Migos Recorded Some of 'Culture II' In South Africa

"We were just writing in the middle of, like, the jungle."

While in South Africa in October last year for their Culture Tour, which had Durban and Joburg, Migos managed to get some recording done.


As they revealed in their Rolling Stone cover story, the trio managed to lay down a few songs at a resort while in South Africa,

"We were just writing in the middle of, like, the jungle," Takeoff told RS. "Our backyard was, like, the trees."

The trio says the environment influenced one of the songs they recorded, as they're used to working in their own houses.

While the songs recorded in South Africa aren't named, Takeoff told the magazine: "[Quavo] saying 'straight out the jungle, straight out the jungle,' like on a Bob Marley kind of like Jamaican tip. We wouldn't have said that if we wasn't in the environment we was in."

The reactions to Migos' "writing in the middle of the jungle" comments have been, justly, mixed on social media, check out a few below.

Culture II is out tomorrow January 26. Revisit our coverage of the Joburg leg of the Migos Culture Tour here.
