Migos – “Real Street Nigga”

Wild-ass legal issues notwithstanding, young Atlanta rap kings Migos are still planning on releasing their proper debut LP YRN: Tha Album later this month. And judging by everything we’ve been hearing thus far, Album Migos are not going to be any different from Mixtape Migos. Possible album tracks like “Origin” and “One Time” are just… More »

Status Ain’t Hood: Classic Rap Radio Is The Best Shit Ever

When you don’t have to listen to terrestrial radio, it can be hard to get excited about it, especially if you don’t live in a big city. Charlottesville, the small Southern college town where I’ve been living for about four years now, isn’t exactly a radio hotbed. There’s one freeform community radio station that canMore »

Watch The New England Patriots And Wiz Khalifa Dance Poorly To Migos And Fetty Wap

The New England Patriots won yet another Super Bowl this past January thanks to a boneheaded call by Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. (Just hand it to Marshawn next time, cuz.) The Pats convened last night to be presented with their championship rings, and what followed was an extremely awkward dance party that will complete… More »

Migos – “I Just Wanna”

At this point, Migos are so good and so efficient at crafting ridiculously catchy street-rap bangers that they can just throw one away on some random mixtape like it’s no big deal. Their tour is postponed, one of their members is in jail, and their official debut album has been through a couple of release… More »

Migos – “On Top” (Feat. Sauce Walka & Sosamann)

Migos are releasing their official debut album YRN: The Album later this summer, but “On Top” is from a different project, HoodRich Keem’s Tweet Tape II. The track matches them up with the Houston rappers Sauce Walka and Sosamann of the Sauce Factory, who share the bouncing-off-the-walls electricity that has always been a big part… More »

Migos – “Origin” Video

Legal issues are making it a little harder to predict when we might get to hear YRN: The Album, the official debut from Atlanta rap stars Migos. But the group continues to pump out music, and now they’ve got a new track called “Origin,” with a video attached. On the song, the members of the… More »

Rich Homie Quan – “Trap House” (Feat. Offset)

Gravelly Atlanta rap crooner Rich Homie Quan just released his crazy-long solo mixtape If You Ever Think I Will Stop Going In Ask Double R less than two weeks ago, and he’s still cranking out new music. We’ve already heard his loose track “Get Better,” and now he’s teamed up with Offset, the currently-incarcerated Migo… More »

Fetty Wap – “Trap Queen (Remix)” (Feat. Azealia Banks, Quavo, & Gucci Mane)

Plenty of people idolize Fetty Wap’s exuberant druggy jam “Trap Queen,” so why shouldn’t it get a remix featuring Quavo of Migos, prolific and jail-bound Gucci Mane, and the ever-controversial Azealia Banks? “Trap Queen” is 18 months old after all, a song that rose from SoundCloud to release by Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment and currently… More »

Offset From Migos Facing Additional Charges After Jail Fight

All three members of the Atlanta rap trio Migos were arrested in the middle of a recent show at Georgia Southern University, and they had to postpone their entire upcoming tour as a result. And while group members Quavo and Takeoff got out of jail on bail, Offset has prior convictions, and he was denied… More »

Migos Postpone Tour Following Arrests

After Migos were recently arrested mid-concert at Georgia Southern University for drug and weapon possession, they have postponed their Yung Rich Nation tour.

Migos Arrested For Drugs And Guns Mid-Concert

Migos are no strangers to mid-show interruptions, but what happened during their set last night at Georgia Southern University may take the cake. TMZ reports that the cops showed up during their concert and arrested all three members of the group for felony drug possession. They were also charged with carrying a loaded gun o… More »

Migos – “Stankin” (Feat. Trinidad James)

“Versace” and “All Gold Everything” only really blew up a year apart from each other, but Migos and Trinidad James still seem to belong to two entirely different generations of up-from-underground Atlanta street-rap. Nevertheless, they sound pretty natural whenever they end up on the same track together. The combination worked on Migos Y.R.N. highlight “Out… More »

Watch Nardwuar Remind Migos Who Introduced Them To Zaytoven

Nardwuar is one of my favorite interviewers in the world because no matter who he interviews, he acts exactly the same, whether rappers known for their antics like Odd Future or feminist punk scions like White Lung. Luckily for us, both Nardwuar and Migos were at SXSW this year and met up for an interview. More »

Migos – “One Time” Video

Migos are repping the lead single from their debut album YRN Tha Album hard, and even if “One Time” doesn’t elicit the same crowd response as “Handsome And Wealthy” or “Hannah Montana,” it’s still an enjoyable track. In the Ninian Dof-directed clip the Atlanta trio recover from a wild night interspersed with some incredible stop-motion-sequence… More »

Photos: SXSW 2015

SXSW 2015 has come and gone. As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane. (We never did make it to the McDonald’s showcase, damn.) As much a… More »

Vince Staples + Migos Struggle To Connect At SXSW

In a year for hip-hop that’s this stacked, Migos need to be completely on top of their shit. And they aren’t. The Atlanta trio have had a surefire string of mixtapes, sure. And there’s absolutely no denying that the rapid-fire Migos flow has changed the way we think about the possibilities of how quick a… More »

Migos – “People’s Elbow”

Atlanta rap motormouths have a new song named after the most electrifying move in sports entertainment, and I honestly can’t imagine anything any more in my wheelhouse. “People’s Elbow” is a quick burst of silliness, one that has Quavo rhyming “People’s Elbow” with “there go Elmo,” “Donatello,” and “Bill Cosby Jell-O.” Also: “Pretty bitches show… More »

Migos – “Aight” Video

Migos changed rap, but they want you to know, rap also changed them. On the video for “Aight” the crew members take turns using stacks of money as fake phones and swinging their chains around a hotel room. The Atlanta trio’s major label debut Y.R.N. The Album is slated for release sometime this year, and… More »

Migos – “Mr. Miyagi”

The straight-to-DVD comedy Finesse looks really, really bad. It does, however, boast a soundtrack that features many of the best and brightest people from Atlanta’s absurdly fertile rap scene: Future, Rich Homie Quan, Que, PeeWee Longway. The three members of Migos all appear in the movie, and their new track “Mr. Miyagi,” which salutes a… More »
