What does success look like for Atlanta three-piece, Migos? A number one single, a critically beloved album, and, apparently, a tour of Mike Tyson’s pigeon coop (for the love of Birds in the Trap).

Their music is buoyant, funny and skillfully direct. They give you energy and make it look easy.

Quavo, born Quavious Keyate Marshall, and Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball, are uncle and nephew. They have the same delicate skin, interrupted here and there around their eyes by small tattoos.

He doesn’t rap or get featured as much as Quavo – but he has helped in part to making the group a success

In 2015, Migos put out their debut album, Yung Rich Nation. It sold a disappointing 15,000 copies the week of its release.

Even before that, they’d had the uncanny experience of watching things they’d popularised, like the dab, speed through pop culture without them.

‘My diamond’s a choker’ – these are words of Offset on their hit song ‘Bad n Boujee’

When their first hit song, ‘Versace’ was released, Offset spent much of that time watching Migos songs become hits while he sat in a cell. Then he came home famous.

‘I ain’t get the opportunity to get coached until being a star,’ Offset says. ‘I came straight into this shit.

‘The whole ‘Versace’ shit, I wasn’t in the video. I missed out on all that. I came home as a star. I had a lot of money. I was wilding, I was being young, I was just living and experiencing life, though.

‘So I ain’t got no regrets. You got to grow up and mature when you see you’ve got something going for real.’

After Quavo, Offset has got himself quite a number of fans as well.
Meet the group’s head Huncho, Quavo.

Quavo carries himself with the easy confidence of a former high school quarterback, which he is.

And this video proves just that.
