Migos Slippery is the latest single off their HOT and platinum selling album album ‘Culture’. Their previous single ‘Get Right Witcha’ was one of the best cuts off the album and Slippery isn’t far behind with the help of the ultimate OG, Gucci Mane. Let’s get into it.
Migos Slippery – The Video
The visuals for Migos Slippery has a Miami backdrop and is co-directed by frequent collaborator DAPS who also played a hand in the “Bad and Bouji” visuals. The video is a mix between cinematic visuals and homemade style scenes from Quavo’s birthday party from what they say on the net, I mean I wasn’t there so I can’t confirm. There is so much water and honeys in this video, you would have sworn the Migos had the Flu! Gucci Mane makes his appearance on the hood of a strawberry red Rolls Royce; it is a hip hop staple.
Migos Slippery Production and Sonics
The Production credits go to Deko and OG Parker whose customary drop is heard at the beginning of the reccid. The tune starts with Quavo who drops another stellar verse melodically and then comes with the hook also.
Pop a perky just to start up (pop it, pop it)
Pop two cups of purple just to warm up (two cups, drank)
I heard your bitch, she got that water
(Splash, drip, drip, woo, splash)
Slippery, ‘scuse me, please me (please)
I’m up, oh, believe me, believe me (believe me)
Get beat, ’cause I’m flexin’ ‘Rari’s (skrt)
You can bet on me (skr, skr, hey, hey, hey)
I won’t go too deeply into the bars because it is a redundant task however the bars laced with drug, money and sexually charged imagery is what is popping! And Migos are the best at it in 2017. Offset drops a strong verse and Gucci Mane and Takeoff round it off. Gucci has made a legacy out of his ‘slippery’ unorthodox flow which he produces effortlessly. Takeoff may have had the standout verse of the whole song. There has been a lot of chatter recently about Quavo and Offset taking the solo route, so maybe this was a statement performance. The Youtube comments were definitely showing love to Takeoff.
Migos Slippery Rating – 7.5/10
Migos are consistenly producing high quality catchy music which doesn’t have that corny feel and that plagues a lot of artists during their ascension. I don’t think Slippery quite reach the heights of “Get Right Witcha”, however it has a chance to stay in replay this summer. 7.5 is the verdict.
