So far, 2017 has had great album releases, with Tory Lanez kicking the year off with the releases of “Chixtape IV” and “The New Toronto II.” Recently, Migos has joined the mix with their highly anticipated album titled, “Culture.” Of course we all know every word of their hit single, “Bad and Boujee,” which has transcended to number 1 on the Billboard top 100 for weeks. The popular single left fans thirsty for more new music; so Migos released their album January 27.
My hopes for “Culture” were that it would live up to all the hype of its lead singles that were strategically put out with their visuals. The album exceeded my expectations and came harder than I think I’ve ever heard Migos go. I didn’t realize how much I needed new music from Migos until the intro came on featuring DJ Khaled with his loud introduction. The singles come and go until it comes down to the fluttering whistle beat of “Get Right Witcha.” Migos is back to claim their title as the ATL trio that makes these catchy trap songs, not that they ever lost it. “Culture” even has some great features that fit perfectly into each song. The features include: Travis Scott, Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz. They don’t even compete with the Migos on their own track which shows why they are the best at what they do. “Kelly Price,” which features Travis Scott, sounds like a true collaboration between the two. The two both mold into the beatles which makes me want more from the pair.
This album leaves me with the question of how did Migos create this album? Was it just something they went into the studio and did, or did they actually set out to make the best rap album of 2017? Either way, the trio made an album for the culture. They have, without a doubt, reserved their seat at the table with the best of the best.
