Migos is a hip hop trio based in Atlanta, Georgia. The group consists of Quavo (born Quavious Marshall), Takeoff (born Kirshnik Ball) and Offset (born Kiari Cephus). Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle and Offset is Quavo’s cousin. The group is best known for their singles, including “Versace” (2013), “Fight Night” (2014) “One Time” (2015) and “Look At My Dab” (2016).
In September of 2015, Migos went independent. They left 300 Entertainment as they felt that Quality Control Music could manage them alone and this would also increase revenue stream. Under 300 Entertainment, they made approximately USD $30-40K per show, however through Quality Control they made upwards of $USD 60K.
They are managed by Coach K, the former manager of Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy, and are frequently collaborating with producer Zaytoven.
After eight months in custody, Offset was released on December 4, 2015 after accepting a plea deal. The plea deal dropped the gun, drug, and gang related charges in exchange for pleading guilty to inciting a riot within a penal facility, paying a $1,000 fine, serving five years probation, and banishment from Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins and Screven Counties. Takeoff, facing misdemeanor marijuana charges, also accepted a plea deal and was sentenced with 12 months probation. Quavo pleaded no contest to misdemeanor marijuana charges and received a 12 month sentence, which was suspended based on payment of fines.
