"...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..."
"...Austin promotions umbrella Scoremore launched JMBLYA to bring tomorrow’s hip-hop to Texans today. They succeeded: Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt (2013), Chance the Rapper (2014), Travis Scott, Vic Mensa (2015), Future, Rae Sremmurd (2016), and Chance, Gucci Mane, and Migos (2017)..."
"...Garth Brooks joins for a keynote conversation with Amazon VP Steve Boom, a "Shameless" promotion for Amazon's Garth-approved streaming service. Late-breaking announcements also added top-tier urban talent: Solange, Lil Wayne, Migos, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Action Bronson, De La Soul, Denzel Curry, political rock star Joe Biden, and prog metal legacy Mastodon..."
"...Asian-American rap crew 88rising stars Indonesian teen Rich Brian (formerly Rich Chigga) of Chengdu’s Migos, plus Joji, Keith Ape, Higher Brothers, Don Krez, and more. Sean Miyashiro’s A$AP Mob-like collective manages overseas talent with viral crossover hits like Brian’s trapped “Dat $tick” and Ape’s headbanger smash “It G Ma.” They vibed on last summer’s lo-fi pop debut Head in the Clouds..."
"...She darted off, but then used the last of her time to greet fans below the stage as her DJ played Drake and Migos, passing joints, talking, and snapping selfies with the few left standing...."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...They almost challenge the rap star power of JMBLYA, which boasts the fab four of J. Cole, Migos, Cardi B, and Kevin Gates at Circuit of the Americas on May 5...."
"...By comparison, rock only notched a dozen and several were reissues of classics. Migos is the new Tom Petty, Atlanta is the new Seattle, Rae Sremmurd are the "Black Beatles."..."
"...Wed. 14, Ironwood Hall, 9:45pm As a 19-year-old cash-strapped rapper Kenneth Jackson soundtracks mostly Migos-style trap and some syrupy Houston screw, while also boasting quite a few famous guests, from recent Atlanta sensation Lil Baby to Father..."
"...The brand soundtracks mostly Migos-style trap and some syrupy Houston screw, and to keep his content regular, Jackson records a backlog of singles that he drops on a timed schedule. He also boasts quite a few famous guests, from recent Atlanta sensation Lil Baby to Father..."
"...The North Carolina rapper/singer joins Cardi B, who last month became the first MC to land three singles in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 simultaneously. Her “Motor Sport” collaborators Migos, who performed at JMBLYA last year, just landed atop the albums chart with Culture II..."
"...7) Migos, Culture (Quality Control)..."
"...JMBLYA, ScoreMore Shows' single-day festival, moves to Circuit of the Americas after easily selling out the Austin American-Statesman's 10,000-capacity parking lot last spring. Migos and Gucci Mane were also added to the May 6 event, already featuring Grammy magnet Chance the Rapper, Steve Aoki, and Lil Uzi Vert..."
"...The 658-capacity room became a noteworthy venue in Austin’s EDM market, working with local promoters C3 Presents, Scoremore, Disco Donnie Presents, and Transmission Events. Besides presenting world-class IDM acts such as Autechre, the two-story club also hosted hip-hop, including a recent two-night stand by popular Atlanta trio Migos...."
"...Both the SXSW website and the schedule at the door listed a “special guest” closing the festivities: no-show Georgia trio Migos. Bada$$ shut down the stage in their absence with excellent call-and-response, encouraging the crowd to mosh during crowd favorite “Survival Tactics.”..."
"...Migos (Atlanta, GA.)..."
