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. Overall, the time they spent talking to the wacky Canadian journalist is probably more interesting than their set at SXSW was.
Since Nardwuar always does his research, he caught the guys unaware a few times, reminding them who first introduced them to Zaytoven (OJ Da Juiceman), bringing up Quavo’s quarterback past, and gifting them with some Slick Rick. But as always, that’s just the tip of the iceberg in the 11-minute-plus interview, so watch it below.
Migos’ major label debut YRN Tha Album is out 6/16 via Quality Control Music/300.
