“I’d like to thank the Migos — not for being on the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee,” said Glover while holding his award on stage.
Glover later stated backstage that he believes Migos is akin to the the Beatles of this generation. “I think that they’re the Beatles of this generation and they don’t get a lot of respect, I think, outside of Atlanta,” Glover stated. He also said that: “Honestly, that song is just fly. There’s no better song to have sex to.”
“Bad and Boujee” features Lil Uzi Vert and applauds a certain kind of woman over a snappy trap beat. The song is not usually something that would be given a mention at something like the Golden Globes, which have often been criticized for its exclusivity and pomp. The hook below demonstrates the conflicted cultures and lifestyle of Migos with those traditionally attributed to the Golden Globes:
My bitch is bad and boujee (bad)/Cookin’ up dope with an Uzi (blaow)/My niggas is savage, ruthless (savage)/We got 30’s and 100 rounds too (grrah)
