It's pretty common knowledge that Migos became widely popular after Drake hopped on their "Versace" record, and borrowed what many now pinpoint as the Migos flow. It's a choppy flow that we've seen take on different shapes and forms over the past year depending on who borrows it.
Last week, Gucci Mane announced (from prison) that his label will be dropping three new albums on the same day from his current and former signees; Young Thug's The Purple Album, Migos' The Green Album and PeeWee Longway's The White Album.
"Fight Night" is a surprise hit, not because the Migos didn't have another one in them, but that it's very much a west coast feel, breaking out of the Zaytoven-helmed brand of Atlanta trap they've perfected over the ;ast year or so.
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 10 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
Well here's a collaboration that we didn't see coming. Following last month's "We Were Born For This" release, Justin Bieber calls on ATL's own Migos for a feature on his newest track "Looking For You".
Peewee Longway's mixtape The Blue M&M, released earlier this week, brought together many of the biggest young players in Atlanta. One of those players is Offset of Migos, who appeared on six of the tape's tracks, including "Pretty Penny."
Now that Migos have a sizeable amount of fame to their name, we're seeing other artists from the QC crew step to the forefront. One such rapper is Skippa Da Flippa, who connects today with labelmates Migos and Rich The Kid over production from the go-to trap producer Zaytoven.
Jose Guapo is part of QC The Label, the Migos-helmed label that recently released their Solid Foundation mixtape.
Guapo looks like he's being groomed to be the next in line from the collective, and has been dropping music very consistently this year.
Sonny Digital has seen plenty of success this past year, with production credits on Future's "Covered N Money" track off Honest as well as "Need" off Gucci Mane & Young Thug's Young Thugga Mane LaFlare, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
