The Migos have come a long way since their debut commercial single, “Versace,” dropped in 2013. The gold-selling single segued the group from being three guys from Lawrenceville, G.A. spitting dope hooks over the right beat to a trio of multimillionaires making at least $150,000 (collectively) per show. The Georgia boys’ latest album, Culture II, houses three top five singles on the Hot Rap Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs’ Billboard charts. Their six-year commercial track record proves the Migos know how to walk it like they talk it.

The Migos second single, “Fight Night,” which dropped in 2014, was a smash. To date, the four-minute-plus hit has racked up more than 26 million views on YouTube and joined the group’s list of 34 Hot 100 tracks on the charts. So when they say everything they’re doing is for the culture, they’re not lying. 

Offset is a proud father of four, and recently dedicated his similarly-titled album to his four offspring. He’s also married to hip-hop’s glow-up star. (Hey Cardi!) Together, the two have an 8-month old daughter name Kulture. Quavo teamed up with former One Direction member, Liam Payne, on “Strip That Down,” and helped bring DJ Khaled’s fall 2017 pop record, “I’m the One,” to life, helping merge two of America’s most popular music genres. Takeoff is gearing up to give fans his debut album, The Last Rocket, on Nov. 2 of this year. 

And now, even in their solo careers, the Migos, who are all related, haven’t wavered as a group. 

The trio has been on the road for a while, and the countdown is on tp when they’ll pull up at this year’s Summer Stage alongside Meek Mill, Tory Lanez, and their first lady, Cardi B. With their full schedules, it’s clear the Gang Gang has no plans on slowing down anytime soon.
