What’s up citizens this ya guy Rob Markman with The Rob Report, where we break down music for the game’s hottest artists. This week we’re going to the ATL to check out the debut album from Migos Yung Rich Nation.
Migos came out of the gate on fire in 2013 when they dropped their breakout single “Versace” and since then they’ve dropped hit after hit over the course of several mixtapes and on their debut Quavo, Offset and Takeoff raise the stakes with more radio ready tracks like “Just For Tonight” with Chris Brown and street-laced joints like “Cocaina” with Young Thug
Migos are young and already left their mark on the game thanks to their infamous Migos flow. But they spend a number of tracks on the YRN album reminiscing on the past, instead of living in the moment. “Memories,” “Recognition” and “Migos Origin” find the trio resting high on their laurels instead of setting more trends.
The group absolutely shines on tracks like “One Time,” “Pipe It Up” and “Dab Daddy” and experiment with different sounds on the NWA-inspired “Highway 85” and banging “Gangsta Rap.” Still, with all of the growth Migos has exhibited over the past two years with their mixtape grinds I was expecting something more.
Young Rich Nation is solid, but doesn’t fully capitalize on the Migos hype. so I gotta give this an 6.5 out of 10. But that’s just my opinion. I want to know what do you think. Hit me @RobMarkman on Twitter. I talk back.
