We are getting you ready for the drop of hip hop trio Migos’ upcoming album Culture 2 this entire week.
When does it drop? This Friday and yes we will play it back to back uncensored so keep it HBR all week to find out when it will be playing.
There’s is a lot you may or may not know about the group but here are the facts:
The three; Quavo, Offset and Takeoff are all related and were raised together Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle, and Offset and Quavo are cousins.
Quavo’s full name is Quavious Keyate Marshall, Offset’s is Kiari Kendrell Cephus and Takeoff’s is Kirshnik Khari Ball.
Their name could as well pass for the shortened version of ‘Amigos’ (meaning ‘friend’ in Spanish), but ‘Migos’ is another term for an abandoned house that is used as a trap house for drugs to be made and sold. The trio said their trap music is based on what they’ve witnessed growing up.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the trio is well on their way to the 10 million US dollar mark.
Due to a self destructive temper Quavo got kicked out of High school. His celebrity crush is Nicki Minaj.
Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset first formed as a rap group called Polo Club in 2009.
Takeoff’s favorite rapper is Kendrick Lamar, Offset is a huge fan of 3k aka André 3000, and Quavo thinks JAY-Z is “the greatest rapper right now.”
Migos have released two studio albums, 12 mixtapes and one EP. They have achieved a number one album in the US with their sophomore album ‘Culture’.
All three are from Lawrenceville, Georgia.
The trio were temporarily a duo in 2015 following the arrest of Offset after group’s tour bus was raided after a show at a university. Quavo and Takeoff were released, while Offset remained in custody for eight months until his release.
