After sell-out crowds with some of the hottest global stars, BBC 1Xtra's DJ Semtex is back and mixing it up this year with Atlanta hip-hop group Migos. Constantly delivering the freshest new music to the UK, he will be bringing this blazing hot hip group to London’s
KOKO on Tuesday 7th April.
The three rappers who make up Migos are Quavo, Takeoff and Offset. Members Quavo and Takeoff are uncle and nephew; Offset is Quavo's cousin. While their rise to fame was somewhere between fast and meteoric, the Atlanta trio have steeped in the Southern tradition of hip-hop groups, having come together due to their shared love of acts like the Hot Boys and OutKast.
The group steamrolled their way onto the rap scene with their hit song Versace, which brought them the mainstream success they deserve. The single went viral and peaked at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100. Taken from their anticipated mixtape YRN, it has been downloaded 1.7 million times their music has earned 49 million YouTube views as well as 47 million monthly spins on Pandora. It also inspired rapper Drake to join for the official remix. He added a verse to the Versace remix and put the cut on his 2013 album, Nothing Was the Same. Last year the group ensured their staying power with the release of their No Label 2 mixtape, which featured hit tracks Fight Night and Freak No More.
Though the rap group is young, they have collaborated with some of the industry’s biggest stars which includes Trinidad James, ASAP Ferg, Travis Scott, Chief Keef, Juicy J, Twista, B.oB., Busta Rhymes, Riff Raff, R. Kelly, Gucci Mane, and Drake among others. 2015 is already shaping up to be just as productive for the burgeoning stars—who are planning to release their official debut album, Y.R.N. 2, early this year.
