[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?

The Word: Ciara and Ludacris Host Billboard Awards…

tumblr_o5bsocgclG1qb4r43o1_1280

It’s fly guy. Ludacris’s third consecutive time hosting the Billboard awards but this year he will be joined by long time friend Ciara.

tumblr_o4i7uxhndl1u3tfndo2_1280

With her newfound “ I got rid of a F**k boy and found a better man” glow, we are totally here for this collaboration. The Atlanta natives have not publicly worked with each other in years so its bound to be a good time. We’re hoping they will bless us with a performance of RIDE for old time’s sake.

The 2016 Billboard Award will be held in the original Sin City, Las Vegas on May 22 and it has a new venue. The brand new T- Mobile Arena will be the home of this year’s extravaganza. The show will broadcast live on ABC at 8pm E.T.

“The Billboard Music Awards is one of best awards shows to honor chart success. My great friend Ludacris and I have also shared songs together on the Billboard chart. I look forward to sharing the stage with him on this special night. It will definitely be a night to remember” said Ciara.

The finalists for the awards are still under wraps. Ludacris and Ciara are set to announce the nominees during their upcoming appearance on Good Morning America, this Monday. According to Billboard, the finalists are chosen based on key fan interactions including success with album and digital song sales. In addition, their data experts also factor in tours, streaming numbers and radio airplay. We’re anxious to hear the finalists and excited to see what the awards will have in store for us.

-Stay Fly!
