The Migos made their return on Friday (June 11) with Culture III and fans couldn’t wait to get their opinions of the project off on social media. The often forgotten Migo, Takeoff, looks to be getting his respect from the Hip Hop crowd for his performance across the star-studded LP.

In an album that features Drake, Future, Polo G, Juice WRLD, Cardi B, NBA YoungBoy and Justin Bieber, it was Takeoff — Quavo’s nephew — that seemed to be having the flowers thrown his way and emerging as one of the early big winners.

Akademiks — a noted Migos superfan — was even impressed with Takeoff’s flows on Culture III.

“8 TRACKS In to the MIGOS album.. TAKEOFF done dropped 40 POINTS EVERY TRACK,” he wrote.

RapRadar podcast host Elliott Wilson also gave Takeoff the crown for his effort on album opener “Avalanche.” Just mere hours after the C3‘s arrival, an array of memes were born showing Takeoff love for his performance across the album.

“People are finally realizing that Takeoff is the best rapper in the Migos,” another fan said.

Takeoff was second in line for Migos solo albums behind Huncho, as the 26-year-old unleashed The Last Rocket in November 2018.

Culture III arrives over three years since 2018’s second installment. Looking for their third consecutive No. 1 album, the Migos will compete against Polo G’s Hall of Fame for the top spot. There’s no beef at all, as the Chicago native appears on C3 and shouted-out the ATL trio.
