There are few acts in the game that sound as continually fresh as the Migos. They always seem to come with new flows and flavors. Between the three of them, their creative energy knows no bounds. With one excellent project, January's YRN 2, under their Versace belts, the trio surprised fans a couple of nights ago with a brand new EP, 3 Way. Favoring quality over quantity, the project contains just 5 tracks, and there's not a weak one in the bunch. Most of the songs are produced by frequent collaborators of the group -- two by Zaytoven, one by Cassius Jay, and another by Dun Deal. The remaining instrumental, "Can't Go Out Sad," comes from Ricky Racks, who belongs to Young Thug's inner-circle and is responsible for memorable beats like the one on the now-platinum "Best Friend."
On "Can't Go Out Sad," Racks makes use of a cheeky sample that mimics the bouncy flows of the young trio. His production -- slower than usual but dripping with funk -- eases each of the three emcees into a relaxed and confident zone, and they go back and forth dropping off flurries of melodic punchlines that are as charming as they are intimidating.
Standing in the trap, been a long day
Thinking bout putting insurance on my wrist and AK
Mama tired, daddy died, ain't no Real Housewives
Now it's no more crying, cause we upper echelon
I can make a Tuesday, go up like a Saturday
Don't play where you fools play, you must be from out of state
