I was not always a Migos fan.
I didn’t dislike them; I was just unfamiliar with much of their music. Two things changed that for me: Cardi B and their collaboration with Gucci Man on “I Get The Bag.”
“I Get The Bag” still gets regular, consistent play in my car as I drive through Los Angeles selling drugs in my head.
Needless to say, I’m hip to a lot of Migos’ music now, and I can identify them individually by name.
So when the video of them participating in James Corden’s regular bit “Carpool Karaoke” popped up in our work Slack today, I was intrigued and I watched.
They did not disappoint.
Not only did they perform parts of “Walk It Like I Talk It” and “Bad and Boujee,” but they also performed Cardi’s verse from “Motorsport”—and as The Root’s resident Cardi-ologist, you know that was right up my alley.
The trap rappers also surprised Corden with a bag that contained more than $200,000 in cash and took him clothes shopping.
They performed bits of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and then added their signature Migos ad libs to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.”
All in all, it is the best 14 minutes and 8 seconds you will spend today as you watch it.
