Migos took the Best Group Award at the 2017 BET Awards. The Lawrenceville, Ga. trio of rappers known by their stage names Quavo, Offset and Takeoff are all related, grew up together and first started making music in 2009 under the name Polo Club, with the name Migos becoming official in 2010. In 2015, the group’s hit song “Look at My Dab” secured a Hot 100 entry and kicked off the dabbing trend — a viral dance phenomenon. They scored their first ever number one recording this year with “Bad and Boujee,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert. They also scored a number one album, “Culture,” which went platinum in April.
Cheat Codes is the Los Angeles-based trio of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevin Ford. The three friends decided to start making music in 2014 and their first independent single, 2015’s “Adventure,” was number one on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 and earned over 5 million-plus plays in a year. Their next smash “Sex” with Kriss Kross Amsterdam, vaulted to number 10 on Spotify’s Global Charts and went Top 20 in 20 countries — racking up 100 million-plus streams and 10-million YouTube views and counting.
Parents of young children should be advised that the concert will feature mature content.
