The hip-hop trio Migos was founded in 2009 in Lawrenceville, Georgia by three relatives, Quavo (real name Quavious Keyate Marshall), Takeoff (real name Kirshnik Khari Ball), and Offset (real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus).
In August 2011, Migos presented the debut mixtape Juug Season. Their next mixtape No Label came out next summer.
In 2013, the band made a breakthrough by releasing a single "Versace". The song made it into Billboard Hot 100, reaching the 99th spot. It was enough to make the band famous. The Canadian rapper Drake created a remix of the song. It appeared on iHeartRadio Music Festival and brought Migos impressive popularity. The next mixtape Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas) came out in June. It received good reviews from many critics.
By the end of 2013, "Versace" could be seen in many “best single” ratings. Mixtape Y.R.N. made it to the 27th spot of Spin Magazine’s best album rating. The magazine also called the album the 6th best hip-hop album of the year. Migos started getting a variety of offers to play at private birthday parties.
