Migos “Culture II” Drops & All Ears Are On Takeoff
For Migos, 2016 belonged to Quavo, 2017 belonged to Offset and it seems like 2018 will be the year of Takeoff. As Culture II was released, so was the love for Takeoff, who many believe lyrically outshines his Migos brothers.
Gucci Mane even referred to Takeoff as his “favorite rapper” and Quavo admitted that Takeoff was the best in the group. But y’all knew that!
Culture II includes production from Murda Beatz, Ricky Racks and Pharrell on “Stir Fry” as well as features from 21 Savage, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla Sign and Drake for the standout track, “Walk It Talk It.”
