Sunday night (January 8) Donald Glover selflessly took some of his time in the spotlight to show love to Migos and their single “Bad and Boujee.” The actor/rapper also known as Childish Gambino shouted out the ATL trio and their current banger at the Golden Globes Awards during his acceptance speech for Best Series Musical or Comedy for Atlanta. Backstage at the Globes, Glover explained his big-ups.
“I think they’re the Beatles of this generation, and they don’t get a lot of respect,” Glover said of Migos. “I think outside of Atlanta… Not that they don’t get a lot of respect, but there’s a generation, outside the YouTube generation that I kinda came up with. There’s a generation of kids that are growing up on something that’s completely separate from a whole group of people. And honestly, that song is just fly. There’s no better song to have sex to. “
Migos did appear on Atlanta as drug dealers during its debut season on FX, and Glover acknowledged their cameo onstage during the Globes, but concentrated his praise on “Bad and Boujee.”
“I really want to thank the Migos. Not for being on the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ That’s the best song, ever.”
The Migos’ Quavo took to Instagram and thanked Glover. “Respect at the highest level,” he wrote. “@childishgambino. CULTURE.”
