Following a wildly successful, chart-topping 18 months, Migos have stated that they are already looking to head back into the studio, to capitalise on their momentum, and make another album.
In a piece by the New York Times, profiling Atlanta based hip-hop, and in particular Migos’ label Quality Control, it was revealed that the sequel to January’s Culture, will be arriving in the early stages of 2018. The trio dropped Culture 2‘s first song ‘Motorsport’ recently, featuring Nicki Minaj, and fellow breakthrough artists Cardi B- Who also recently got engaged to Migos member Offset.
Culture turned Migos into megastars, with lead single ‘Bad & Boujee’ topping charts worldwide, as well as becoming a viral hit in the process. Shifting over 131,000 units in it’s first week alone, Culture swiftly topped the Billboard 200, and the group clearly want to capitalise on this current surge in heavily-produced, ad-libbed, hip-hop, by following up with another album within a year of their last.
Quavo- who has been ubiquitous in his features on other hip-hop tracks throughout 2017- shared muted studio footage back in October, which showed studio sessions featuring the likes of Chance The Rapper and Donald Glover apparently recording with the group.
The NY Times’ piece also revealed that fellow Atlanta native Lil Yachty will also be releasing a sequel in the coming months. The Lil Boat 2 mixtape is apparently due in late December, as the young rapper looks to bounce back from the widespread critical shellacking his last album Teenage Emotions received.
