In one Billboard interview published Monday, June 7, the member of the hip-hop trio believes that the rappers have picked up the pace of the group, but did not give them their due credit.
“It’s a fact. If you go back in time and listen to music before 2013, the cadence and bitrate didn’t matter. It was more about the bars and what you say,” explains Offset. “Now people just get away with saying nothing as long as the cadence and throughput are right, and I feel like we created that. We did.”
“Set thinks people seem to have forgotten their hip-hop history and the artists who had a big impact on rap culture.
“I remember when Quavo was the most influential in 2013. There’s just no respect, but that’s how my generation is anyway, ”he says. “A lot of children don’t know and respect Tupac Shakur. It’s just mind-blowing. I just think you have to keep proving people who you are. And that’s fine with me, because it’s the story of my life. “
Elsewhere in the interview, Offset also acknowledges himself, Quavo and Lift-off so that trap music becomes widespread.
“We made this trap [style] go pop “, the Father of 4 tells the rhymer. “They don’t talk about that. We did trap go pop talking about selling books and bricks, and we hit Billboard # 1. Hip-hop artists weren’t going to # 1 like that, but now it’s just ‘bang, bang bang.’ “
The Migos have a big week ahead of them. the ATL trio are about to release their long awaited album Culture III Friday (June 11). Last week Quavo revealed he has a song starring the late Pop Smoke on the project.
