Almost exactly one year after dropping their chart-topping Culture LP, Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset plan to unleash the sequel in January, according to The New York Times.
In September, Offset called the upcoming sequel a “masterpiece.” Quavo added: “We in a time right now where we’re setting the trend. We started this whole little wave. We started the whole genre, we started the whole flow, we started the whole melody. Ain’t nobody right now, at a point in their career, can’t say that they ain’t took our flow. We ain’t trippin’. We never did trip. We never did call nobody out. We’re just having fun. We’re creating a whole new sound. Hip-hop has changed in a big way so you could mark this down as we changing.”
In October, the Atlanta trio released the lead single, “MotorSport.” Featuring rumored foes Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, the song became fodder for conspiracy theories and peaked at No. 14 on the Hot 100.
But Culture II is just part of a larger Quality Control plan. Before the year is over, the label plans to release its Quality Control Presents: Control the Streets, Volume 1 compilation on Dec. 8 and Lil Yachty’s Lil Boat 2 in late December.
The original Culture debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and went platinum by April. The project spawned “Bad and Boujee,” which hit No. 1 on the Hot 100, and “T-Shirt,” which peaked at No. 19.
