Ahead of Culture II's well-timed release, Migos joined Ebro Darden in the studio for a Beats 1 chat about linking with Skateboard P for the late 2017 single "Stir Fry" and much more.

According to Quavo, the track came together during a spontaneous recording session in Los Angeles. "We was in the studio in L.A. and he was in the next room," he said. "We had been running into each other, we've been cool, but he was over there working and he just stepped in because we just walk in everybody's sessions and it's love, and go to work. And he had, like, three or four beats, but the pack was from 2008, like, the old hard drive. He had the old pack. He said he was waiting on this moment. The genie way."

For "MotorSport," the Culture II single with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, the session was just as spontaneous. "We was in New York when we recorded that shit," Quavo said around the 3:25 mark in the video up top. "Murda [Beatz] was in the studio, making beats, and he came over and just dropped that thing off, and we went straight in."

Darden also spoke with Migos about their Best Rap Album nomination ("It's our time to take that Grammy home"), Joe Budden, Offset's Without Warning sessions, and the likelihood of a tour with Travis Scott and 21 Savage. Catch the full interview up top.

​Migos' appearance on Darden's Beats 1 show arrives amid controversy surrounding Offset's homophobic lyrics on YFN Lucci's "Boss Life." In the track, Offset says he "cannot vibe with queers." Following backlash, Offset said he wrote the line while "thinking of words that could rhyme" with the others. "I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E," he said. "I'm offended I offended anybody."
