Quality Control hosts We Are The Culture with Migos and Lil Yachty
Rap superstars Migos and Lil Yachty and the rest of the Quality Control Music family were in London town last week for an exclusive We Are The Culture pop-up at East London’s XOYO. The event featured music from Capital Extra DJ Manny Norte, a pop-up shop with Culture merch, as well appearances from the Quality Control Artists Migos and Lil Yachty, ahead of their two night residency at Brixton Academy last week.
The We Are The Culture pop-up and Brixton Academy residency is celebrating Migos’ platinum selling debut album C U L T U R E, released in January 2017. Lil Yachty has recently announced details of his forthcoming debut album, Teenage Emotions, which drops on May 26 and features appearances from the likes of Diplo, Stefflon Don and Migos. The two gigs at the iconic London venue will be followed by a string of shows in the US from May to July. Migos will then be jetting back across the Atlantic for festival dates in Belgium, Amsterdam and our very own Reading and Leeds Festival.
The pop-up was a free public event and amongst the visitors was a handful of emerging Grime artists from the UK including Jorja Smith, Kojo Funds and AJ Tracey to name a few. We were lucky enough to catch a couple of them and Capital DJ Manny Norte for quick snap from our Quality Control branded social media photo pod – in return we got some free exposure on Instagram from Manny Norte!
