When Migos released their debut studio album in 2015, Young Rich Nation, it lacked the infectious charisma so many of us loved on their breakout mixtapes, No Label II and YRN. However, with their latest release Culture arriving on the heels of their #1 song “Bad And Boujee”, the Atlanta rap trio have seized the moment and found their groove again. Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff, take their time on this album, mixing stacked and tricky flows with hazy melodies and unmatched ad-libs that fall off the tongue throughout the 13-track project. Similar to Future’s DS2, Culture is a body of work that can be played straight through, leaning on obvious anthems like the aforementioned “Bad And Boujee” and “T-Shirt”, along with more subtle options like the somber-trap cut “Kelly Price” with Travis Scott or the theatrical night cruiser “Deadz” with 2 Chainz.
The guys aren’t in a rush and with the help of a few of trap’s most notorious, their influential sound once again comes to life. Plus, you can’t go wrong with production from Zaytoven, Murda Beatz, and Metro Boomin.
