Migos Say They Pick Beats Within Seconds of Hearing Them
The Culture promo tour continues, as Migos recently paid Sway a visit, offering some insight into how they choose their beats. Sway cues up a few instrumentals for the guys to freestyle over, Offset saying that they know what will work within the first few seconds.
"If we hear a beat too long, we ain’t gonna do it," he says in the above clip. "Soon as we hear it, you can hear it, as soon as it comes and you get that little drop, the first drop. We like 'pull it up, I don’t wanna hear no more.'" From there, Sway tosses some beats their way, which the three get busy on despite perhaps not feeling them 100 percent. "That wasn’t really the flavor though," Offset says after the first. "We just got to give it to you cause we can do anything and everything when you play it."
The trio as well is introduced to Laurence Fishburne of Boyz n the Hood and The Matrix fame. There isn't any exchange between the two guests, though Migos have dropped a Morpheus reference here and there throughout the past.
Culture drops tomorrow (Jan. 27) with a show at New York City's Highline Ballroom the same night. The next day, the three will be at NYU discussing their impact on music, fashion, dance and more. The Migos currently have the No. 1 song in the country wth "Bad and Boujee," the group looking to add a No. 1 album to their credits as well.
