What’s happening on the streets of New York City is changing the way you see hip hop culture, and now you can be part of that.
The Migos music is making a comeback in a big way.
In a rare interview with The New Yorker’s Vogue, Migos rapper and producer Lil Uzi Vert said he’s seen a resurgence of the music he helped create in his hometown, which he calls his home.
“We saw a lot of people start listening to it because of the culture jam,” Vert told Vogue.
“It became something of a national movement.
And we saw a resurgence in that.”
Vert’s statement comes as New York is grappling with a national culture of culture jam.
In a statement to the New York Times, the New Jersey-based Migos said it was inspired by the rise of music by Black Lives Matter protesters, which inspired the music to be released.
“Our music was inspired to begin with by Black youth who felt disenfranchised by the police, disenfranchised as a result of a culture of impunity and disregard for the rights of others,” the Migos statement read.
“The fact that it was also inspired by people who experienced violence, the loss of loved ones, or an assault in the name of their culture, changed the way we see ourselves and the way people of color view us.”
“As a community, we saw an opportunity to start to take the music from the street and put it in the hands of young people to help them create a better, more vibrant world,” the statement continued.
“It was time to give back.”
