5 Things To Know About The Sauce Twinz
If you're a fan of Houston rap, you're likely familiar with the Sauce Twinz, the duo of Sauce Walka and Sancho Saucey. They differ from the classic DJ Screw sound that has stayed in Houston hip-hop through artists like Slim Thug and Paul Wall, though certain elements and lingo from the mid-'90s scene can still be found throughout the Twinz' music. They take influence from the zealous trap sound of Atlanta, and their rampant ad-libbing has earned them comparisons to Migos.

Lyor Cohen Denies Migos Have Left 300 Entertainment
Migos' debut album, Yung Rich Nation, underperformed in its first week, selling under 20,000 copies.

Big announcement coming soon."
Top 5 Migos X Zaytoven Tracks
If Migos have a fallback producer, it's Zaytoven. He produced 7 of the 15 songs on their new tape Back to the Bando, and since "Versace" they have collaborated on over 30 records together. Why do they keep returning to Zaytoven? Probably because he is nothing if not consistent, a reliable bet to lay down a low-key, bouncy trap beat that works well with their triplet flow and mindless/repetitive/catchy hooks.
Migos Announce Departure From 300 Ent
Migos dropped off their new mixtape today, Back to the Bando, which arrives just a couple of months after their debut album, Yung Rich Nation. Perhaps the trio were newly re-energized after the release of their debut, or perhaps they just wanted to put out some more music for the fans, whatever the case, the new mixtape also comes with an announcement.
