One of the most known Atlanta Rap trio, Migos, recently dropped an 18-track mixtape “Rich Nigga Timeline”. The mixtape holds 18 new records with production by 808 Mafia, Cheeze Beats, Murda Beatz, Zaytoven, and many more. Right now, Migos is demonstrating what it takes to be on top of the music industry. Based off of their flow, affinity, ability and sound they remain unimpaired and by the looks of it they’ll maintain that way for a while. This mixtape sets the bar based of Quavo’s rhythmic pattern flow style that he emphasized, shifting that dactyl meter. The dactyl flow consist of a long syllable followed by two short syllables also known as syllable weight. This form of flow is used by many artists but nothing like Quavo’s twisted style. Also, Offset proficient raps whom is honored for one of the best rappers in a group brought excellence to this mixtape. It is inevitable to that Migos clearly knew where they were going to take this mixtape. The different production teams presented in “Rich Nigga Timeline”, comes together to deliver excellence in each track pushing each individual to showcase their Rap trio originality. Atlanta may have gained one of the best Rap trios that has reached fame and many thought “Versace” was good because Drake was an addition to the track.

Aside, from the mixtape dropping another recent breaking news has been going around the cyber world. Having Quavo’s chain-snatched during their visit to Washington, D.C. allegedly accusing Chief Keef’s GBE crew in Chicago. I guess nowadays artists stay chain-snatching instead of creating understandable music because half of the time Chief Keef confuses me. Then again with the mixtape “Rich Nigga Timeline” dropping just shook many people because their production is on point. Chief Keef might be one of those that Migos recently shook off his seat with these tracks. Either way, I think it is worth every listen.

If you are eager listener to Drake, Future, Waka Flocka, and Gucci Mane, you’re going to enjoy this mixtape. The production of 808 Mafia and Cheeze Beats with the collaboration of Migos fits well. From head banging, lifting your hands, and going 0-100 real quick is exactly what it brings. Think about this is just the mixtape meanwhile they finish off the album. Personally, mixtapes brings more to the table instead of an album for me because it showcases their finesse. Either way, I encourage you to stop for a bit to go through these tracks.

Honesty
It clearly elaborates each segment of their life and the upbringing they encountered. From their momma giving them advice to the real struggle of eating cold turkey due to being poor. That’s called a real struggle in this cold world. Migos then goes about how they want their women to pop it nasty, so they can dive in that pussy while shaking that ass.

    The way she shake that ass, she make me wanna make a million babies’ — ‘Pop That’ track

How can you get mad at that?, clearly they know exactly what they want with them.
Migos continously shares how they were at some point in their life to the rich life they carry today. What each decision brough them and where it took them. Paying homage to basically the streets and everyone living the life. Shares many words of wisdom through the mic is one of the best ways. Loyalty amongst yourself and your friends is something Migos holds on to.

Composition, Production
It features production from one of my favorite San Francisco producer Zaytoven whom later moved to Atlanta. He worked with many notable Atlanta artists such as OJ Da Juiceman, Young Jeezy, and non-Atlanta artist Nicki Minaj. Zaytoven took Migos up there in the game with the ‘Versace’ track and he is seeing all over this mixtape. Aside from Zaytoven, the collaboration with the different producers shown in here gives it a variety to equally enjoy.

Wordplay
If you are someone that appreciates beats and rhymes that evenly flow across the board, you can follow through with every piece. Migos style is like a chain of reaction that keeps elevating to another side. The trio presents their music without overkilling–over doing it but perfectly following their individual craft. Understandable lyrics to correctly in tune for any listener willing to take advantage of this masterpiece.

Relatable
Very obvious that it is relatable to many aspects in life (or in the real world). From your very first struggle to how far you’ve come in life. I definitely found myself thinking about my past and how far I’ve come in life. From the lifestyle to trappin’ in the bando, it’s relatable to many individuals.

Lessons
Whether you are someone struggling in this world or an artist in this industry, there is something in this mixtape for you. I caught myself moving to each beat to rapping along with them. Each piece of this mixtape was set to be in there to mean something in your life or surroundings.


My Top 4 Tracks

“Story I Tell”
“Struggle”
“Pop That”
“Rich Nigga Timeline”

These are four of my favorite tracks on the mixtape but my ultimate favorite is the ‘Struggle’ track. Reason being that it speaks about life–the real world in this cold world. It goes from speaking about the struggle before the fame to women poppin’ their goods ending with the come up of fame. These four tracks are something that everyone can relate to because in life we can go through the struggle or the ‘skruggle’ as some say nowadays (me being one of them). Then after the struggle, success comes along the way. Everything just flows and it connects the dots in each track. However, I’m curious to hear what’s your favorite track is on this mixtape.
