The Migos had the audacity to compare themselves to the legends of ATL Outkast…… Now, don’t get me wrong I love their music , but I think them comparing themselves to real legends is not the business…… I mean let;s be clear The Migos are artist, that 20 years from now, you will be like who’s that? But overall in just two years, they’ve coined their own flow, landed high-profile features from Justin Bieber and Drake, and they’ve even drawn comparisons to pop icons, besides Outkast, the beatles too!
Now, in a new interview with Paper Magazine, the trio from Gwinnett County, Georgia is likening themselves to action heroes and ATL legends. To add insult they’re from “GWINNETT COUNTY” that’s the suburbs of Atlanta people!
According to HipHopDX:We like the Transformers, we come together from different scenes,” Takeoff says. “We kind of like the new Outkast,” Quavo adds. “They’re comparing us to the Beatles. They’re comparing us to legendary people. We didn’t grow up listening to them but we knew of these people. We just wanted to be in that same name bracket. The people we grew up watching and listening to — Outkast, Gucci Mane, Hot Boys, Lil Wayne, Master P — all that type of stuff, we took those styles and made it our own.”
Migos is also finding new ways to differentiate themselves. In addition to revealing that they take style cues from Slick Rick, the trio told Paper Mag that they currently have their own strain of marijuana.
“In Cali, we got the Migo Gas!,” Takeoff says. “We got our own strain in California, man. Migo Gas.” Migos’ debut studio album Y.R.N. Tha Album is scheduled to be released on June 16.
