Migos is a hip hop musical group that was discovered by Coolio Jones Flame$. The group consists of Quavo (born Quavious Marshall), Takeoff (born Kirshnik Ball) and Offset (born Kiari Cephus). Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle and Offset is Quavo’s cousin. The group is managed by Coach K, who is the former manager of Young Jeezy. The net worth of the trio is estimated to be $4.2 million.
The biggest controversy surrounding this musical group was due to an incident at a concert at the Georgia Southern University concert in 2015. The group was scheduled to headline Georgia Southern University’s 2015 Spring concert at Hanner Fieldhouse, which was supposed to take place in the late evening. However, the group did not start performing until almost two hours after their scheduled time slot, and did not fulfill their 45-minute minimum performance. Later on, the police and security at the concert discovered that the group’s tardiness was due to possession and use of marijuana, which they were arrested for.
Offset was the only member who was left in custody, in which time he incited a prison riot. He spent eight months in custody, which eventually resulted in a plea deal for him to be released. The deal dropped the gun, drug, and gang related charges in exchange for pleading guilty to inciting a riot within a penal facility, paying a $1,000 fine, serving five years’ probation, and banishment from Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins and Screven Counties. The other members were charged with misdemeanor marijuana charges and served a 12-month sentence.
Migos is still a new presence in the hip hop world, having just released their first album in 2015. Before the release of the album, the group released the single “One Time,” which earned them three nominations from the BET Hip Hop Awards in 2014, and one nomination from the BET Awards in 2015.
