Migos is an American hip hop trio from Lawrenceville, Georgia, formed in 2009. The trio contains three rappers, known by their stage names Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff. Migos released their commercial debut single "Versace" in 2013, taken from their mixtape Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas). They went on to release several singles, such as "Fight Night" (2014), "Look at My Dab" (2015), and their two Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits "Bad and Boujee" (featuring Lil Uzi Vert) (2016), peaking at #1, and “MotorSport” (with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B) (2017), peaking at #6.
The band name Migos referes to a drug house, but the abbreviation must be interpreted as "amigos", which means "friends" as the tree are.
Migos released their debut album Yung Rich Nation in 2015, through Quality Control Music and 300 Entertainment. Their second album, Culture, was released in January 2017 and debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart. Migos are managed by Coach K, the former manager of Atlanta-based rappers Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy, and frequently collaborate with producers DJ Durel, Murda Beatz, and Zaytoven.
Migos was formed in 2009, by Quavo (real name Quavious Keyate Marshall), Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball), and Offset (name Kiari Kendrell Cephus), originally known as Polo Club and from Lawrenceville, Georgia. The three members are directly related and were raised together;
Quavo is Takeoff's uncle, and Offset is Quavo's cousin. The three of them grew up together in Gwinnett County, a mostly suburban area half an hour northeast of Atlanta. "I ain't going to sit here like, 'My neighborhood was hard, and I had to get out there and grind.' We made it hard for ourselves. We chose to stay on the streets," Quavo said. The group released their first full-length project, a mixtape titled Juug Season, on August 25, 2011. They followed with the mixtape No Label on June 1, 2012.
On March 17, 2016, Offset was arrested for driving with a suspended license in Atlanta but was released the next day without having charges filed against him. Offset has since claimed his license was never suspended and the police detained him without probable cause.
On July 7, 2017, Takeoff was asked to leave a flight from Atlanta to Des Moines, Iowa, after he reportedly refused to move his bag from the floor to an overhead storage bin prior to takeoff.
