OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Update video link



The camera pans out over a stark, unforgiving landscape, riding high above a snow-covered mountain ridge blanketed with evergreens. Three weary travelers appear, draped in enough fur to make a PETA supporter break down into tears. An imposing bearded figure and likely Game of Thrones extra breathes life into a fire—the only respite you’ll find amidst the dreary wilderness with nightfall approaching—before a copper pot is laid atop the flames. A pot filled with... a Pyrex, of course. No, this isn’t an alternate screenplay for The Revenant, nor is it me divulging my latest installment of Hateful Eight fan fiction, because that doesn’t exist (I swear). Instead, it’s the new music video for the no-frills-titled "T-Shirt," the latest offering from hip-hop’s favorite three-headed monster, Migos, and holy shi* you need to see this. Currently at the peak of their commercial prowess, thanks to the meme-fueled explosion of their “Bad and Boujee” single, the Atlanta trio is readying the release of their second studio album Culture, and it’s clear the three water-whipping wise men have a few more tricks up their luxurious pelt sleeves. After dabbing in the latest fashion out in Lagos, Nigeria for “Call Casting” earlier this week, Lords Quavo, Takeoff and Offset of House Migos swap out intense African heat for fur coats and Aztec print loungewear in a more frigid locale. Quavo also handles directorial duties, along with behind-the-lens specialist Daps (who divulged that the group "climbed a mountain and battled subzero temperatures for this video"), for the visually stunning cross between ATL flexing and Alaskan Bush People. I'm sure there's some semblance of a storyline here too, but that's not important. The record itself, produced by Nard & B, is more of a laid-back slow-burner versus the uptempo bounce of “Call Casting” or the ominous knock of “Bad and Boujee," and serves as another delicious appetizer from Culture, due out January 27 via Quality Control Music and 300 Entertainment. Some highlights for the lazy: Quavo shoots a bow. Takeoff feeds whipped cream to an excited female companion. Offset watches his female companion sip hot chocolate through Kurt Cobain shades. Adorable huskies are present. Their song Bad And Boujee was namechecked by Donald Glover at The Golden Globes a few days ago, as he collected his award for Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical for his show Atlanta, as the "best song ever". Now Atlanta's own Migos are feeding anticipation for the new album Culture, with three new videos – including this one directed by DAPS and bandmember Quavo for T-Shirt. There's a big nod to The Revenant, and also to the aforementioned Bad And Boujee. Migos like hanging out with the most glamourous ladies - and treating them well.

Song Lyrics:

Seventeen five, same color T-shirt

[Hook: Quavo]

[Takeoff]
Young Ni**a poppin' with a pocket full of cottage (ay)
Woah kemosabe, chopper aimin' at your noggin (ay)
Had to cop the Audi, then the top I had to chop it (skrt skrt)
Ni**as pocket watchin', so I gotta keep the rocket (glaw)

[Takeoff]
Neck water faucet (water), mocking birds mocking (woo)
Act pint, stocking, nats keep thotting (nats)
Wrist on hockey (hockey), wrist on rocky (Rocky)
Lotta Ni**as copy, name someone can stop me (no one)
Bi**hes call me papi, (bi**h!), 'sace that's my hobby ('sace)
Scotty on the molly, pocket rocket from O'Reilly
One off in the chamber, ain't no need for me to c*ck it
Ni**as get to droppin' when that draco get to poppin'
All I want is cottage, roll a cigar full of broccoli (Cookie)
No check, want all cash, Ni**a I don't do deposits
Bi**hes cross the water, Ni**a, bi**hes from the tropics
I'ma get that bag Ni**a, ain't no doubt about it (yup)
I'ma feed my family Ni**a, ain't no way around it (family)
Ain't gon' never let up Ni**a, God said, show my talent
Young Ni**a with the anna, walkin' with the hammer
Talkin' country grammar Ni**a
Straight out north Atlanta (north side)

[Takeoff]
Young Ni**a poppin' with a pocket full of cottage (ay)
Woah kemosabe, chopper aimin' at your noggin (ay)
Had to cop the Audi, then the top I had to chop it (skrt skrt)
Ni**as pocket watchin', so I gotta keep the rocket

[Hook: Quavo]

Seen it with my eyes, dope still alive, (dope)
Real mob ties (mob) real frog eyes(frog)
Real whole pies (woah), all time high
Do it for the culture (culture)
They gon' bite like vultures (vulture)
Way back when I was trappin' out Toyotas (skrr skrr)

Space coupe, Quavo Yoda, pourin', drankin' sodas

[Offset]
I get high on my own sir, heard you gon' clone sir
Stop all that flexin', young Ni**a don't wanna go there
Never been a gopher (no), but I always been a soldier
Young Ni**as in the cut, posted like a vulture
Divin' off the stage in the crowd it's a mosh pit
Yeah shawty bad but she broke cause she don't own shi*
Mama asked me "son, when the trappin' gon' quit?"
I been ridin' round through the city in my new bi**h

[Takeoff]
Young Ni**a poppin' with a pocket full of cottage (ay)
Woah kemosabe, chopper aimin' at your noggin (ay)
Had to cop the Audi, then the top I had to chop it (skrt skrt)
Ni**as pocket watchin', so I gotta keep the rocket

[Hook: Quavo]
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (white)
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
