Migos have tapped into a cult classic film from the ’90s for their latest music video. The trio calls back to The Wayans Brothers’ Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood in the new visuals for their single “Need It” featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
The video sees Offset in the role of Loc Dog, who was portrayed by Marlon Wayans in the movie. The Migos member delivers a near-perfect reenactment of one of the film’s most memorable scenes, which shows Loc Dog unveiling a missile in the back of his mail truck.
“Need It” is expected to appear on Quavo, Offset and Takeoff’s next album, but the group hasn’t revealed a title or release date for the project. They have confirmed it won’t be Culture III as they intend to use that name for a different release.
Migos’ video is a lighthearted affair, but Takeoff is currently dealing with some serious accusations after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a party in Los Angeles. His lawyer Drew Findling has categorically denied the allegations.
“What has become abundantly clear is that the allegations made against Takeoff are patently and provably false,” Findling said. “The claims and statements made regarding this lawsuit indicate that the plaintiffs’ representatives have not spoken with relevant witnesses or reviewed available evidence.”
The alleged victim is suing for sexual battery, assault and emotional distress. The Los Angeles Police Department also opened an investigation into the matter.
