After collaborations with the likes of King Louie, Plug Migo has delivered an epic full length in Migo God
Chicago's Plug Migo has slipped through my fingers. You may be surprised that I'm feeling his music, as I've been adamant about not liking this new wave of hip hop. At first glance you might label his new mixtape just that, but Migo God is so much more.
It's been over a year since his debut EP, and it's obvious from the jump that he's found his sound, and perfected it. Like Migos, the MC has an ability to turn topics that may sound bleak into something energetic and catchy.
He can still rap, as evident on this project, but his power lies in the structure of his songs. It was genius for Migos to keep it at 9 tracks, but at the end I was craving more. If this is your first introduction to dude, you'll most likely become a fan by the end.
The production is insane, and I wasn't surprised to learn he did most of it. There are warbly electronic cuts, trap fused bangers, and even some experimental instrumentals. Don't sleep on I'm The Man, a stand out beat by iLLeeT. I was excited to see King Louie link with Mikey Dollaz on the Skrrt Skrrt freestyle. Mikey really shined on Migo God, securing two excellent features. Still Malcolm Flex and Sway Money (also featured) contributed just the right amount of autotune and rhymes.
I highly recommend at least giving this a full listen. I've learned to challenge the way I hear music; staying open to anything. I recommend you do so as well.
