Donald Glover’s Golden Globes shoutout to rap group Migos was a head-scratcher to some and a hilariously canny move to others.
After his FX show “Atlanta” won a Globe in the best TV series, comedy or musical category, on Sunday night, Glover said, “I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like that’s the best song ever.”
For the uninitiated, Migos is a local hip-hop trio that appeared on an episode of “Atlanta.” Their song “Bad and Boujee” recently cracked the Billboard Top 10. But Migos is not a household name in some places, and the shoutout prompted some teasing on social media.
Glover later explained that he offered props to Migos “because I think they’re the Beatles of this generation.” He also corrected a reporter on the correct pronunciation of “Mee-gos.”
Needless to say, Migos was thrilled about the mention.
