The Migos are proving that they are more than just rappers as they diversify their profile with a new business venture. The Atlanta trio has partnered with a Canadian company to roll out a very fresh three-wheeled motorcycle called the Ryker.
West Coast producer Mustard and Migos have finally come through on their new “Pure Water” music video. After days of teasing, Mustard hit the “go” button Thursday and released the Colin Tilley-directed visual to the masses.
While Offset was making his rounds promoting his solo album, Father of 4, he stopped by Hot 97’s E Bro in the Morning and made a comment that may rub veteran rappers the wrong way.
The Migos rapper discussed the backlash new artists get from the seasoned ones. Although beat production heavily carries a song filled with drug-using misogynistic lyrics now a days, Hip Hop dethroned Rock as the number 1 genre in the country.
According to the “Clout” rapper instead of hating on the young rappers, the older artists should be “kissing feet” for their contribution to mainstream Hip Hop.
“If you’re an older artist, you should be thanking us, kissing our feet. Not just the Migos… Hip-hop has never been the No. 1 genre ever. Right now when you go to Spotify, you’re not seeing the other genres [like] pop, country.”
He added, “Because of how streams is, people are listening to hip-hop more than any other time. So you should salute us, we made this bigger than it ever was. You fought for it, you set the tone, your style is just different.”
Apparently Lupe Fiasco caught wind of Offset’s comments and he sounded off on Instagram. “The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hip-hop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life.”

Atlanta rapper Offset needed more than 60 minutes to dish on everything happening in his life. The hip-hop star pulled through this week for a Q&A with radio veteran Big Boy to dish on everything from his personal side to business grind.
Atlanta rapper Offset is having a tough time feeling sympathy for Tekashi 6ix9ine. The hip-hop star has weighed-in on the jailed rap artist working with prosecutors in his felony racketeering case.
In a new interview, Off said Tek’s decision to turn his back on the streets could ultimately hurt him.
“My OGs tell me, ‘You get in that water, you better know how to swim.’ You a grown man, at the end of the day, you’re a grown man. Grown man make grown man decisions – you choose the streets and you go left on the streets, your safety is a problem now because you chose the streets – I don’t believe in that. I’ve been arrested a lot of times, 13 or something like that, and you take responsibility. Just like my album, I’m saying it, you gotta take it in the chest.” (Real 92.3)
According to reports, 6ix9inewill likely avoid having to face the minimum of 47 years in prison by cooperating with prosecutors.
The U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York agreed “not to prosecute  for the crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine.” So, various crimes are off the books. In addition, prosecutors agreed not to go after 69 for crimes he told prosecutors about but have not yet been charged. The plea deal also says, “It is understood that the defendant’s cooperation is likely to reveal the activities of individuals and that witness protection may be required at a later date.” It’s unclear how much time prosecutors will ask for, but it appears the number of years may be in the teens … maybe even less.

New York rapper Fabolous and Offset have no shame in being prouds pops to a few kids. Loso went to Instagram Sunday to share a slideshow of pics flexing his own daddy duties steez alongside the Migos member at his Father of 4 album release party.
