Quavo declared Culture III “the greatest album of this year” in a recent interview with Complex. “I feel like this album going to open up the world. We’re having fun and smiling again,” he said. “Everybody’s been hurtin’, and going through this pandemic, and losing loved ones. I feel like this is a breakthrough. This is the sonic boom to the new life and new world that we live in. We’ve been going through this pandemic for like a year-and-a-half.”
Migos originally planned to release the third installment in the Culture series last year before the pandemic. “We haven’t dropped any music in three years. The year that we was going to drop, the pandemic hit. So I just feel like it’s a breath of fresh air,” he explained.
Culture III will also feature a “really, really, really hard record” with late rapper Pop Smoke. “We got some good guys on there. We got our good friends on there,” Quavo revealed. “It’s going to be the greatest album of the year. We put our blood, sweat, and tears into it. We had a lot of time to go over and a lot of time to bond and be together with this album.”
Culture III releases on June 11.
