Atlanta rap trio Migos, who taught the nation how to rhyme “raindrop” with “droptop,” have a Twin Cities date on the calendar.
Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset’s highest profile Minnesota performance to date is set for Tuesday, April 18, at Myth.
The show comes not long into a banner year for Migos, which had their second full-length album, Culture, debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 following its January release.
Buoyed by the hypnotic single “Bad and Boujee,” which also hit No. 1, the rappers have enjoyed unprecedented attention the past few months. Actor/rapper Donald Glover even acknowledged the song during a speech at this year’s Golden Globes.
“I think that they’re the Beatles of this generation,” he said backstage.
Their 2013 single “Versace” signaled an initial brush with success. It caught Drake’s attention, and he later appeared on a remix and aped their now-ubiquitous minimalist rhyme schemes.
Aside from several talk show appearances, Migos cultivated a strange following leading up to this year’s Super Bowl. A petition calling for them to replace Lady Gaga as the halftime entertainment circulated and garnered nearly 70,000 signatures. It wasn’t going to happen, but it showed a galvanized fanbase.
Tickets for Migos at Myth are $55, $80, and $100, and are available here. Our colleagues at Go 95.3 are presenting the show.
