How to tell the difference between the Migos and the Wu-Tang?
The two iconic hip-hop groups that once dominated pop culture may be headed back in different directions.
The Migos, which are the largest and most popular rap group in the world, are headed by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg and have made some significant changes in recent years.
In a new documentary titled The New Migos: The Rise of the Wu, producer and actor Justin Bieber discusses the changes and the influence of the two groups on rap culture.
The film includes footage of the original members of the group and their roles in hip-hopping, as well as interviews with former members and current members.
In addition to the interviews, the film includes rare footage from the Wu’s recording sessions with Dr. Wu and Snoops co-founder Raekwon.
Among the film’s many highlights: The Wu-style “Y’all” is one of the most iconic hip hop tracks of all time.
A Wu member said the track was the first single released by the group.
“Y’ALL” was produced by Snoop’s label, Sony Music.
Dr. Wu is seen on screen during a Wu-influenced set of Wu-inspired shows in New York.
The Wu-produced Wu-Tapes were the first official recordings of Dr. Snoop.
During the Wu era, the group’s lyrics became so political that the group was accused of inciting violence and were eventually banned from the U.S. in 1992.
During his career, Dr. Drigga was known for his outspokenness, especially on social media.
In 2017, Drigged posted an article on his Instagram account.
The story, titled “We are the Wu and I am the Wu,” became a trending topic on Twitter and Facebook.
“We are not the Wu.
We are Snoop, Driggs, Dragga, Raek, and a bunch of other dudes from the future,” he wrote.
Dr. Driggas tweets are often provocative and often reflect on the current political climate.
In May, Driggga wrote: “Trump is now the president of the United States.
What an absolute shitstorm.
The country is being taken over by a bunch toadies, and I’m one of them.
And they’re doing everything they can to keep the people in the ghetto in a constant state of fear.
If I’m on Twitter, you’re probably going to know me.”
Dr. Dre tweeted in September that he was proud of the legacy of his hip-hops label, and he continued to be outspoken about race and social issues in his final years of life.
“I’m proud of what we accomplished together.
I’m proud to say that, if I was in a coma right now, I’d be proud to be a Wu fan,” Dre wrote in an Instagram post.
We’re not the one that’s changing.
We’ve made the most radical change in the history of rap music.”
Drigga’s death was announced Monday on Twitter.
As Drigging, Dre and Raekw, Dragoons music style of rap is heavily influenced by Wu-tapes, which was produced and mastered by Snoops label.
