Migos members Quavo and Takeoff performed at the Highline Ballroom in Manhattan, New York yesterday (July 30). The day before the release of their debut album, YRN: Yung Rich Nation, the rappers reflected on their journey from the mixtape days.

“We gon’ be around for a long time,” Quavo says to VIBE. “We had fun recording this album. We had to man-up on this album. We had to get serious and hit all aspects. We had to graduate. That’s what you got to do reach all people across the nation.”

Offset is in prison for narcotics and weapons charges. The crowd chanted for his freedom throughout the night.
