Did Migos Change The Sound Of Rap Forever?


Migos and Zaytoven seem to believe Migos changed the sound of rap forever. Quavo and Take Off sat down with VLAD TV and expressed that they feel like they changed all genres forever. Quavo stated that he truly wishes they received the respect that he feels they deserve. Migos feel like everyone is now rapping like them with the same flow and style. With their popular hit singles and features like Drake, they feel like the underdogs despite feeling like they’ve contributed a lot to music. They said that they must have something for Drake to rap like them on their own song (“Versace” remix). Apparently after Drake’s verse was heard is when others tried to mimic their flow by using the “eighth note triplet flow”. To change the rap game forever, it seems like one would have to bring something original. Many say Migos just made a flow that already existed popular again.

Did Migos really change the sound of music forever?

    That’s a big hell no! These boys just lucked up with their sound, which previous artist had the flow already like Gangsta Boo, Lord Infamous, etc pretty soon in a few years or months we gone be like Migos who? Bc they damn sure ain’t original and talk about the same trap life every other “trapper” spits

    • ursocalledgod

      • Syn

        I’m not a bruh and just go listen to his flows, they’ll tell you everything you want to know

      • ursocalledgod

      You mention Gangster Boo. Even Lord Infamous too. The difference is that those rappers didn’t influence other rappers of their era to switch up their flow. Hate them or love them, Migos caused Drake, Meek Mill, Kanye, J Cole and numerous others to change up their flow. Even French Montana changed his on Moses. So what they are speaking is facts and they need to be respected in the game for influencing their peers.

      Gangsta Boo dont sound Shit like Migos. Never Have, never will

  • Real Talk

    it’s sad to watch real rappers try to sound like Migos

  • Slickeye Villain

    It’s a phase everyone will move on eventually just like when everyone was using Ace Hoods flow and where is he today?

    • Ipullcards

      That’s true. But if they were the ones to popularize the “eighth note triplet flow” lol.. Then they deserve some credit. Idk how much but it’s def being done by every lame rapper.. Including Drake.

    • Syn

      Ace still is underrated lol I like Ace though Starvation 4 was alright his previous ones was better

    • jeweliano

      I think his status dropped around the time that bezel fell off his watch a while back.Something as petty as that can ruin a rapper these days smh

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        Sad.

  • Dan_Tebasco

    Considering how crap rap is currently I don’t think that’s anything they should brag about but more be ashamed of

  • ursocalledgod

  • Obi Won

    Nothing new, just a refreshing, todays version of Tear the Club Up Thugs.

  • Riko7467

    these n1ggas are trash and the atl aint the south.

    • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

      You retarded ATL is the Heart of the South. Everybody knows this.

    • Nemesis_Enforcer

      And New York must be the west coast.

  • Executive

    Lmao! Stop it!

  • SoulFul Epic

    If you want credit for ruining hip hop … put on the crown then with that bullshit … Wack ass rappers totally ruining the creativity from developing in mainstream hip hop.

    • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

      Dont blame them because damn near every “Real” rapper stole their Style.

      • WORLD DOMINATOR

        How can you ‘steal’ something LAME & UNORIGINAL to begin with?!@#!

      • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

        By copying it and selling it like its your own.

      • SoulFul Epic

        Im a realest … If you think they did, I can agree every rapper sounds the same these days with that bullshit. Where it started, I have no clue cause its infected all coasts. I know it definitely started in the south and if Migos wants credit for that, much respect for that stolen trash.

  • Marvel

    If you think about it, money ruined hip hop nobody is really hungry no more like in the 90’s, every rapper rap about the same shit money and hoes lol

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    Everyone is definitely biting. “Forever”is kind of strong. Flows have been bitten and played out over and over again. Nothing last forever.

  • WORLD DOMINATOR

    Oh we can BLAME THEM for Killing Hip Hop!
    Wack sayin’ NOTHING lyrics, lame music,& f*cked up attitudes……..Yeah they ‘accomplished’ a lot!?
