It’s 2018 and not many people are winning like the Migos.

Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have been seriously killing the game (experiencing huge success for those who don’t know the vernacular) and, while keeping the agenda setting theory in mind, this blog attempts to provide three easy tips for politicians to capitalize on.
1 . Walk It How You Talk It
Politicians have to remember that the public is not interested in being lead by hypocrites. So, it’s best for the candidate or appointee to be personally aligned with their message because if the media ever catches them slipping, they will be dragged (“insulted publicly on social media” for those who don’t know the vernacular) – and a good dragging has been known to disrupt careers.
twitter culture is waking up to everyone dragging a celebrity and from that trying to understand what they’ve done

2. Create More Of The Same Content
Some might say that all Migos songs sound the same. I say, “agreed, but what’s wrong with that?” Having a consistent message and a cohesive brand is the wave. (The “thing to do” for those who don’t know the vernacular) There’s nothing worse than a politician who panders to an audience for more votes. In other words, DO NOT do what Hillary did.

3. Flood The Market
Migos just released 24 tracks on Culture II- almost double the amount content of the average album. Consumers decide what’s important based on trending topics in the media. So, politicians have to create enough newsworthy moments and/or provide enough drama for influencers and gatekeepers to cover their story.
Other things are important for politicians including cultivating a strong team in which all members have individually clout. All three Migos are able to work on solo projects without harming the group. And so far, the trio has successfully convinced the industry that anything they touch is a guaranteed bop. (A “hit” for those who don’t know the vernacular)
