What’s your vision for the future? It probably involves hover car Lyfts, double cups of lean, and a cyborg Nicki Minaj. Don’t forget the fast cars. At least, that’s how Migos is seeing the future. Migos’ just dropped the video for MotorSport, bringing you a fast and loose banger ahead of their upcoming album Culture 2. The track and video feature Nicki Minaj and Cardi B making bloody moves. This is a video for a neon future, and it’s an anthem for loving all things fast and sexy. We’ve broken down the track and video for you, verse by verse, highlighting the dedication these artists have for their rides.
Quavo’s got a taste for luxury vehicles, known for having a personal collection of Lamborghinis at home, and it’s no surprise that he co-directed the video and gave himself the opening verse of the track. The first minute finds him leaning up against a silver Lamborghini Diablo, bragging he ‘hit so many donuts in the backstreets.’
There’s a glitch in the screen, and we’re seeing a red Lamborghini Countach. MotorSport features the whole rainbow of six figure sports cars, with Offset coming in with a line about “Green Lamborghini a tortoise”– the turtle pace being a joke. A couple lines later, we’re switching lanes, talking about “488 hit the gears,” a reference to Ferrari 488.
Next we get Cardi B strutting in to join Offset, denouncing everyone who’s trying to start beef and spread gossip behind her back, saying Why would I hop in some beef / When I could just hop in my Porsche. Same, Cardi B.
Nicki steps in in front of a white Lambo, and we’re not sure who’s got a more powerful engine, the car or the MC. She’s dressed in a latex-and-steel catsuit from the future, but she’s does a throwback with her references, Pull up in the space coupe, I done linked with Marty (she’s talking Marty McFly’s Back to the Future Delorean). And obviously she throws in a line about a pink Bugatti, because she deserves it.
Takeoff’s car avatar is a red Ferrari Testarossa. He doesn’t talk driving in his verse, but throws in some risqué come-ons in Nicki’s direction.
We’ve only got love for the product placement in this video, because it’s the future we want to see. The video opens and closes out with a glimpse of flying Lyfts streaking through the city’s skyline. Watch Migos’ new video MotorSport, in full, below.
