Gearing up for another era, buzzing Memphis phenomenon Lil Migo returns with a brand new single and music video entitled “Detox” out now via Heavy Camp | 4th & Broadway | Def Jam Recordings. It notably marks his first release of 2023.
The track layers a haunting synth melody over a hypnotic beat as Lil Migo unleashes a flurry of fiery verses. He laces honest bars with raw emotion in a moment of reflection, “So many wounds and these scars, hoping I heal.” The accompanying visual reimagines childhood moments in black-and-white as he hustles in school, earns straight A’s, and gifts his mom flowers. In a voiceover, he narrates, “Shit even then, I knew I had to be a millionaire…I didn’t know music was gonna be my way out.” It cuts to present-day as he raps on the red carpet in front of a mansion. Ultimately, the clip tells a full circle story, ending with Lil Migo on top.
Last year, Lil Migo turned up on King Of The Trap 2 (Deluxe). Among many standouts, it boasted the fan favorite “Migo Shit” [feat. Quavo], which generated 2.4 million Spotify streams and 1.3 million YouTube views on the music video. Earning critical acclaim, XXL plugged it, and Hot 97 touted him on the “Who’s Next Playlist” and christened him “the rawest new voice of Memphis hip-hop.” It’s just the beginning though.
