About

The Migos () are an American hip hop group from Lawrenceville, Georgia, founded in 2008. The group was originally composed of Southern rappers Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset. Quavo is from Athens, Georgia and Offset and Takeoff were born and raised in Lawrenceville, Georgia. They are managed by Coach K, the former manager of Gucci Mane and Jeezy, and frequently collaborated with producers such as DJ Durel, Murda Beatz, Zaytoven, and Buddah Bless. Recognized for their contribution to trap music in the 2010s, Billboard stated that the group "influenced pop culture and the entire English language by bringing their North Atlanta roots to the mainstream".Migos released their commercial debut single "Versace" in 2013, taken from their mixtape Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas). They released several more singles, including "Fight Night" (2014), "Look at My Dab" (2015), and their four Billboard Hot 100 top 10 entries "Bad and Boujee" (featuring Lil Uzi Vert) (2016), peaking at number 1, "MotorSport" (with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B) (2017), peaking at number 1, "Stir Fry" (2018), peaking at number 8, and "Walk It Talk It" (featuring Drake) (2018), peaking at number 1.

Migos released their debut album Yung Rich Nation in July 2015, through Quality Control Music and 300 Entertainment. In 2016, the group portrayed fictionalized versions of themselves in the first season of the Donald Glover comedy-drama television series Atlanta. Their second album, Culture, was released in January 2017 also through both record labels, and debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart. The group signed a deal with Motown and Capitol Records in February 2017, and put out the album Culture II in January 2018, giving the group their second number 1 album in the United States. In 2021, the trio released their long-awaited fourth album Culture III, the final installment in their Culture trilogy.

On November 1, 2022, Takeoff was shot and killed in Houston, Texas.
