Together for a decade now, it wasn’t until 2016 that Hip Hop trio Migos became legitimate superstars.
Group members Quavo, Offset and Takeoff grew up together in a suburb near Atlanta and released a pair of mixtapes at the start of the 2010s before their first widely-released single, “Versace,” broke through after receiving love from everyone from Justin Bieber to Drake, who did a remix of the track.
The group kept the buzz alive with debut album 3 Way and more mixtapes, becoming heavyweights in the Hip Hop world. But in the fall of 2016, Migos’ single “Bad and Boujee” blew up and went to No. 1 on the overall Billboard singles chart, cementing their “next level” status.
The trio’s second album, Culture, was released at the start of 2017 and went straight to No. 1. The LP ended up on most “Best Albums of the Year” lists. The group followed up its breakthrough album almost exactly one year later with Culture II, which also hit No. 1.
Between solo releases, Migos has been doing dates with OG supporter Drake on the Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour, but the group is winding down 2018 with a few one-off arena-headlining dates, including their “Jingle Jam” show in Cincinnati with Tee Grizzley, BlocBoy JB, La4ss and Dash Gwoppovelli.
