Migos Connects With YoungBoy Never Broke Again on "Need It"

Migos was formed in 2008, by Quavo (born Quavious Keyate Marshall), Takeoff (born Kirshnik Khari Ball), and Offset (born Kiari Kendrell Cephus), and they originally called themselves the Polo Club. The three members are directly related and were raised together; Quavo is Takeoff's uncle, and Offset is Quavo's cousin. The three of them grew up together in suburban Atlanta, approximately 40 minutes northeast of Downtown in Gwinnett County. "I ain't going to sit here like, 'My neighborhood was hard, and I had to get out there and grind.' We made it hard for ourselves. We chose to stay on the streets," Quavo said.The group released their first full-length project, a mixtape titled Juug Season, on August 25, 2011. They followed with the mixtape No Label on June 1, 2012. Assisted by Tucker Toenjes and Mitchell Thom2013: Breakthrough and Young Rich Niggas[edit]

In 2013, Migos released their breakout single "Versace". The single was produced by Zaytoven and peaked at number 99 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.[17][18] Later that year, Canadian rapper Drake brought the single more recognition when he remixed the song, adding a verse, which he would later perform at the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival.[19] On June 13, Migos released their mixtape Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas), which features the lead single "Versace", to critical acclaim. Brandon Soderberg of Spin gave it 8 out of 10 stars, commenting that it "is a super-cut of Dirty South vibes" and compared the three members to Gucci ManeSoulja Boy, and Future.[20]

On June 15, 2013, the group performed at rap radio station Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash. In October 2013, the group was featured in XXL's section "Show & Prove".[21] "Versace" was placed in multiple year-end lists of 2013, including number three on XXL's "The 25 Best Songs of 2013",[22] number four on Complex's "The 50 Best Songs of 2013",[23] number five on SPIN's "50 Best Songs of 2013,"[24] number 38 on Pitchfork's "The Top 100 Tracks of 2013"[25] and number 69 on Rolling Stone's "The 100 Best Songs of 2013."[26] Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas) was named the 27th-best album of 2013 and sixth-best hip-hop album of 2013 by SPIN.[27][28]

The song was previewed in January 2020, when a video of Offset and NBA YoungBoy recording it was surfaced online. Migos seemingly hinted at its release hours before it arrived.[3] On the track, the trio and YoungBoy talk about their intoxicating and violent lifestyles and how they will protect themselves.[4]
