As we patiently await the sequel to Migos’ wildly successful Y.R.N. mixtape, #MigosMondays continue with “Ounces,” the fifth song released in the weekly series. Listen to the track, co-produced by frequent Gucci Mane collaborators Zaytoven and Metro Boomin, above.
Though it still contains plenty of allusions to cars and riches, “Ounces” is the first track we’ve heard from Y.R.N. 2 whose chorus doesn’t explicitly reference the trio’s newfound wealth. Instead, Migos give us a little bit of their personal history, hearkening back to the days when they sold large quantities of weed to finance their penchant for buying Versace boxer briefs. Ok, they don’t actually say that verbatim, but hilariously enough, they do name-drop two types of Australian wildlife. Now that Y.R.N. 2 is expected to drop early next year, “The streets is a jungle, better watch out for koalas” is the current front-runner for 2014’s Best Hook of the Year.
