Migos working on ‘quarantine mixtape’ ahead of ‘Culture 3’ release

Migos Music Facts Migos' original group name was Polo Club. They inspired a limited-edition Popeyes Chicken menu delivered by Uber Eats. Takeoff, Offset and Quavo have all had solo success. Offset is married to fellow rapper Cardi B. In 2018, they broke their own record for the most simultaneous hits on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart.

Quavo tweeted the Lawrenceville natives are working on releasing new music ‘just to keep’ fans ‘straight’

Migos fans will have to continue waiting for the highly-anticipated “Culture 3” album to drop, but they won’t be without new music for long.

According to Quavo, the trio is working on releasing what he deemed a “quarantine mixtape.”

"Quarantine Mixtape?? Jus To Keep Y'all Straight. Then Culture 3. When All This Is Over!" Quavo, whose real name is Quavious Keyate Marshall, tweeted in part April 3. He added that the mixtape, an apparent throwback to Migos' beginnings in the rap game, will be out "ASAP."

New music being on the horizon shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans. Quavo previously told Billboard magazine he and his group members have been spending their time in the recording studio while being mindful of social distancing and hand washing during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve been spending most of our time working in the studio working on our ‘Culture III’ album and going back to the house and staying away, playing games and spending, like, three, four hours on ‘Call of Duty’ and back to the studio,” he said.

Quavo has also used the time away from the public to give back.

After streaming his 29th birthday party live on Instagram over the weekend, the rapper announced his charity, Quavo Cares Foundation, is raising funds to provide personal protective equipment to medical professionals in Atlanta and Los Angeles.

“For my birthday, my foundation, Quavo Cares, is donating and raising money to provide very needed gowns, masks and face shields for front line health care professionals in Los Angeles and Atlanta,” he said in a video.
