Migos are on track to having their first top 10 album with Culture. During a round of press runs, the trio sat down with Ebro on Beats 1 to talk about their second wind they’ve hit with this album and their first number one single “Bad & Boujee.”
Ebro asks about their connection with Drake, who put the group on the map in 2013 when he hopped on their buzz single “Versace.” In the above clip, Quavo remembers watching a video of Drake and DJ Drama debating who was on the come-up more, Migos or Rich Homie Quan.
“Drama was trying to tell him that Rich Homie Quan is the new thing. In the video, he’s like ‘Nah man have you heard Migos though?’” Quavo stated. “When I seen that, I knew he wanted to work with us but we never met him ’til we got to Birthday Bash. And ever since then, I sent him two or three records. He wanted to get on ‘Pronto’ or ‘Versace’ and I just sent him ‘Versace.’”
The trio also spilled about the flows and cadences that they popularized, Quavo said it’s hard for him to find inspiration with so many people copying their style. “I’d rather other artists find they own self,” he says. “I want to see what you do, find yourself. Maybe I can learn something from you that I can put in my music. I haven’t been a fan because we all sound the same.” Offset talks about being in jail during the group’s rise.
