Culture II, the follow-up to Migos’ wildly successful 2017 album, is set to drop next week. During the trio's promo rounds, they stopped by Real 92.3 in L.A. and revealed an unexpected name behind some of their new beats: Quavo. Apparently, the rapper has been dabbling in the production side of music making, with the help of none other than Kanye West.
As XXL points out, Quavo’s new skill was revealed when the radio host asked the Migos what producers they’ve been working with for the new project. “My boy Qua been going crazy on the beats,” Offset replied.
Quavo then spilled some details about learning the trade, including his experience working with Master West himself. Quavo says he admires Ye for his commitment to the craft. “I've been going crazy on the fingers, you dig?” Quavo said. "I did a couple beats with Kanye, me and [DJ] Durel. It's crazy. He's got a crazy, different feel. He's got all his old shit that he had from like coming in making beats and he still use his original box and his original keyboards. He's still got his old hard drives, and all his samples and all the beat. Just to see that he still cherish the old stuff that he came in with, know that he still respect the grind."
Like many greats before him (shout out to Soulja Boy), Quavo is using FL Studio to produce but didn’t give anymore details on what we can expect his beats sound like. No word on if, or how many of Quavo’s tracks made it onto Culture II, but hopefully we get to hear a crazy Kanye/Quavo production collab soon.
Migos' Culture II album comes out on January 26.
