Free Offset. That’s all. I can pretty much end the writeup there. But, because I’m no lazy journalist (dedication!) I’ll go ahead and give you some background info. Offset, 1/3 of Migos, is currently incarcerated (yes, again) for a probation violation. While he’s locked up Migos continue to tour and wait for the inevitable release of Offset. In the meantime the whole QC team is sharing “Work” featuring ATLien Jeezy — even though Jeezy has been beefing with Atlanta’s de facto Trap God, Gucci Mane, who as you know is cool with Migos. Anyway, this is “Work” and remember: Free Offset! Listen after the jump.
Migos have come a long way since “Versace” and they’ve got more hits on deck for 2015. Before they release their highly-anticipated debut album YRN: tha Album later this summer (it’ll be arriving July 31st) they’re sharing some new music for the streets. Days after releasing his QC the Label: Free da Gang mixtape, DJ Champ decides to release a no DJ version of one of the project’s standouts: the Murda-produced “Conversation.” Check it out after the jump.
Freestyle isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of the Atlanta trio Migos. But goddamn, watching this Tim Westwood freestyle it’s indicative that the trio of Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have incredible chemistry as they go off for 17 full minutes. Straight. No breaks. The three YRN: Tha Album rappers dropped bars over “Grindin’,” “OG Bobby Johnson,” “Money Baby,” “No Type,” “Computers” and more. Check it out after the jump.
Migos (Quavo, Offset, Takeoff) are teasing the release of their forthcoming debut full length album (hot off dropping consistent mixtape after consistent mixtape — not to mention their hit single “Versace” was certainly no “one hit wonder”) which arrives June 16th. They’ve already shared one single in “One Time” (get at it here) and by the looks of this new loosie entitled “Stankin'” it’s staying that way for the time being. The new cut features one time (no pun intended) Atlanta frontrunner Trinidad James. Sadly, he’s fallen onto some hard times as far as his relevance in the game. Anyway, get at the new Migos track after the jump!
Nardwuar the Human Serviette (or simply Nardwuar) has been interviewing musicians, celebrities and politicians for god knows how long! But in his latest interview Nardwuar met up with New Atlanta’s hottest trio, Migos. During his SXSW interview with Migos (Quavo, Takeoff and Offset) Nardwuar asked questions pertaining jewelry, fried chicken and… smells. Yep, it was most certainly a strange encounter. Check out the full video interview after the jump. Also, Migos’ YRN: Tha Album hits stores June 16th.
Migos have just about conquered the mixtape circuit after appearing on the season with 2013’s breakout Y.R.N. (Young Rich N***as) they then proved to not be one hit wonders dropping their No Label 2 mixtape containing two radio singles in “Handsome & Wealthy” and “Fight Night.” After sharing their Rich N***a Timeline late last year, Migos are now ready to dominate the album format as they prep the release of their forthcoming YRN 2 album. Here they’re sharing its first single, “One Time.” Listen after the jump.
New Atlanta’s OG Maco broke out onto the scene with his viral smash “U Guessed It!” but the madman hasn’t stopped putting in work as he dropped the OG Maco EP late 2014 as well as the stellar BREATHE EP. In addition, OG Maco’s affiliation with Quality Control (the label that houses such acts as Migos) is keeping the rapper busy and at the forefront of the New Atlanta movement. Now, Maco teams up with Austin Millz for “New Money” off of his Searching For Gotham compilation. Peep “New Money” after the jump.
OG Maco, the New Atlanta rapper who is perhaps best known for his viral smash “U Guessed It” from earlier this year, has just released his BREATHE EP, the followup to his aggressive and uncompromising OG Maco EP. The BREATHE EP drastically differs from Maco’s previous aforementioned music in that it finds Maco rapping with a clear mind, on civil rights issues in America right now (those being the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, respectively.) The three tracks “Get Down,” “Do Better,” and “Riot” are undoubtedly OG Maco’s most introspective moments in his short catalog and it’s refreshing to hear a quintessential “trap rapper” attempt something different for a change. Stream OG Maco’s three track BREATHE EP after the jump.
