The two Grammy nominated artists release a smooth bop just in time for Summer!

No Guidance gives all the praise to the apple of their eyes. Ladies, this ones for us. I’m wondering what the rest of Chris Brown’s album, Indigo, will sound like. It’s said to, like his famous mixtapes to contain about 30 songs. Who else could be on the feature list?

Stream No Guidance below and stay tuned for the latest in entertainment news.

Migos: A Cultural Treasure

Takeoff, Quavo, and Offset…the Migos.

The North Atlanta natives have taken the music world by storm. Having already been widely known for hits like Bando and Chirpin, the Migos’ career skyrocketed when Drake hopped on the remix to one of their biggest songs to date: Versace.

Just in case you needed a reminder of the super single:

After the success of the upbeat bop, the Migos became the hottest group out. Going on to cross genres and collaborate with the likes of Frank Ocean, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Calvin Harris, and Fall Out Boy to name a few.

Where did this triumphant trio come from?

Quavious, Kiari, and Kirshnik, or; Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff are from Lawrenceville, GA. The nawfside of Atlanta. The rap group formed in 2009, but the three have been woven into each other’s lives from birth. Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle and Offset’s cousin.

Having such a close bond only made for better chemistry. (They lowkey are Destiny’s Child lol) Shortening the Spanish word for “friends,” their creativity and ingenuity speaks before you even get to hear their music.

Family ties make great for performing acts. Take The Jackson 5, The Wayans Family, Tia and Tamera Mowry…the list goes on.

Not only are the Migos music legends, but they’re also fashion icons. Drawing inspiration from the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. They’re not the first artists to take inspiration from these legendary artists and certainly won’t be the last. Saying this, Migos has more than likely inspired a number of artists in the industry right now, as well as up and coming artists. There are probably kids out there sitting in their bedrooms right now listening to Migos and checking out sites like upyourplays, wishing they could release their own music, in the hopes of being as big as these guys! It is not impossible, as they are proof it is possible.

Check out this video of the three expressing their eye for design and explaining MJ’s impact as they prepare for the Grammys

”I really want to thank Migos for making Bad and Boujee, it’s the best song ever.” – Donald Glover at the Golden Globes

The Migos received kudos across the board. Actors, singers, and athletes alike have all given praise to the trifecta.

Glover continues to say that the Migos are “The Beatles of our generation and don’t get enough respect.

A notion that I fully back. Subsequently, Bad and Boujee peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list, ironically knocking down Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane’s Black Beatles. After reaching the #1 slot, Migos released their second studio album, Culture.

The album featured songs like: T-Shirt, Slippery ft Gucci Mane, Call Casting, and Get Right Witcha.

A year later they released the sequel, Culture II.

This time there is something different about the Migos. A bolder sense of confidence and creativity. This album features production from Hip-Hop elites Pharrell Williams & Kanye West as well as Metro Boomin, Ty Dolla $ign, OG Parker, Zaytoven, and Quavo himself.

The group has continuously sought out more engaging visuals for their music. Take the progression of their video narratives. They’ve successfully gone from 2 minute music videos to short films. Short films in which we get to see a glimpse of their personalities and what influenced them as children.

The videos for their singles Stir Fry and Walk it Like I Talk it, are especially fun to watch. They both bring a sense of nostalgia. In Stir Fry the trio assume the roles of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the 90’s classic Rush Hour. In the video for Walk it Like I Talk it, they take it back a littler farther, to our parents’ generation. On a full blown replica set, the Migos partied like it was the 70’s on Soul Train. With Drake and Jamie Foxx in cast for extra laughs.

Soul Train served as a cultural oasis. Giving a platform to R&B, soul, dance/pop and hip hop artists, funk, jazz, disco and gospel artists.

And this ladies and gentlemen is why the Migos are culture treasures. In a span of fives years the Migos have taught us what a Bando is, they’ve given us fiery ad-libs to spice up our boring conversations—MAMA! They love Michael Jackson. Impressed Trap gawd LaFlare Gucci Mane. They’ve redefined male fashion, taught us how to dab accurately and overall they keep giving us nothing but the HITS!

We must protect and cherish the Migos at all costs.

Roles Reverse in Mahalia's "I Wish I Missed My Ex"

Usually when a relationship or situationship has ended, it’s usually the ladies calling for closure. Not this time.

Mahalia is an actress, singer, and songwriter hailing all the way from the U.K. who has been breaking her way into the U.S. music scene. She’s been writing music since the age of eight and acted in a UK based movie, Brotherhood. The singer has released a few EPs featuring production from frequent collaborator to Drake, Nineteen85.
“I Wish I Missed My Ex” is a breezy walk in the park. The cheerful beat negates the heartbreak associated with ending relationships. Mahalia beats her counterpart to the punch of falling out of love faster:

Every time the weekend comes, yeah
I know that it won’t be long, yeah
Til you‘re gonna call my phone, yeah
You’ll be like ‘Babe, come over’
I know how this goes, yeah
Talk about you need closure
Too many missed calls, too many texts
Damn I wish I missed my ex

Drake Gives us The Degrassi Reunion we Didn't Know we Needed

Drizzy has returned
If you used to watch The-n, then you are familiar with one of the craziest high school dramas; Degrassi. This is what introduced the world to Aubrey Drake Graham. Then, he was known as Jimmy Brooks. The show centered around the lives of teenagers and the woes of adolescence. Degrassi covered a lot of tough topics, including school bullies and school shooters. The show was a guide for many teens struggling and looking for something to relate to. This is why the reunion made such a huge splash.
Following the Pusha T bomb was silence. Drake has finally gotten his ducks back in a row. In perfect Drake style, the marketing genius chose not to respond to The Story of Adidon with another diss, but instead to distract and disarm us with the cast of Degrassi (and it worked)! Check out the video for I’m Upset below.

Although I love the I’m Upset video, Drake still has to hold this L!

Pusha T Drops a Bomb on the 6 God

GOOD Music’s President and front runner Pusha T, released his third studio album, DAYTONA, May 25, 2018.

The album’s first song, Inafred, took direct shots at the Young Money camp. More specifically, Drake and Bryan “Birdman” Williams. The long standing feud between the camps was refueled with DAYTONA’s release.

Push revisits Drake’s writing companion Quentin Miller, Birdman’s draining of artists, and his responsibility to rebirth rap. Drizzy didn’t take too kindly to the shots. In response, he released “Duppy Freestyle” and “I’m Upset.”  In the response records Drake attacks Pusha’s career, Kanye West, mentions his fiancé, and refutes his claims of kingpin level drug dealing.
Drake urges “Don’t push me when I’m in album mode,” and Push does just that. After letting the 6 God’s tracks linger, he drops “The Story of Adidon.” Pandora’s box is opened as Pusha T airs sketchy business over Jay Z’s “The Story of OJ.” Alledging that Drake has a secret child by an Adult film star. He also shreds his character and drags Dennis Graham (Drake’s father) into the beef.
