Atlanta hip-hop trio Migos—aka Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff—could’ve hung up their microphones after releasing “Versace” last year. Though MCs have been rapping in praise of highfalutin fashion lines for decades, while Migos have existed only since 2011, these twentysomethings made an art form out of simply repeating the name of just one—they repeat the word “Versace” dozens and dozens of times over a stuttering, sinister beat brightened with bell-like samples. A cosign and remix from Drake (who added his own verse) not only helped make “Versace” a hit but also inspired dozens and dozens of MCs to do their own remixes. That said, Migos have more going for them than one brainlessly euphoric song—the similarly blunt and repetitive “Hannah Montana” hits the spot when it’s blasted out of club speakers, and “No F*ckin Wit” (from February’s No Label II mixtape) drapes oddly contorted Auto-Tuned vocals atop a bittersweet track from buzzy Atlanta producer Metro Boomin. After listening to a few other Migos tunes, though, I find myself wanting to hear “Versace” again. —Leor Galil
