Warehouse Live, along with Geo Digital, Silver Platter, and New Kings, present Migos. Saturday, May 24 in The Ballroom.
Migos are a rap trio from Lawrenceville, GA consisting of members Quavo (Quavious Marshall), Offset (Kiari Cephus) and Takeoff (Kirshnik Ball). Originally, the group started as family, who all had an interest in music. It wasn't until 2008 when this trio took their talent seriously, put together and released their first project Juug Season in 2011. T?he group later released another mixtape titled No Label in 2012, which featured "Bando," a track that was soon labeled a "dope-boy anthem."
"The Migos have arrived during an era when rappers seem to go out of their way to appear insoucient and laid back, pulling against the beat's precise rhythms like laffy taffy. Migos, in contrast, have quick, ADD-addled double-time flows.
"They aren't lyrical miracles, per se, although due to cultural signifying and trap-oriented subject matter they will probably be underrated in this department. But they do use rapid-fire precision to create a kind of incessent, unforgettable affect that sets them apart." — David Drake, Complex Music
