Migos is at the forefront of Atlanta's revitalized Hip Hop movement. Along with Rich Gang's Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug, the fast-rapping trio is "creating the new Atlanta."
In a recent interview with Vulture, Migos explained how although their counterparts are from different areas in Atlanta, they're each breaking ground on a new scene within the capital of Georgia.
"We bring the spaghetti, put it in the bowl, mix it together, and we make the new Atlanta," says Quavo, one-third of Migos. "[Quan and Thug] came from a whole 'nother side of the city. They got cities and buildings. They got blocks, but on Northside, where we're from, you got to get in a car and ride together. We turn out the suburbia areas."
Last year, Migos and Rich Gang collided on the track "New Atlanta." ATL veteran Jermaine Dupri joined the upstarts on the revamped version of his 2002 hit "Welcome to Atlanta."
After flooding the Internet last year with two mixtapes – No label 2, Rich Nigga Timeline – the crew says they are no longer making new music.
"We got our itinerary," Offset says. "Our album should be out in the spring of 2015."
When asked if they could provide further details on the project, which is a follow-up to its YRN mixtape, Quavo responded with his signature ad-lib: "You know, you just got to wait on it!"
Elsewhere in the interview, the trio provided some context to an image that was released on Twitter last month.
Within the filtered photo, which has since been deleted, Chief Keef and affiliate Tadoe stand side-by-side with Migos. Weeks before, Keef's GBE camp was blamed for allegedly stealing Quavo's chain in D.C.
"That was fake Internet beef," says Offset.
"We were in LA, and bosses made boss calls, and we made honcho calls, and we met like bosses," Quavo chimes in. "Now we are good. We’re just keeping it moving, and making our money."
