This article provides a review of Migos' second studio album, Culture.  The group is currently dominating hip-hop but they weren't getting any love from the major television networks.  "If you scratch my back I'll scratch yours." Last year, the trio appeared on an episode of Donald Glover's FX series, Atlanta.


Glover won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series and gave Migos a shout out for making the song "Bad And Boujee."  Following the shout out, television networks allowed the group to appear on their late night shows and the song has over 148 million YouTube views.  Without further ado, let's review Quavo, Takeoff and Offset's sophomore album, Culture.

1. Culture (feat. DJ Khaled)

DJ Khaled doesn't drop any motivational quotes on Culture instead he calls out the haters that have been doubting Migos.  Classic Migos on this one.  All the ad libs you can handle.


Takeoff's hook is everything on this track.  He outshines Quavo and Offset.  The best part of the song is at the end when Khaled comes back in and you think the song's done but then Takeoff delivers the hook one last time.

2. T-Shirt

The song is a perfect tribute to Shawty Lo.  Migos proves that their trap word play has changed hip-hop forever.  The beat is on point and Offset kills verse 3.  "I get high on my own sir, heard you gon' clone, sir!"


As the tweet above proclaims, "T-Shirt" is one of the best tracks I've heard in a long time.

3. Call Casting

Quavo came through on this one: "White boy in the game, call em Andy Milonakis." The track sums up the group's Culture.  The hook explains that hustling never stops.


There's nothing like delivering your true self on a track and that's exactly what Migos does on "Call Casting." The group went from the streets to the studio.  While they may have switched scenes, their hustles have remained intact. 

4. Bad And Boujee (feat. Lil Uzi Vert)

Offset's classic line "Raindrop, drop top" will never be forgotten.  Choosing to put Lil Uzi Vert on the track was a power move.  Migos rode the beat while Lil Uzi Vert added his animated verse to create a perfect track.


You won't get tired of listening to this track anytime soon.  Migos has multiple hit singles ensuring that listeners have a variety to pick from.

5. Get Right Witcha

Quavo has proven himself as the group's best rapper so I don't mind calling him out when he puts me to sleep.  That's exactly what he does on this track.  Offset comes in and wakes listeners back up.  "Make a milli then I make it twice." The rapper, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, delivers one of his best verses of all-time.


Takeoff starts his verse as slow as Quavo but then speeds up, delivering triplets at a pace similar to Offset's.  The beat is hot, and just like that, Culture is 5 for 5 in my book.  The album's first 5 tracks are A-1, period.

6. Slippery (feat. Gucci Mane)

Quavo does a solid job on the first portion of the track but listener's aren't sure what the song's about until Offset's verse: "Slippery, she numbin me, that tongue on me." Gucci Mane is classic Gucci on the track.  Diamonds, cars and a basketball reference.  It's scary how easy the game has become for Atlanta emcees.


Although we have the formula figured out, there's no denying the quality of each track.  Try to play the song without bobbing your head to the beat:


It's great to hear Migos collaborating with Gucci.  The rapper played a significant role in the group's career.

7. Big On Big

The track reminds listeners that Migos is lit.  This song is appreciated because it adds to the theme of the album, Culture.  It reminds us of Meek Mill's "Levels."


Migos has only released two studio albums yet they have numerous hits.  It's difficult to believe that they're still fighting for respect.

8. What The Price

Should Migos stick to their strengths and make every track an upbeat trap song? The trio discusses drug prices along with their high price lifestyle.


This was Culture's worst track.  When the trio discusses money they shouldn't add their vague theories.  Fans are motivated when the trio raps about making money and hustling hard.

9. Brown Paper Bag

This track definitely highlights the album's title, Culture.  DJ Khaled and crew told us about that "Brown Paper Bag" and Migos is keeping it alive.


Hip-hop culture is all about shining and Migos reminds us that they haven't stopped earning and spending.  "Go to the mall in a Bentley, money is bigger than Winfrey's."

10. Deadz (feat. 2 Chainz)

Migos became Crime Mob on this track.  While it's not quite "Knuck If You Buck" the song will definitely start some fights in clubs throughout the nation.


If it's not broken, add another Atlanta rapper to it and turn up! 2 Chainz delivered a quality verse, as expected.  Another quality track for Migos' sophomore release.

11. All Ass

Migos will set a record for strip club classics.  The track takes listeners to Magic City.  The group has never been shy about their love for strippers and this song sounds like it was recorded in the strip club.

Quavo forces listeners to respect his talent at the end of his verse.  The rapper shows off his storytelling skills.  We all know how much the group loves storytelling:


12. Kelly Price (feat. Travis Scott)

In the song's hook, Qauvo says, "I'ma let that lean flow through my ice" and that's exactly what he means.  The track is a lean song that takes listeners to space.  Migos recognizes that every song can't be a trap classic so they switched things up on this one.


The Kelly Price reference is random enough for listeners to love it.

13. Out Yo Way

Quavo sings on the hook.  In his best Ja Rule x Future voice, the rapper thanks the ladies who have helped him out throughout his life.  Quavo mentions his mother and grandmother on the track, making it difficult to be critical.  Takeoff delivers the second verse and sounds like he's speaking to a special lady in his life.


Offset's fast tempo is impressive, as usual, but doesn't quite fit the track.  The song's message is strong but the group should listen to Drake's "Look What You've Done." The track proves that rappers don't have to sing in a track dedicated to the females in their lives.
