Culture II is an album with everything.

Few album drops are followed by the amount of buzz Culture II got. Kids in class asked, “have you heard the new Migos album,” and cars blasted “Narcos” out their windows while parking.

Peppered with star features, the dense 24-track album is the 12th studio album from the rap group Migos.

Many of the top hip-hop artists of today are featured on tracks throughout, including 21 Savage, Drake, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and 2 Chainz.

Many of the most recent hit Migos tracks are on the album, namely “Motorsport” which featured verses from Cardi B and Nicki Minaj that stirred controversy when it came out as a single. There’s also “Stir Fry” which most recently was featured throughout NBA promos.

“Narcos” is one of the best tracks on the record with its Pablo Escobar referencing bars and Latin American sounding beat. According to an interview with Rolling Stones, they mentioned making the song in the South American jungle while on tour.

“BBO” is notable due to being produced by Kanye West. West’s trademark high-pitched vocal samples are present throughout the tracks beat and makes for a ethereal and otherworldly vibe.

Migos decided for a more pop-leaning song with “Gang Gang” which uses a beat akin to Justin Bieber. The song sounds perfect among other current top 40 hits.

Both “Made Men” and “Culture National Anthem” have soft and chill leaning beats. “Culture National Anthem” specifically incorporates a jazz piano into the beat, which sounds perfect behind Quavo and Takeoff’s relaxed bars.

Though this record has many great songs and simple but solid songs, there are also a few that remain forgettable.
Culture II will most likely stand as one of Migos’ best albums to date with a large cast of hit songs. Most likely come spring, kids will still be listening to songs like “Motorsport” and “Superstars”.
