Migos, the American hip-hop trio starring Quavo, Offset and Takeoff have returned to the mainstage with their new album, “Culture II.”
On Jan. 26 Migos released their third studio album. The new album was previewed with three singles: “Motorsport,” “Stir Fry” and “Supastars.” Both “Motorsport” and “Stir Fry” are featured on the Billboard Hot 100.
“I love [“Motorsport”]. Quavo is great in it and Cardi B and Nicki Minaj bring a surprisingly really nice touch to it,” Kevin Rabacs ’19 said.
Out of all 24 songs on the album, “Walk it Talk it” is arguably the best track on the playlist. Featuring Drake, and having an excellent beat in the background, it results in a future chart-topper for Migos.
Another great song on the album is, “Notice Me” featuring Post Malone. Malone plays a magnificent role in this track as he slows the tempo down and gives a strong and powerful chorus. Although “Notice Me” is much slower and isn’t the type of hip-hop one has come to expect from listening to Migos, it’s different, which is good.
“White Sand” is another collaboration that is extremely popular from the trio’s new album. While, the track sounds exactly like any Migos song (fast paced rap), it is even better because it features rap superstars Travis Scott and Big Sean.
“I think Travis Scott featuring brings a whole new dynamic,” Jake Thaw ’20 said. “When Scott has good lyrics, he’s one of the best rappers out there which makes this song my favorite on the album.”
Since the album includes 24 songs on the playlist, there are bound to be a few that are less than impressive. “Made Men” and “Flooded” are two songs that make this list. “Made Men” is too slow and includes weird sound effects in the background. As for “Flooded,” Quavo, Offset and Takeoff seem to be whispering through the entire song.
At the end of the day, though, no album will be perfect. Migos definitely deserve lots of props for “Culture II.” Don’t be surprised to see this album on the Billboard charts and potentially at next year’s Grammy awards.
