Migos…They’re an unstoppable force at this point. After getting shouted out by Mr. Donald Glover at the Golden Globes, their smash hit Bad and Boujee Feat. Lil Uzi Vert went number one which led to the group being able to perform on Jimmy Kimmel last week, but that was just the start. Last night it became official. We live in Migos’ America, and that’s alright.
I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like that’s the best song ever. – Donald Glover
Last night the winds changed. Birds that had migrated to the south for the winter felt a heat coming from L.A, causing them to change their flight patterns. Donald Trump sat at his table in his evil lair crying into his tiny hands because he realized that, while he may become president tomorrow, the country will never be his. Nope. The country that we all call home was taken over by the Migos last night as they invited everybody and their mother on stage to perform Bad and Boujee with them.
Chance, 2 Chainz, Yg, Yachty, Ty Dolla, shit they even brought out part of the Lakers players Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson. In a split second they went from hip-hop collective to the most powerful three people in the world.
At first glance this seems like I might be overreacting. “Oh cool so a rap group brought out some rapper friends to go crazy to their most popular song. Okay.” But the fact of the matter is that I’m under-reacting. They didn’t just bring out their rapper friends, they brought out the biggest names in hip-hop. Chance dropped one of the best albums of 2016, Yachty is King of the Teens, Ty Dolla is one of the most influencial vocalists of our generation, YG led created a country wide anthem in Fuck Donald Trump.
It’s also crazy because their rise to fame kind of came out of nowhere. Yeah, Migos has managed to stay relevant over the past couple of years, but things seemed have been going downhill since Hannah Montana and Versace. They looked to be on pace to be just another one hit wonder so to speak.
Everybody was wrong. They’re not just-another-trap-group-from-the-south. They’re taking over, dropping number one songs and getting compared to The Beatles. It’s time we stop trying to put Migos in a box because if they’ve proved anything it’s that they can do whatever they want to do.
