Between being drug dealers on Donald Glover’s Atlanta to partnering up with Popeyes, it is clear the Migos do not care what the public thinks about the way they get their bread. The Atlanta trio is joined by Travis Scott and Young Thug to reiterate this sentiment on, “Give No Fxk,” the first single from Culture III.
The gluttonous single is produced by Murda Beatz, who previously produces the group’s chart-topper “Motorsport” and Scott’s “Butterfly.” The psychedelic visual for “Give No Fxk,” directed by Quavo and Kazakh filmmaker Aisultan Seitov, displays a photosensitive seizure warning before diving into scenes of futuristic gothic chaos.
The dirty south crooners are no strangers to trading verses. Quavo most notably joined Thug on Scott’s double-platinum single “pick up the phone”—one of thirteen officials releases (among a stockpile of demos) between Scott and Thug.
Following the release Culture II in 2017, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoffreleased their respective solo albums in late 2018 and early 2019. Their forthcoming album is the group’s fourth studio album and third in the Culture series.
Scott and Thug are both scheduled to perform the second day of Rolling Loud Miami, so attendees should keep an eye out on possible guest appearances. Rolling Loud will be Scott’s third headlining set in less than one month after headlining at both weekends of Coachella.
Migos, Travis Scott, and Young Thug have teamed up for a new song called “Give No Fxk,” “GNF” for short. The all-star pairing debuted the track live last year at Scott’s Astroworld Festival. It’s the first new track attributed to Migos in a while. While each member of the trio has been pretty … More »

At the end of 2019, rap is the most popular form of music in America, and maybe in the entire world. We know this. The data bears it out. But one thing that the data doesn’t quite show is us that rap, like every other genre of music in our atomized age, is not a … More »
For many of us, 2019 has been a year of flux — politically, culturally, professionally, personally. It’s hard to envision what the future might bring since the recent past has shown us that we don’t know half the things we thought we knew. In unsteady times, music can be a balm and also a mirror.

“From doing records from sampling, I started learning the science about what happened to soul music,” the Alchemist told me 13 years ago. One evening, at New York’s Baseline Studios, I sat in a backroom full of ancient, dusty records, and I listened to the Alchemist and Just Blaze talk about disco. The … More »
When this decade began, MP3s still reigned supreme. Now, at the end of it, a song is no longer even a file — it’s ephemera, on every streaming service and available to hear in myriad ways. For better and worse, the song (and the single) have become the norm for the general public’s music consumption. More »
A decade is an arbitrary measurement. They seem confined, these neat little symmetrical 10-year runs, but it’s only in hindsight that we define them, that their signifiers and trends and shorthand become codified. In reality, there are bleeds, the timbre and events of one chunk of time sliding over the border into another. If you’re … More »
