[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/UGF5XUI39Og service=youtube width=854 height=480 type=iframe]

Migos stops by Sway In The Morning on the brink of their new album release Culture. The trio speaks with Sway Calloway as the industry vet gave them props for leading the new rap culture, and sticking together for so many years.

Since their mentioned by Atlanta‘s Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino at the 2017 Golden Globes during his win, Migos’ “Bad And Boujee” charted at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 spot with a 240% spike in sales, literally within 24-48 hours.

During the interview, Quavo, Takeoff and Offset capped off a freestyle with only later being surprised by legendary actor Laurence Fishburne.

Check it out above.

To add, a petition has been raised for Migos to replace Lady Gaga at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show.

In addition to the replacement, the request also states that the Preshow should include Rae Sremmurd, Gucci, Goodie Mob, Ludacris and Young Jeezy, Young Thug needs to sing “Guwop Home”, the official anthem of Atlanta, Andre 3000 should sing the national anthem with Erykah Badu. By sing, they mean hit Donald Trump with a FIRE 64 bars. Lastly, the halftime should be Migos killing “Bad and Boujee,” Future with “March Madness”, then Outkast comes out and does an AQUEMINI sampler and then they end it with Bun B and Jay Z doing “Big Pimpin.”

Thoughts?
