Migos Net Worth 2020: $80 million
Rappers Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff formed a group and initially went with the name the Polo Club. The three are actually related to each other. Quavo and Offset are cousins while Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle. They all grew up in suburban Atlanta and Quavo’s mother Edna Marshall took care of the three. They grew up in a tough neighborhood but they worked hard and grind. Because of that, they were able to release two mix-tapes with the help of Mitchell Thomas and Tucker Toenjes. One was Juug Season on August 2011 and the other is No Label on June 2012.
Young Rich Niggas
It was in 2013 when Migos first tasted success. It was in the form of their single “Versace,” which was a breakout hit. The song reached number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100. On top of that, the song was even more popularized by Drake when he remixed it. The “Versace” song also reached most top musical charts. Migos released “Versace” along with their other songs in their latest mixtape Y.R.N. or Young Rich Niggas. The mixtape made it up to most hip-hop album charts, from top 27 to top six.
Yung Rich Nation
A year later, Migos released the sequel to one of their mixtapes No Label 2. Within the first week, fans supported the tape and it got over 100,000 downloads. Music critics gave the tape positive reviews, commenting on the album’s content for potential hits and victory anthems. Aside from that, they also praised the high production value of the mixtape.
Taking cue from that success, Migos announced the sequel to another mixtape called Y.R.N. 2 (Young Rich Niggas 2) in 2014. Luckily, they were able to turn the mixtape project into a full-pledged album and got 20 songs in. Migos had the opportunity to sign a deal with 300 Entertainment label.
Later in June, a single “Fight Night” was included in XXL’s list of “25 Best Songs of 2014 so far.” That assist boosted the song’s rankings as it reached number 69 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. “Fight Night” was included in their previous mixtape No Label 2.
Migos launched the first single from the Young Rich Niggas 2 album called “One Time” on February 2015 and a music video on March. The song climbed the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts at number 34. Migos finally released the album and called it Yung Rich Nation on July 31. Included in the album were prominent rappers and musicians such as Young Thug and Chris Brown. The album made it to the top 3 of the Top Rab Albums list.
On September, Migos decided to go independent and leave 300 Entertainment. They believed that they will increase their revenue with another record label named Quality Control Music. The group found out that they make about twice the revenue without 300 Entertainment. Migos would earn over $60,000 in comparison to the previous $30,000 per show.
Dabbing Their Way to Meme Popularity
Another achievement worth noting is when Migos was part of an internet phenomenon. They released the song “Look at My Dab” from their mixtape Back to the Bando. Interestingly, they still made music even though Offset was in prison during this time. In the music video of the song “Look at My Dab,” Migos did some simple dance move called “dabbing.” The dance gesture was also popularized by other famous people such as Cam Newton and Odell Beckham Jr. The signature dance move is a fad among the youth usually associated with victory or playfulness – thus becoming an internet meme. This certainly helped Migos net worth, popularity, and recognition.

It was on October 2016 when Migos launched “Bad and Boujee,” the first single from their album Culture. The song reached top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. “Bad and Boujee” is Migos’ first song to rank number one on the charts. The group also had the opportunity to appear on Katy Perry’s song “Bon Apetit.”
Migos did not stop there and they released “Too Hotty.” The song was included in the album Quality Control: Control the Streets Vol. 1. They also launched the lead single “MotorSport” featuring Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. After that, they worked with Pharell Williams to produce and release “Stir Fry.” The single was successful and was used as the song for the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend.
Not long after in 2018, Culture II was launched and it contains 24 tracks. It featured musicians such as Dun Deal, Murda Beatz, Metro Boomin, Travis Scott, Zaytoven, and plenty other talents.
The rapper group is currently working on their upcoming album called Culture III. But due to the pandemic, they decided to hold of releasing the album. Instead, they announced they will be working on a mixtape called Quarantine Mix-tape while waiting for the opportunity to work on Culture III.
Migos net worth is estimated at $80 million.
