Migos 

On the San Francisco stop of their Dab Tour.

Atlanta rap trio Migos are unsung pioneers of the current trap wave dominating mainstream hip-hop. The group exploded onto the scene with its infectious single “Versace,” which Drake further popularized through his remix of the track. Unfortunately, while Migos’ fame skyrocketed, one of its members, Offset, was incarcerated. He has since been released, but, perhaps due to its various run-ins with the law since its debut, the group has fallen short of living up to its pop star potential. However, its influence on the biggest rappers in the industry — including Drake, Young Thug, Rick Ross, and Soulja Boy — is apparent in the shift towards sing-song, melodic flows and hyperactive adlibs in recent years, and Migos certainly deserve their due credit. Their latest mixtape, January’s Y.R.N. 2, marked their triumphant return into the spotlight. Catch Migos on the San Francisco stop of their Dab Tour at the Regency Ballroom on February 17.
