You'd be hard pressed to find a rap group buzzing louder than Migos, the Atlanta trio that quickly rose to prominence in 2013 when Drake remixed their infectious mixtape cut "Versace" and transformed them from underground sensations into web icons. They've since ascended to greatness within Atlanta's bustling indie-rap scene with a signature triple-time flow adopted by everyone from Jay Electronica to Gwen Stefani; better yet, the boys managed to subvert one-hit-wonder status last year with "Fight Night" and "Handsome and Wealthy," which both cracked the Billboard rap chart's Top 20. They are one of the hottest acts on the planet, according to many unquantifiable web metrics; in fact, they might be better than the Beatles.
Such quibbles aside, the group's members—Quavo (born Quavious Marshall), Offset (born Kiari Cephus), and Takeoff (born Kirshnik Ball)—have clearly forged an unlikely path to stardom, and done so with a style that can seem homogenous to the casual listener. The strength of the trio lies in a palpable chemistry and a uniformity rooted in a brotherhood, of sorts—Quavo is Takeoff's uncle, and Offset is Quavo's cousin—but those same strengths have often led to a misrepresentation of their individual strengths and distinct personalities. So take the quiz below and discover which Migo (?) you are using standout moments from the Migos catalog! Yes, these are all real lyrics.
