The two major narratives of 2017: Migos and Ellen’s hunger for hip-hop guests.
It was only a matter of time before these stories intersected, and on President’s Day, it finally happened.
Ellen had Migos on to perform “Bad and Boujee.”
While the trio’s previous television performances have been criticized and considered polarizing at best – it’s admittedly hard to recreate the unhinged visceral energy of the group’s jams surrounded by expensive television equipment – their stop on Ellen has to be their best small-screen set yet. With a motif from their Culture album in the background, the trio managed to engage the crowd while keeping their momentum rolling.
