Migos Bring The Trap To NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk’ (Home) Concert Series
Los Angeles, Ca – Instead of trapping out the bando, the Migos brought the trap to the trendy streetwear brand Gallery Dept. for the latest installment of NPR‘s Tiny Desk (Home) concert series on Wednesday (August 25).
With the Los Angeles-based 1500 Or Nothin’ ensemble and DJ Durel holding them down, the Migos ran through a trio of tracks from their Culture III album, which dropped in June.
The Atlanta trio hops around the quaint room featuring vintage decorations and an aesthetic from a hoarding couple of the ’80s. They kick off the concert with Quavo setting the tone on the DJ Durel-produced “Avalanche” with Offset and Takeoff following suit.
Next up, the Migos head into their C3 standout for a little bit of “Straightenin.” The energy’s through the roof for the Grammy-nominated crew while a motionless astronaut remains sitting still on the couch.
To cap off the set, the Migos end on a high note with “Birthday,” which is fitting as Quavo struggles to find his lighter until Takeoff provides some assistance and Huncho lights up a decorated birthday cake sitting on the coffee table in front of him.
Culture III debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 behind Polo G’s Hall of Fame album. Their fourth studio LP earned roughly 130,500 total album-equivalent units in its first week, made up of 106,000 SEA units, 22,500 album sales and 2,000 TEA units.
