“All these verses I done slayed, all these looks that I done gave / Could have let these f*ck hoes drown, but I let them ride my wave”
