The Migos, in a smoke-filled haze, grace the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
Check out some highlights from hip-hop’s favorite guys of the moment below:
Offset on why he chose to propose to fiancee Cardi B at a concert in Philadelphia: “So she wouldn’t think I was playing. Let the world see that sh*t. I must have spent half a million on that [ring]. She is real solid, came from where I came from, did what I did. She’s herself, man. I seen her develop from the trenches all the way up, and I like how she did it. I respect her grind as a woman. She came to the game with some gangsta sh*t. I like that. I f*ck with her. That’s my baby.”
Quavo on their beef with former rapper/hip-hop commentator Joe Budden: “I ain’t never had no beef with Joe Budden! I always just been, ‘F*ck him.’ It’s no disrespect when I say, ‘F*ck him.’ It’s not like, ‘F*ck him when I see him, let’s f*ck him up.’ It’s like a ‘F*ck him, I’m not bothering him, he ain’t bothering me’ type of f*ck. It’s no beef. He’s just a man with bullshit opinions to piss the artists off. And on top of that, he used to be an artist, so he knows what to say to piss us off.”
Quavo on capitalizing off his fame: “I want to sit down, actually, with Ellen [Degeneres] on the couch. Sit down with Jimmy Kimmel on the couch, sit down with [Jimmy] Fallon or something. Really do the things that these real, real major stars doing. I want to be part of everything. In high school, I played three sports, and in the industry I’m trying to play three sports as well.” He means making music and acting in and producing movies; he recently said he’s working on something inspired by the films he grew up loving: “Juice, Menace II Society, all the Snoop Dogg movies, Master P movies, I Got the Hook-Up, Baller Blockin’ – the Big Tymers movie.”
On their new album “CULTURE II”: “Despite the unusual setting, Culture II has “the original Migos sound,” Offset says. “Club rocking. The beat, the bass is everything. We’re not really a slow-down artist. It’s light, it’s fun, it’s lit.” “It’s still trap,” Takeoff adds. “We got a little funkier. It’s not all the way funk. There’s still a Migos vibe.”
