Culture ll disappoints

Culture ll Album Cover.

With the release of Culture ll, Migos have done it again, topping the charts on Billboards top 200 albums and pulled in an impressive 199,000 equivalent album units in its debut. Migos are critically acclaimed and said to be the best rap group out there right now. Although some may say they are arguably one of the greatest groups of all time, this album is a disappointment to me.

Culture ll was released on January 26th, 2018, by Quality Control Music, Motown and Capital Records. It features guest appearances from Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Drake, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, TY Dolla Sign, and Post Malone. The album was collaboratively produced by Murda Beatz, Metro Boomin, Buddah Bless, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West (among others) but was executive produced by DJ Durel and Quavo, who happens to be 1/3 of Migos.

Honestly Culture ll is not all that, and it definitely did NOT meet the hype. I feel like everybody was making it sound like a masterpiece would be revealed by the all mighty and powerful Migos, but in reality it was just ad libs on top of ad libs and some repetitive lyrics. It’s quite a shame actually because the album was produced by many great artists.

I don’t know, maybe I just haven’t hopped on the mumble rap wave, but I don’t feel like they were even really rapping. It’s almost as if they knew they would make millions, so they just slacked. In fact, DJ Durel said, “We’ll do one song in twenty minutes. If they really want to take their time on it, they’ll take 40 or 45 minutes. Later, we’ll listen back for hours and make changes.” Twenty minutes? This just shows the lack of time and effort put into this album.

Migos will continue to make money and my opinion means absolutely nothing to them, but hopefully this helps you realize how hyped up a bad album can be.
