Migos’ “Culture III” album is finally arriving next week, on June 11. This comes after over three and a half years since the release of their last album, “Culture II,” in January 2018. Throughout 2021, the group has been hyping Culture III with trailers along with the release of their “Straightenin” single a few weeks ago.
In a new interview with Complex, Quavo discussed the forthcoming project and had some very high praise for it. He labeled it as the “greatest album of this year.”
“Greatness. The greatest album of this year. The greatest album of the summer. It’s back open. I feel like this album going to open up the world. We’re having fun and smiling again, you know what I mean? Everybody’s been hurtin’, and going through this pandemic, and losing loved ones. I feel like this is a breakthrough. This is the sonic boom to the new life and new world that we live in. We’ve been going through this pandemic for like a year and a half. So, we’re coming back with Culture 3. We haven’t dropped any music in three years. The year that we was going to drop, the pandemic hit. So I just feel like it’s a breath of fresh air.”
Quavo also added that in regards to features on Culture III, some of Migos’ close friends will be on it and again, emphasized how this will be the greatest album of 2021. Blood, sweat and tears were also said to have been put into recording Culture III. Regarding features, Bobby Shmurda and Pop Smoke are expected to be a few of them.
Quavo did recognize that people started sleeping on Migos after Culture II. This was due to the group not putting out any albums since then, with the exception of their solo albums that they started to release in late 2018.“Nah. That’s just the young generation.
“You leave the porch for two years, somebody’s gonna be sittin on it. But it’s not the throne. Cause we sit at the top and we respect everything that’s going on. But that’s just the youth. They got a short attention span. Like you said, it’s been three years. It’s time to take control and bring the spotlight back to the stage.”
