Album Of The Week: Migos Yung Rich Nation

Before we get started, and before you ask: Titus Andronicus’ The Most Lamentable Tragedy is a great album, one you should hear. But I already wrote about it, so I’m not going to write about it again in this space.

The entire idea of the rap album is in a weird state of… More »

Stream Migos Yung Rich Nation

There’s been a recent trend for rappers to release major-label albums that sound like slightly-tweaked version of their mixtapes. This is obviously a very good thing, and so I’m delighted to report that Migos’ long-awaited official debut Yung Rich Nation is the latest example. Back when the Atlanta trio appeared on the cover of the… More »

Young Egypt – “Can’t Believe” (Feat. Migos)

Watch Migos Perform “Hannah Montana” and “Handsome And Wealthy” With A Symphony Orchestra

Audiomack commissioned a nine-piece classical orchestra to perform a “trap symphony” featuring none other than Atlanta’s Migos. Quavo and Takeoff performed “Hannah Montana” without Offset, who is currently being held in Bulloch County Jail in Georgia, facing additional charges after the trio was arrested in April for felony drug possession.

Migos – “Spray The Champagne” Video

Migos first proper album, newly retitled Yung Rich Nation, is still set to come out later this month, and Migos aren’t going to let a little thing like the incarceration of one third of their group hold them back. One song that might wind up on the album is a typically catchy and celebratory track… More »

Migos – “Recognition”

Migos are delivering new songs at a rapid-fire pace — over just the past seven days they’ve released three bangers: “Real Street Nigga,” “Pipe It Up,” and now, “Recognition.” Still using their signature sprinkling of piano, the Atlanta collective slows things down in this ballad about searching for worldwide recognition to make “my mama smile/… More »

Migos – “Pipe It Up”

Maybe the powers of the Migos flex stronger in the summer? Their new track feels like a return to form in some ways. “Pipe It Up” will be on the joyous, frenetic Atlanta trio’s major label debut YRN: Tha Album. It’s built off an impossibly fast Migos-flow trademarked hook, burbling synthesizers, and a clean, cri… More »

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 »

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.
