It was on a Thursday morning Migos announced they would be putting on a show in London for one night only. Quavo, Takeoff and Offset gave us five days to get our acts together and get that ticket for what was anticipated to be the hottest show in town. No doubt tickets sold out in a flash.
Migos touched down in London and put on a show at the O2 Academy Brixton and it was one not to be missed. The night was full of hits after hits and the crowd was wild as expected thanks to their long-time producer and tour DJ, Durel keeping us hyped. The vibe was right throughout the night with stage fire, pyro, confetti, and dry ice inciting us to create mosh pits and excitement within the crowd.
Migos gave us some nostalgia with throwback tunes for the day one fans in the words of Quavo ‘the Huncho’, ‘Hannah Montana’, ‘Bricks’ and ‘Fight Night’. This was just proof that the boys have come far and still standing still as a hip-hop trio to be reckoned with. Although the Migos have been doing their thing for a while it was their ‘Culture’ that gave us anthems such as ‘Slippery’, ‘Kelly Price’, ‘Deadz’ and hit song ‘Bad and Boujee’ that boosted their fan base and worldwide recognition. Their latest release ‘Culture II’ has only gone and advanced their success and not to mention their own solo careers which was highlighted when the gang got their ‘drip on’ to Offset’s first platinum single ‘Ric Flair Drip’.
The trio are well known for their ad-libs and more importantly for their influence on Culture. You can say what you will about what some have termed as ‘mumble rap’, but it has been a while since a hip-hop group has dominated the industry and have been consistent. Migos are doing their own thing setting trends the only disappointment is one night was just not enough.
Migos will be returning to London again in July for the Wireless Festival.
