Off of Culture, the latest album from the current hip-hop sensation Migos, Kelly Price is a moody look into the lifestyle of drugged-out characters. Following up the success of Bad & Boujee, Migos’ style is now submerged into mainstream hip-hop; Kelly Price highly appeals to fans of trap production, but riddled clichés this song fails to maintain interest for those wanting more imagery in the lyrics.
Kelly Price is lengthy and becomes redundant with roughly two minutes left on the track. The strength of this song comes from Quavo and Travis Scott; Quavo delivers a mesmerizing chorus while Scott provides a punchy verse. Scott takes charge of Kelly Price, confirming that his talent shines through in familiar-sounding company.
Heavily produced instrumentals creates a setting of a hype drugged out night ahead, but these lavish parties are only told through bland imagery and minimal individuality and Kelly Price is unable to separate itself from other mainstream hip-hop.
Travis Scott offers personality to Kelly Price, but one verse cannot salvage this redundant song. Although catchy, Quavo’s chorus becomes a bore following Scott’s verse, and from there, Kelly Price declines even more with Takeoff’s lines and the offsetting outro. The ending is a bizarre twist on Kelly Price. The sentimental emotion sounds sincere like the rest of the track, but remains a missed opportunity to place more content into Kelly Price.
Kelly Price loses any attachment past a catchy hook and refined production. The popularity for numbing narcotic-induced songs benefits Migos for their certainty to create the latest track for those awaiting on their next night wrecked off of their favorite substance.
