Quavo Shares 'Culture National Anthem' Snippet in Honor of Martin Luther King Day
After watching fans clamor for a Quavo verse on the country's National Anthem last August, the Migos frontman elected to create his own version alongside a new video in honor of Martin Luther King Day (Jan. 14).
Titled "Culture National Anthem," Quavo uses old footage of Martin Luther King Jr. being escorted by police and taken into custody after a protest. "Mama told me break out of these chains and son you'll go far," he croons in Auto-Tune. Despite the somber lyrics, Quavo sprinkles flavor onto the record with his colorful ab-libs. In an interview with TMZ last August, Quavo relished the idea of revising the 203 year-old "Star Spangled Banner."
“There’s a lot going behind the national anthem,” Quavo told TMZ. “I would love to do it, but I wanna do a 2017 national anthem for both people and all races. Something that’s representing now. Something that representing the modern day national anthem.”
As for Migos, they just announced the release date for their hotly anticipated album Culture II. The project will drop Jan. 26. Currently, "MotorSport" sits at the No. 8 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Check out "Culture National Anthem" below.
