The song is the first release from Migos’ forthcoming album ‘Culture II.’
Just last week Quavo teased fans tweeting, “Wait til you see who executive produced Culture 2,” sending the Internet into a frenzy guessing who it could possibly be and when the project would be coming. That time could be near, with Migos releasing their first single off of Culture II, enlisting industry superstars Cardi B and Nicki Minaj for “Motor Sport.”
The trio previewed the track Thursday night (Oct. 26) at Power 105.1’s Powerhouse show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, officially releasing the song Friday (Oct. 27). The CuBeatz and MurderBeatz-produced song sees over five minutes of bars with Quavo even taking a shot at the New England Patriots ‘Deflategate’ scandal rapping, “Xans, Percy, check / Bill Belichick / Take the air out the ball / Just so I can flex.”
Migos also kicked off their next LP in a major way, featuring both Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. The “Bodak Yellow” star not only references Daddy Yankee’s 2004 smash hit “Gasolina” in her verse, but she also deems herself the trap version of the late queen of Tejano, Selena Quintanilla: “I’m the trap Selena/ Dame mas gasolina (skrrt)”
A toast in her own right of contemporary female rap, Cardi’s ambitious statement — comparing herself to an icon whose musical legacy remains culturally vital and dearly beloved — has ironically been speculated to be about Minaj, as some fans have suggested that Cardi and Nicki’s verses on their first official collaboration are actually about each other.
