Were Migos Denied By All Late Night Shows Before Donald Glover’s Shout Out?
In hilarious or offensive news [depending on how you take it lol], Jimmy even poked fun at them awarding them with the strongest weed smell of all time. He said they even out-smoked Snoop Dogg.
Although fans were excited to see them on Kimmel, apparently it wasn’t always that easy to get booked on mainstream late night television. Although the song sits on top of the BIllboard Hot 100, it looks like many television networks were reluctant to put the rap trio on television.
Quality Control boss Pierre “Pee” Thomas recently sat down with The New York Times and revealed that networks once gave Migos all kinds of excuses for why they couldn’t make appearances or performances on the late night shows.
“They gave all kinds of excuses—not the right time, it’s not this, it’s not that,” say Thomas.
Apparently the turning point came when Donald Glover shouted them out at the Golden Globes.
“As soon as Donald Glover did that, the next day, all the people who had just denied us wanted them on their show,” he said.
SMH politics! Well then again, timing is everything, so I’m not sure they really needed to be on there before this song. But “Bad And Boujee” is infectious lol.
Migos better have done something really nice for Glover to thank him. All it takes is one moment to amplify your career. Good for Migos!
