Migos Cover FADER’s Now Issue

blame it on Meka November 5, 2014

Those Atlanta boys are readying their latest drop, Rich N*gga Timeline, for release sometime today, and today have graced the cover of FADER’s 95th issue. In their interview the trio – as well as Lyor Cohen, the co-founder of 300 Entertainment (the label which they are signed to) – speak on their journey, their current agreement with 300, their long-in-the-works debut album, and more.

Some choice quotes:

On signing to 300:


We turned down every label. We turned down Def Jam, RCA, Atlantic,” he says. “I wanted five million dollars, but didn’t none of them wanna come with five million. They’d come with one, two, two-point-five. But we already came in the game with that. When Migos came out, Migos had real Rolexes on. Migos had real Versace on. The ‘Versace’ video cost us $100,000, you feel what I’m saying? We already came in the game with money.


On Drake’s guest take on “Versace”:

“It was a gift and a curse. Sometimes I really wish he had never jumped on it—; it was gonna blow without him.”

(Ed. note: somehow, I don’t think that Drake making their song hotter can be considered a “curse”)

Anyways, you can read the whole piece here.
