quavo announces migos 'culture 2' album

The Migos Are Not Finished With Us

The release of Culture, the second studio album from Migos, was a classic Cinderella hip hop release. Though the Atlanta stars were popular, their selling power wasn’t yet proven, and they lacked a hit record. In the weeks leading up to the release of the album however, they got one in “Bad and Boujee.” Subsequently, they delivered “T-Shirt” as a knockout blow, and the next thing you knew they were celebrating having the No. 1 album in the country. Since then they’ve become pop’s most entertaining revelation, even managing to keep a horrid SNL performance from megastar Katy Perry mildly interesting. Vacation time, right?

Wrong. Rather than revel in the new echelon of fame they now lay claim to, the Migos are choosing to double down. During a recent stop on Future’s Nobody Safe Tour, on which the trio join Tory Lanez as opening acts, Quavo casually announced a sequel to Culture, Culture 2.

This is immediately significant for a couple of reasons. For one, duh, new Migos album. But more importantly, it means that Quavo isn’t going to be so quick to leap off into a solo realm that’s already proven to be successful and lucrative venture for him. As the de-facto leader of the group, Quavo has been a part of some high-powered records by Kanye West, Drake, Travis Scott and more—he actually has a joint album planned with the latter. At one point this month he had a whopping 10 placements on the Billboard Hot 100. 10% of the 100 hottest songs on the country bore Quavo’s name. Insanity.

Quavo’s keeping his solo star power on reserve for now as he guides Migos on their mission, and it looks like we’ll be getting yet another LP from the potent act fairly soon. All’s well in Bandoland.
