Migos play drug kingpins in new music video for 'Narcos'

The music video was co-directed by the group's very own Quavo, marking his directorial debut and also features a cameo from 21 Savage.

Hot on the heels of their victory at the 2018 BET Awards for Best Group this past weekend, Migos are back with a new music video for 'Narcos'.

As Pitchfork points out, the clip was directed by the trio’s own Quavo alongside Joseph Desrosiers, and marks the rapper's directorial debut. The video finds the Atlanta rap outfit following in the footsteps of drug lord Pablo Escobar and opens to a shot displaying the overwhelming excesses common to both worlds of hip-hop and the drug trade. We see Migos dine and sip champagne in their heavily guarded villa, counting massive wads of cash and showing off their speedboats. But things take a turn for the worse after a business deal gone wrong, culminating in a tense shoot-out with the DEA. The video also features cameos from fellow Atlanta rapper 21 Savage and Migos producer DJ Durel.

'Narcos' is taken from the Migos’ sprawling, chart-topping third studio album, 'Culture II'. At the end of July, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff will hit the road with Drake on one of the season’s most anticipated tours, aptly titled the “Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour”.
