As soon as upon a time, Ol’ Soiled Bastard grabbed an awards present mic to proclaim that Wu-Tang Clan is for the children. The rationale this occasion turned seared into popular culture’s reminiscence is due to the incongruity of the assertion. With rhymes stuffed with each indirect and direct references to medication, homicide, intercourse, and varied crimes, Wu-Tang’s music couldn’t be thought of “kid friendly” to any however probably the most beneficiant of fogeys and authority figures.
And but, right here we’re, 25 years later, with the announcement that Migos — who share loads of content material similarities with the Wu, if not stylistic ones — will carry out on the 2019 Nickelodeon Children Alternative Awards. Contemplating how a lot they rhyme about promoting medication and taking pictures individuals, it’s unclear which of their songs would have the ability to make it by way of the censors intact, however hey, tweens of the digital age are already uncovered to sufficient foul language and creepy memes by way of the web that possibly “Narcos” would appear tame by comparability.
In line with Billboard, the trio will probably be joined by DJ Mustard, which suggests they’ll be performing their collaboration with the 10 Summers chief, “Pure Water.” Any and all references of the “ten bad bitches” who’re after Quavo will presumably be scrubbed, however we’ll all need to tune in March 23 to see if Offset’s brick makes it by way of the foyer or if Takeoff nonetheless references Backwoods for a crowd of hyper 12-year-olds.
The Children Alternative Awards will even be hosted by DJ Khaled.
