Ahead of making their long-awaited return with Culture III on Friday (June 11), Offset wants to make sure the Hip Hop culture puts some respect back on the Migos’ name. Set chopped it up with Billboard on Monday (June 7) and made bold claims about how the ATL trio was the first to make trap music infiltrate the pop world and dominate the Billboard charts.
“We made this trap [style] go pop,” Offset declared. “They don’t talk about that. We made trap go pop talking about selling pounds and bricks, and we hit Billboard No. 1. Hip Hop artists weren’t going No. 1 like that, but now it just be ‘bang, bang, bang.'”
Give credit when credit is due

When asked about David Banner’s comments regarding artists stealing the Migos’ flows and not giving credit, Offset agreed with the Mississippi native’s assessment.
“It’s a fact,” he concurred. “If you go back in time and listen to music prior to 2013, the cadence and the flow didn’t matter. It was more about the bars and what you’re saying. Now, people get away with not saying nothing as long as the cadence and flow are good, and I feel like we created that. We did. I remember when Quavo was most influential in 2013.”
Culture III arrives on Friday (June 11) and Migos will look to make it three consecutive No. 1 albums atop the Billboard 200, but come next week, they will be battling Polo G’s Hall of Fame for the top spot.
Quavo already predicted C3 will be the “greatest” album of the year and Offset expects to “lead the pack” as well. The album is set to feature Drake, Polo G, Pop Smoke, Justin Bieber, Juice WRLD, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Future.
“I think we did a great job with the way we bouncing the three flows,” said Offset. “We not just doing one verse and one verse, we’re switching it up. We doing things other people can’t do because we the only group. We got creative with our flows so we could stamp another. We feel like we gonna lead the pack with this album.”
