Migos have been at the center of Hip-Hop culture, directing and determining what is cool and influencing every aspect of the culture. From the after a long dry-spell the Migos have suited up for the second studio album. Did the Migos finally find their sound or is this another setback for them?
Right off the bat Migos show their growth and improvement from their 2015 Yung Rich Nation, an album full of aggressive raps and flashy flows but lacked full song writing capabilities. The trio have perfected their craft, when it comes to make hard-hitting music and impressive triplet flows. Integrating auto tune a la Travis Scott, helped the Migos experiment and expand their range. Throughout this album I saw the growth in all of the members of the collective. I was impressed by all of the member’s abilities to switch between rapping and harmonizing. None of the posse fall behind, all of them growing to hold their own and be dope artist in their own right.
While I did thoroughly enjoy Culture, it does have its faults. Some of the songs felt of place. It almost felt as though songs like Deadz and Kelly Price were put on Culture as an afterthought. These tracks lack motivation and direction and seem pointless in the totality of the album. Overall Culture is a fun project, full of banging trap anthems and songs to party and have a great time.
