Migos "Stir Fry" video breakdown

Rush Hour 4 | Migos – “Stir Fry” Video Breakdown

Migos have returned with Culture II, the Atlanta trio’s third studio album clocks in at a monstrous 1 hour 45 minutes. We all know what to expect from Quavo, Takeoff and Offset by now. So much so that we were able to review the project six months before it came out and got it mostly right.
