Migos recall making "Bad and Boujee," demand proper recognition with 'Culture'

The ATLiens speak on their No. 1 single, album, and more.

Breakfast Club

With nothing but an onslaught of hits the past few years, the Migos definitely know what a hit sounds like. "Bad and Boujee" was no different.

"Offset brought it an played it for me. We was in the road," Quavo recalled this morning while he and his ATL group were guests on "The Breakfast Club." "He played it on the sprinter. I played it back five or six times. I had to come back home and get on it. It was too crazy."

Offset says contrary to his lyrics of "Droptops, rain drops," he was not inspired to author those words while driving a convertible when it started drizzling.

"I was at the house and I started recording," Set said. " I was about to record my verse and that just came out. I played it back and heard it, I said '"I'm finnin' to keep that."

When Takeoff was asked by the Breakfast Club hosts of DJ Envy, Charlamagne The God and DJ Envy why he didn't make it on the number one record, he simply said "just working."

Obviously, guest start Lil Uzi Vert didn't miss his opportunity to join in on the track.

"We was at the YO (studio), he asked me the first time I played it for him," Offset said of the collaboration.

Migos' new LP Culture dropped today. The group say the title is them coming for their proper respect.

"I ain't never seen nobody make these many hits and not get notified for it," Quavo lamented. "And change the game the way we did and not get noticed for it the big way. [The album title] made everybody look and say 'what these young niggas talking about?' It's some boldness on it. I feel like we just stand on our toes. We the culture, we brought so much to the game."

The Atlanta trio bring 'Culture' and more to the morning show.
