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… 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… 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.) 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 bitche… 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 salute… More »

The Week In Rap: Your Old Droog And The Corniness Question

There was a moment last year when people on the internet were convinced that Your Old Droog was really Nas in disguise. Droog released a self-titled mixtape out into the world without any previous exposure. He didn't make videos. He didn't put his picture on the cover. Indeed, there weren't any pictures of him o… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There were a couple of big high-profile videos this week from artists I like, and they had big ideas, but they didn't move me much. The video for Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds" went for a certain classicist magazine-shoot simplicity, and while Rihanna turned in a hell of a charismatic performance, the… More »

Migos – “One Time”

Migos' output can only be described in one word: prolific. It seems like every time I turn around there's a new song or mixtape from the Atlanta trio. But the release of "One Time" still feels like a special moment because it's the first single from their first actual album, Y.R.N. The Album. More »

Migos – “Cross The Country” Video

The young Atlanta rap trio Migos are the rare rap group who can maintain a giddy energy over a six-and-a-half-minute song, and the title of "Cross The Country," the opening track from the group's great new Rich Nigga Timeline mixtape, turns out to be something of an understatement. The group filmed the song's FADER-produced… More »

Migos Ridiculed For $1K High School Donation

Donating money to a high school is a noble gesture, but it's hard not to laugh at the way Migos went about it. The Atlanta rap trio and their label Quality Control Music presented $1,000 to Booker T. Washington High School on one of those giant novelty checks, commemorating the photo op on Instagram yesterday:… More »

Lil Wayne & Migos – “Amazing Amy”

Just because Tha Carter V is stuck in limbo doesn't mean that Lil Wayne can't release some side tracks on his own. He just put out his apology mixtape Sorry 4 The Wait 2, and here's some more new Weezy: a collaboration with Atlanta trio Migos. It's called "Amazing Amy" -- a GoneMore »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2014

In 2014, rap's biggest names more or less sat the year out. Kanye West never got around to releasing that populist masterwork he's been promising. Drake threw a bunch of great songs up on Soundcloud rather than compiling those songs into an LP. Jay Z went on tour with his wife but gave us no… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Migos Rich Nigga Timeline

There's been this meme floating around Twitter the past few weeks. Maybe you've seen it, and maybe you haven't. The idea is this: Migos, the excitable and inventive Atlanta rap trio, are better than the Beatles. That's it. That's the whole thing. There are thinkpieces about it and everything, but you've probably already… More »

Migos – “Hit Em”

Atlanta rap trio Migos are one of rap's big stories of 2014, thanks to their rowdy extracurricular activities and their ability to make deliriously catchy anthems like "Handsome And Wealthy." Later today, they'll release their new mixtape Rich Nigga Timeline, which follows No Label II as their second proper tape of the year. More »
