The untold truth of Migos
In just under three years, rap trio Migos — which consists of Quavious “Quavo” Marshall, Kirsnick “Takeoff” Ball, and Kiari “Offset” Cephus — went from releasing the relatively successful 2015 album, Yung Rich Nation, to crushing the charts with their critically acclaimed 2017 breakout album Culture. The Gwinnett County, Ga. natives followed up with the highly anticipated Culture II in 2018 and racked up chart-topping hits during their meteoric ascension to fame — from “Hannah Montana” to “Versace,” and the Grammy-nominated hit, “Bad and Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert.
International success meant the threesome was able to transcend the rap world and cross over to pop. They lent their vocals to Katy Perry’s “Bon Appétit” and even made an appearance on electro house DJ Steve Aoki’s 2017 song, “Night Call”, featuring Lil Yachty.
It didn’t take long for the world to become hypnotized by hip hop’s mumble rap champs, and their lives have certainly done a 180 since fame seemingly dropped in their laps. Despite making waves in the industry and headlining their own Yung Rich Nation tour, they’ve faced a series of legal battles and deadly gunfights that put the Wild West to shame. They’ve also ruffled more than a few feathers with their peers, as well.
