The group made their debut with the mixtape Juug Season. The project was released independently as a digital download. Even before it was released, its Soundcloud trailer gained many likes and views.
Migos released their second mixtape titled, No Label. Quickly following its release, one of the tracks, “Bando,” became a hit and caught the eye of record producers Zaytoven and Coach K, the same producers who launched the rapping careers of Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane.
Their third mixtape, Y.R.N., dropped this year featuring artists such as Gucci Mane, Trinidad James, RiFF RaFF and Que. Rolling Stone magazine called it the best mixtape of the year. The tape peaked at number 74 on the Top Hip Hop Albums in the US with 500,000 downloads online making it their first charting record. Their single “Versace” was released soon after and gained popularity quickly bringing the trio into the limelight. The song was remixed by a few popular artists including Justin Bieber, Adrien Broner and Swagg Man. Offset also worked on a couple solo projects during the following few months.
The next mixtape, No Label 2, debuted as one of the best albums of 2014 by Complex featuring a few singles and later that year released another titled Rich Ni**a Timeline.
Migos released their first studio record, Yung Rich Nation, a mix of trap and hip-hop which sold over 14,000 albums within the first week. It eventually peaked at number 17 on the Billboard Top 200 list and number 3 on the Top Rap Albums chart.
The boys’ most popular single to date, Bad and Boujee featuring Lil Uzi Vert, became an internet sensation sparking a ton of memes quoting the lyrics “rain drop, drop top.” The music video currently has over 474 million views on YouTube and the single has been certified four times platinum. Offset actually made a guest appearance on the comedy Atlanta.
