Playback – JMBLYA 2017: Trapper’s Delight
JMBLYA garners the third largest concert audience in Austin's 2017
Music Column  May 11, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...It didn't hurt that the fifth-year event's midday act recently topped Billboard's album chart. Sharp-dressed Atlanta trap kinfolk Migos sparked up recent smash LP Culture with staccato Southern chants of "Get Right Witcha," faring better than melodic material like "Kelly Price." While the trio's big-stage showing came off decidedly nonchalant compared to their wild outing at Vulcan Gas Company last spring, Migos boasted an arsenal of hits to slay large crowds..."

Kydd Jones
Music Review  September 6, 2018, by Clara Wang
"...Like Dingus, the rapper is an Austin native, and the 31-year-old spitter odes his childhood ride-or-dies in a spacey drone. Highly versatile, his Texas drawl delivers a Rubik's Cube flow, assembling and disassembling cadences and consonants, but at times slipping into Migos-style ad libs..."

JMBLYA 2018 Packs Out for J. Cole
Wall-to-wall rap showcase climaxes with wokeness
DAILY Music  May 6, 2018, by Clara Wang
"...In contrast, Migos, fresh off January’s Culture II, also came up on the Atlanta mixtape scene, but their lean-dripped performance read as total coolness rather than lethargy. Their execution is as virtuosic and effortless as their rapping; Quavo touching his hand to his head becomes a dance move and when Offset sneezes it looks like a dab..."
