Three reasons Offset is the best member of Migos

Versatility, dynamics, and a refusal to become overexposed.

Disclaimer: Migos is the perfect example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, but…

Offset has the most versatile flow. Whether it's the chorus on "Bad and Boujee," going in hard and spitting fire on "Headlock," or softly floating and changing his tempo on "Dipset," Offset can do it all. This kind of versatility is only possessed by him.

Offset doesn't oversaturate. When comparing Offset to Quavo, the defining divisive point are the songs they choose to feature on. At this point, it seems like Quavo is on his way to selling out. After collaborating on songs with the likes of Halsey and former One Directioner Liam Payne, to name a few, it's beginning to seem like he's doing features strictly for the money. And when the money trumps purpose and passion as your driving force, you lose touch with your music. Meanwhile, Offset seems to be leveraging his stardom to put on the new wave of rappers and ones that aren't exactly mainstream (Sauce Walka, Philthy Rich, Cousin Stizz) to stay loyal to the music.

Offset brings the dynamics. Without Offset, the group would be bland. He's a better lyricist than Takeoff and delivers more catchy hooks than Quavo. With few points against him, Offset quite literally offsets the dissymmetry of his bandmates and elevates both of their best qualities.

Ultimately, Offset needs the group as much as the group needs him. Can you imagine that Migos would have had this much success if one hadn't have been a part of it?
