Migos – “Brokanese”
Atlanta rap superballs Migos released the ridiculously, dangerously catchy mixtape Y.R.N. earlier this year, and everything we’ve heard from Y.R.N. 2, the forthcoming follow-up, suggests that we’re looking at similar levels of weaponized catchiness. The two tracks we’ve already heard, “Emmitt Smith” and “Ran Up The Money,” spent the weekend fighting for space in our collective brain, and now they’ve followed it up with the similarly infectious “Brokanese,” named for the made-up language that the Migos do not understand. The beat, from producer Murda, sounds like a string quartet being attacked by a swarm of glitchy 808s, but the real joy, as always, is hearing the Migos’ voices ping-ponging frantically off of each other. Listen below.
Y.R.N. 2 cannot arrive soon enough.
