These days, a viral snippet can go a long way in sparking hype for a track. Prior to the release of Migos’ Culture 3, which arrived in full eighteen-song glory last night, many were keen on hearing the full version of “Modern Day,” mistakenly titled “Modern Day Stroll.” Fueled by a vengeful Quavo, who sounds notably focused on the album as a whole, the track seems to be a welcome return to the vintage Migos sound.
Produced by Murda Beatz, “Modern Day” finds all three Migos letting off hard-hitting bars in their own fashion; though they certainly tend to favor a few specific themes, they’ve certainly mastered their delivery of said themes. Opulent jewelry, high-fashion, fast cars, and deadly firearms — the Migos checklist, with all boxes ticked. As for landing on a standout, the trifecta tends to operate as a high-functioning unit, making it difficult to single out a single performer. One thing is certain — Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff continue to shine over Murda Beatz production, and “Modern Day” is an early standout from their new album.
