American Hip Hop trio Migos sparked breakup speculations as Offset unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff on Instagram yesterday. Fans are wondering if the close-knit rappers are disbanding. One fan even wrote, “Migos breaking up would be worse than the Beatles”. So is it true? Read on to explore more.
Offset’s Move is Disheartening
“Versace” stars Quavo, Takeoff and Offset seem to be going in different directions as Takeoff as Offset made a surprising move on Instagram on Wednesday. The American rapper unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff. Not just this, Cardi B also added fuel to these rumors of disbanding by unfollowing the two.
The news arrived on the same day Takeoff and Quavo announced that they will be dropping new music under a new musical duo name called Unc and Phew, a nod to their familial ties. The song is titled “Hotel Lobby” and it arrives on May 20th.
Millennials are almost sure that the most famous Hip Hop trio may have decided to go their separate ways. If you recall, in a 2018 interview with XXL, Offset spoke about their solo releases. He said, “This shit is just showcase. We just wanted to show the world that it can be done and you still be the home team. But the group is for all the shit.”
Fans are calling it the death of rap by combing a series of events. One fan expressed his sadness by tweeting, “Rap is dying. thug arrested, Migos may have split, keed died, wtf is going on this week man.” As for the question, if these speculations are true, we can only say that yes, maybe! However, there is no official confirmation yet but something is wrong. Here are some of the reactions from fans.

The Migos having possibly broken up is sad but makes sense to me. It’s been clear for a while now that they were never going to make an album as good as Culture together again.

The Legacy of Migos
Migos are an American hip hop trio from Lawrenceville, Georgia, founded in 2008. The group is composed of three rappers known by their stage names Quavo (Quavious Keyate Marshall), Offset (Kiari Kendrell Cephus), and Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball).
Migos released their commercial debut single “Versace” in 2013, taken from their mixtape Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas). The trio released their debut album Young Rich Nation in 2015 under the label of Quality Control Music and 200 Entertainment.
Their second album, Culture, was released in January 2017 and debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart. Culture II (2018) became their second number one album in the US. Migos went on to release several more singles like Fight Night and Look at My Dab, and include songs that have made a mark on Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 entries. They include:
- “Bad and Boujee” (featuring Lil Uzi Vert) (2016), peaked at number one
- “MotorSport” (with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B) (2017), peaked at six
- “Stir Fry” (2018), peaked at eight
- “Walk It Talk It” (featuring Drake) (2018), peaked at ten.
Last year, Migos released their long-awaited fourth album Culture III, the third and final instalment of their award-winning Culture trilogy. However, things have been bitter since then, and now the Instagram move by Offset has raised more doubts. What do you think about this?
