The Atlanta-based hip-hop trio, known for its catchy and consistent trap music style, has been around for over a decade. Since its inception in 2008, the group did not reach full popularity until late 2016. They may not particularly like their lyrics, but the way these rappers flow in their songs is what makes their fans want more, and their exciting beats keep the party going.
Although the trio has grown stronger and stronger since then, it is important to note that two of them, Offset and Quavo, have established themselves as solo artists in equal measure. They have also collaborated with several prominent artists and currently have several solo albums in the pipeline. Here we take a look at each member of this group, their path to success and how much they are worth. You will also learn how they earn and spend their money.
Background Details Of The Migos Members
The hip-hop group consists of three members whose connections go beyond professional relationships. It consists of Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset, and all three have direct family ties to each other. While Quavo and Offset are cousins, Takeoff happens to be the son of Quavo’s older sister. Let’s meet them downstairs.
Born on June 18, 1994, in Lawrenceville, a suburb of Gwinnett County near Atlanta, Georgia, Takeoff is the youngest member of the trio. He was raised with his uncle Quavo and his cousin Offset by his single mother. These three practically grew up like brothers. He attended Berkmar High School in Lilburn, Georgia, and besides rapping, he also plays the keyboard.
Offset was also born and raised in Gwinnett County. His real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, and he was born on December 14, 1991. His father, whose name is not known, left him when he was young, and although his mother, Latabia Woodward, played a role in his upbringing, a substantial part of it was taken over by Quavo’s mother. He also attended Berkmar High School before his youthful lifestyle brought him to the Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, Georgia. He is not only a rapper but also a songwriter and has written some of the Migos songs. Offset’s father of four is married to his American rapper colleague Cardi B since 2017.
The oldest of the trio, Quavo, was born on April 2, 1991, in Athens, Georgia, as Quavious Keyate Marshall. He lost his father when he was four years old, and his mother, Edna Marshall, was a hairdresser. He also attended Berkmar High and was even a star quarterback at the school before dropping out in his final year of school, just months before graduation. In addition to his work as a rapper, Quavo has also established himself as a singer, songwriter, and record producer.
The Migos’ Music Exploits And Achievements
Although they are currently considered one of the leading hip hop groups in America, the Migos’ journey to fame began a long time ago. As the story goes, Quavo and Takeoff first caught the rap flu, with the former dating back to eighth grade. Other kids made fun of Quavo back then, and as a loyal cousin, Offset was always there to support him. Quavo soon convinced him to try rap, and together with his nephew, the three formed a group that they originally called the Polo Club in 2008.
At that time, music was still an after-school activity for them, since they were all still in high school. Their first official full-length mixtape, Juug Season, was released in 2011, and another, No Label, followed in 2012. The following year they released their debut single Versace, and unlike the first two releases, this one actually gained some recognition and even reached its peak on the poster with the number 99.
In June 2013 they released a mixtape entitled Y.R.N, with Versace as the lead single. Y.R.N. ranked so high on various music charts, and this was the beginning of their breakthrough. Two years later, the Migos released their first studio album Yung Rich Nation, and although they were already touring and earning tens of thousands of dollars with their live performances at that time, their worldwide breakthrough came with Bad and Boujee, a single from their second studio album Culture, which climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, their first No. 1 in the US.
So far, the group has released four albums, including Yung Rich Nation (2015), Culture (2017), Culture II (2018), and Culture III (2020). With the exception of Takeoff, which seems to focus only on Migos, the other two members have released both solo albums and singles. They have also started joint projects with many other popular artists outside the group.
How Rich Are The Migos And How Do They Spend Their Wealth?
The group’s collective net worth is estimated at $50 million in January 2020. This comes as no surprise since a 2018 report on Forbes found that the trio earns no less than $150,000 per tour stop. Since their formation, they have toured extensively to promote their albums. Apart from that, the Migos members have no known collective ventures as a group, so most of their money comes from selling albums and concerts.
The net value of the members varies according to their other, undisclosed ventures. Quavo and Offset, for example, earn some extra money from their collaboration and solo releases in addition to other money-making ventures. However, the collective net assets of the group are said to be worth just over $16 million per member when divided equally.
When it comes to spending money, the Migos own many assets, including villas, exotic cars, and jewelry. They reportedly own several villas in Atlanta and Beverly Hills and a fleet of luxury cars including Rolls Royce, Lamborghinis, Mercedes, and many more. The trio, at some point in the past, gifted Takeoff’s mother with a house and a car in recognition of what she has done in her life.
