How did the Migos get so rich?
Migos became rich immediately after they released their hit single “Versace”. It opened a lot of doors to the trio and they were offered many recording deals by major labels. In 2015, they signed deals with both YRN and 300 Entertainment, however, by September decided that Quality Control Music was the better option and went independent instead. After the success of “Versace”, Migos collaborated with many artists – Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Rich the Kid and 2 Chainz.
Their debut studio album titled “Yung Rich Nation” was released in July 2015. It was distributed by Quality Control, YRN, and 300 Entertainment, a few months before they ended their contracts. The album has 15 songs and was met with a lot of positive reviews. Upon its release, the album debuted on number 17 in the widely-known Billboard 200 chart. The album played an important part in Migos receiving an offer to join Kanye West’s label. They were officially signed to a management deal to West’s GOOD Music imprint in September 2016.
Following the success of their debut album, in January 2017, Migos released their second which was called “Culture”. At that time, they announced they’re no longer associated with West’s label. Their second album became more successful than the first and quickly debuted at the number one position in the Billboard 200, in the process, becoming Migos’ first album to achieve this. Unlike “Yung Rich Nation”, “Culture” included a lot of collaborations with different stars – Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert, and DJ Khaled. Six months later, the album was certified platinum by the RIAA and was also nominated in the category “Best Rap Album” at the 60th edition of the Grammys (from 2018), marking Migos’ first Grammy nomination.
Why are they so famous?
Migos are famous because they are one of the fastest rising hip hop groups of the 21st century. Their career began in 2008, however, the relatives knew each other since they were young. The three rappers were raised by Takeoff’s mother (who is also Quavo’s older sister) back in the early 2000s in suburban Atlanta. The group was officially in 2008 under the name “Polo Club”. Shortly after they began rapping, they decided that the name “Polo Club” was too generic, so they decided to change it to “Migos” instead.
In August 2011, Migos released their very first mixtape titled “Juug Season”. A few months later, in June 2012, they released their second mixtape “No Label”. The group rose to prominence after their single “Versace” was released in 2013. The song became viral in a few months time and became used in some of the most used social apps – Instagram and Twitter. One of the artists that also filmed himself rapping the song was the megastar, Justin Bieber. At that time, the song continued to grow popularity and even caught the attention of Drake, who was interested in appearing in its remix.
The remix of “Versace” was released a few weeks later and Drake even performed it at the iHeartRadio Music Festival from that year. By the end of the year, it became one of the most listened songs and was added in many year-end lists of 2013. During that time, the rappers released another mixtape “YRN (Young Rich Niggas)”.
What makes them so successful?
Migos are successful because they quickly took over the hip hop and trap scene with their style and hits. The second album of the trio was met with a lot of positive reviews and to further promote it, the group went on tour with many artists and they also took part in dozens of festivals. Lollapalooza, SummerFest, Festival diet de Quebec, Reading Festival, Leeds, and Made In America were just some of the many that they took part of.
In January 2018, Migos released their third studio album “Culture II”. Just like the previous album, it immediately topped multiple music charts including the Billboard 200. It was met with generally positive reviews and by the end of the year, it was ranked as the 10th most popular album of 2018 by Billboard 200. The album included collaborations with many artists such as Drake, 21 Savage, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Post Malone, and Cardi B.
Throughout the rest of 2018 and 2019, the hip hop trio was asked to perform in many festivals and tours – Coachella, Soundset, Open’er Festival, Exit Festival, and Lollapalooza. They also embarked on their first tour as headliners alongside Drake. The tour, which was called “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour” began in August and ended in November 2018. In 2019, the trio was planning to release their third studio album “Culture III”, however, plans changed and they pushed it to late 2020 due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Migos is one of the fastest rising hip hop groups in the music industry. They quickly took over the world with their unique hip hop/trap style and hit singles.
