Who says the young guys don’t appreciate their music history? The Migos and Drake pay homage to Soul Train with their new video for “Walk It Talk.” This is one of those tracks where a good, fun video really goes a long way to enhance its appeal. And as much flack as some modern emcees gets for their fashion choices, this is a good reminder they’d fit right in during the 70s and early 80s.



After debuting “MotorSport” live at Powerhouse’s NYC last night, the Migos have officially begun their Culture II rollout by releasing the full song this afternoon.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj on the same track should quiet the rumors of beef, but that doesn’t mean the two rap queens can’t be competitive. You can tell both wanted to rise to the occasion and not be the weak link of the collaboration. Cardi’s up first and makes it a point to dismiss the tension rumors.

Same hoes that were sending shots

They reaching out like their back’s itching

What would I hop in some beef

When I can just hop in the Porshe

You heard she gon’ do what from who

That’s not a reliable source

But the show-stealer is Nicki Minaj. Pressure makes diamonds, and it seems Nicki is upping her game as the stakes are high with her next album and. She bobs and weaves through multiple flows while reminding everyone who still wears the crown. And it’s done so well that even her 4534634643654th reference to someone being her “son” is easily forgiven.

Attention, I’ma need you to face front

You don’t want smoke

This a laced blunt

Rap’s Jackie Chan

We ain’t pulling them fake stunts

My crown won’t fit

On your bum ass lace fronts

The verses from Quavo and Takeoff are standard Migos fare and pretty much afterthoughts. Considering how much their flow has permiated the mainstream, let’s hope they try to swtich up the formula a bit for this new project. At press time, there’s no release date for Culture II.


The Everyday Struggle crew are involved in yet another rapper confrontation. And this time, DJ Akademik wasn’t the target.

It all started with a  standard red carpet interview with Migos. The trio, never known to be the most expressive during interviews, seemed immediately on guard due to Akademik’s kicking off things by referencing the “running joke” of Takeoff being left off the group’s smash single “Bad & Boujee.” Things got more awkward as Akademik’s appeared to not hear or couldn’t make out the group’s Georgia drawl, and Budden suddenly interjected to cut the interview short.

As he left, he brushed by Offset and dropped the mic right in front of Quavo (while mouthing off, no less). As expected, the group took it as disrespect and stood up, prompting their entourage to swarm.

Fighting at award shows? Real Hip-Hop is truly back! In all seriousness, this was more posturing than anything else. Yes, I’m aware that the Migos once Superman-punched a fan from the stage, but 99% of the time rappers are not trying to get their hands dirty. The Migos’s money is a little longer these days, so they were ready to let the goons handle Budden.

Joe confirmed on Twitter this morning that his beef was indeed with the Migos and not his co-host’s questioning. Budden went on to call the trio “sassy.” Say what you want about Budden’s well-documented L’s (like the Raekwon incident), but he’s also on camera confronting folks one-on-one to resolve any tension (see Consequence).

Was Budden unprofessional? Absolutely. But you don’t watch Everyday Struggle or listen to his podcast looking for objective news. You do so because he’s unfiltered, much like Charlamagne and Star’s fanbases.

Still, being unfiltered doesn’t necessarily protect your jaw. Unless Complex cuts the security check, it might be time to start taking bets on who gets snuffed first this summer between Joe and Akademiks.


Who pissed off Royce da 5’9? The Detroit lyricist goes ballistic over the instrumentals for Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” and French Montana’s “Lockjaw.” Royce is starting off 2017 in beast mode.

With their dance craze still firmly entretched in the national consciousness, Migos have finally put together some visuals for “Look At My Dab.” It’s too bad they couldn’t get an appearance from Cam Newton, who did a lot to popularize the song with his NFL celebrations. The video is directed by Gabriel Hart.


A$AP Ferg gets the original Shabba, ATL’s Migos, and Busta Rhymes for the remix to his street anthem “Shabba Ranks.” If you already don’t care for these type of the hood jingles with random celebrities as the subject, the added guests won’t change your mind (although Busta steals the show as usual). You can buy the single HERE.

Two things. One, this video is way late. Second, if you’re going to take this long to put it out, it would have behooved the Migos crew to have the popular remix version with Drake. Makes you wonder if they were reached out and given the cold shoulder.
