These are the things you need to know about the US group Migos which will be performing here in SA.
They’ll be in South Africa next week. If you’re a casual fan and are looking to see what all the fuss is about, remember this:
1. MIGOS FLOW
If this phrase confuses you, listen to almost anyone making trap music. The way their raps fit into their songs is generally considered to have come from Migos and there are sure to be endless conversations among day-one fans about who has copied it.
2. VERSACE, VERSACE
Migos are the kings of the silk man-blouse and it seems only right that you pay homage in the right attire. It should be Versace but economic freedom has not reached us all, so feel free to improvise. Just remember, it needs to look like silk and ooze swag.
3. LEAVE YOUR COMPLAINTS ABOUT REAL HIP-HOP AT HOME
This is not a Wu Tang concert so no one will be rhyming the words atomically and sonically. Truth be told you may struggle to make out a lot of the words beyond the hook.
4. GET YOUR TICKETS ASAP
Migos are one of the biggest contemporary music acts in the world and even managed to briefly remind us that Katy Perry was still alive. Tickets will go fast and if you move slowly you’ll find yourself harbouring deep FOMO when your Instagram timeline is flooded with Migos shots.
