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 didnt none of them wanna come with five million. Theyd 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 Im 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.
