Earlier this week, the actor shared an edited video of himself lip-syncing “Walk It Talk It” to Instagram. He mouthed the chorus of the song and even included the band’s signature adlibs. 

In the caption, he wrote, “Yo, @migos, y’all need a fourth member?” He also gave credit to the creator of the clip, Instagram user @cache_bunny.

Migos accepted Smith’s offer by re-posting the video on their Instagram page and adding the caption “honorary Migo.” Their post had been viewed nearly 900,000 times as of Friday morning. 

Many fans were happy Smith received the title. Several suggested the actor, who’s also held down a successful career as a rapper, be a part of Migos’ next album.

“He better be on Culture 3 as a feature then lol,” one commenter said. Another replied, “This is a good move.” And someone else said, “i love this!”
