Since the release of Culture I Atlanta’s beloved trio the Migos have truly changed the culture of hip-hop. In a way I would say they are modern day rocks stars and changed the landscape of the industry as we knew it. Over the last year it seems like they were always in the forefront for either their own singles, features, or controversy. Together or separate, this trio seem to be ready to continue riding their own wave into the new year with the release of Culture II. Here is my review on their second installment of their Culture series with some commentary on some of my favorite tracks from the album.
This year has been a good one when it comes to music and new artists. As far as I can remember it has been two or three years since we had a strong year when it came down to new music and artists. Artists like Lil Uzi Vert and SZA came on the scene with their début albums and took over the year with solid singles while other artists solidified themselves as artists to be reckoned with in the industry. So with no further wait, here is my list of artists who helped define 2017 in music.
It’s safe to say that Hip-Hop in 2017 was taken over by the Migos and they plan on continuing the wave of success with the release of Culture II. The Atlanta trio started off 2017 with their lead single which featured Lil Uzi Vert “Bad and Boujee” which gained the momentum needed to launch Culture into the heights that it went. It was the base of the movement that allowed the Migos to cross over and take over the air waves in America.
