Bad and Newsie: Your Weekly Migos Update (Fourth of July Edition)

On this day in the middle of summer we come together to shoot off fireworks, eat hot dogs, and celebrate our founding fathers, DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, and Afrika Bambaataa, and the vision of freedom and funk they imagined for our Hip Hop nation.

As we shotgun beers today, let us not forget how great of a country we live in thanks to these three New York City men and how Migos continue to flourish in it.

We live in a country so full of diversity and culture, and language is often a way that we are able to express this. Migos try their best to learn about the culture of those around them.


We live in a country where people are encouraged to stand up and fight for what they believe in. For Migos, the fight is all about getting the respect they deserve (which is often centered around Joe Budden being the worst).

Finally, we can’t forget that we live in a country where “Bad and Boujee” has been on the charts for 32 weeks. I’m sure this is exactly what Kool Herc wanted when he threw his first block party.
