Long removed from the supposed “flash-in-the-pan” category many pundits boxed them in when they first came out, Migos are riding on the wave of their successful 2017 and taking things to the next level.

After the most successful year in their early careers, Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have entered 2018 with one of the rap game’s most anticipated albums, Culture II, due to release on January 26. The follow-up of their early 2017 debut studio album, Culture, the Atlanta trio’s newest project has already topped the charts due to the lead single “Motorsport,” featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

The group has also been the subject of some controversy. After a very public proposal to Cardi B at the Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia in October 2017, Offset was the subject of an alleged video showing he was with another woman earlier this month. Offset also received backlash after a verse he rapped on for a song by YFN Lucci was criticized because of its homophobic lyrics. Offset released a statement and an apology on Instagram citing that he used the word to complete the rhyme and not as a homophobic slur.

While on their press run promoting Culture II, the group stopped past Beats 1 Radio with Ebro Darden to discuss the album. One topic, in particular, was the group’s “feud” with rapper-turned-show host Joe Budden, who the group had an unforgettable run-in with on the red carpet of the 2017 BET Awards. When asked about Budden’s newest ventures with Diddy and REVOLT, the group joked that they were owed a piece of Budden’s check as payback.
