Speaking on the Kevin Durant-co-hosted podcast The ETCs, the rapper explained that the trio had to delay a lot of things due to COVID-19, and that they’re just waiting to ring in the new year as they have big plans that revolve around Culture III. “Right now, we just waiting on Culture III. We done with the album. We just waiting on 2021, man, so everything can crank up. We don’t wanna drop it right now,” he said.
Quavo continued, “We want the commotion, we want to move, we want to be outside. We want to drop it and go on tour. We want to have an album listening and have people in the thang and really hearing the album. I can’t drop no album and let the internet judge my album. It just don’t make sense. I just want to be with the people. I want to touch the people and that’s what we gon’ do at the top of the year.”
Culture III has experienced a number of delays already; the project was first expected to drop in 2019 after Quavo revealed the info in an October 2018 interview, but a March 2019 Twitter Q&A with Offset confirmed that the album was instead dropping in 2020.
Culture III was supposed to drop this year but @Migos pushed it back when the pandemic began.
Now, it’s on the way “at the top of the year” according to @QuavoStuntin “We want the commotion… we want to be outside.”
