Go See Migos Thursday or Play Yourself


  • A quick Google search
When Donald Glover took the stage at the 2017 Golden Globes after his FX series Atlanta won the award for best comedy, he seized the opportunity by paying respects to the city's own rap trio Migos.

By chance, your mother was likely keyed in to the Culture. Your father, too. And maybe your grandparents were watching. You sure were.

And, fact is, if you didn't take Migos seriously, you played yourself. It's okay, a lot of people didn't think they'd be around for long. But when Culture, their sophomore effort, dropped in January — that changed. Culture topped the charts, going platinum. "Bad and Boujee" became their first number one single. But Migos arrived long ago, whether you paid attention or not.

Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset hit Memphis Thursday with Future, Tory Lanes, and Asap Ferg (Ferg replaced Kodak Black on the tour. Last week, Black was found guilty on five of six accounts of violating the terms of his house arrest.).

So don't play yourself again. Go see Migos.
