Atlanta rap trio Migos performs at the Showbox on Monday, Feb. 22, with all three of its members now that one of them, Offset, is out of jail.
Migos, the brash, at times subversive Southern hip-hop trio, is bringing its repetitious lyrics and trunk-popping beats to the Showbox on Monday (Feb. 22) for an all-ages show.
The group, who many credit with inventing the Dab (the arm-centric dance NFL MVP Cam Newton made famous this football season), rose to fame in 2013 with the hit song, “Versace,” and has since garnered millions of YouTube clicks for tracks like the twerk-happy “Hannah Montana” and the status-centric “Chinatown,” in which the group boasts about its wealth and accomplishments.
Migos is composed of members Offset, Quavo and Takeoff — and for those keeping score, Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle and Offset’s cousin.
The Seattle show, part of the “Dab Tour,” comes on the heals of Offset’s release after spending eight months in a Georgia jail. He was arrested in April on drug and gun charges after a botched Georgia Southern University concert where Migos also allegedly breached its contract.
