If you tuned in for the 2017 Golden Globes, you probably caught Donald Glover give a shout out to Migos while accepting the award on behalf of FX’s Atlanta for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy.
“I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like that’s the best song ever,” he said of the group that appeared on an episode of the hit FX series.
After Glover’s reference, however, people were wildly perplexed, leaving the rapper to later explain just who exactly the hip-hop duo is.
When asked by a reporter backstage, who, by the way, mispronounced Migos’ name, why he shouted them out, the actor said, “because I think they’re the Beatles of this generation and they don’t get a lot of respect.”
“Not that they don’t get a lot of respect, but there’s a generation, sort of like the YouTube generation I came up with, there’s a generation of kids growing up on something that’s completely separate than a whole group of people.”
He added about the track “Bad and Boujee,” “Honestly that song is just fly, there’s no better song to have sex to.”
Thanks for the tip, Donald.

And of course, Migos got a kick out of it. The group thanked the Childish Gambino, the actor’s rap name on Twitter.
