Migos has placed a Christmas gift under the tree for fans, courtesy of a unique reading of the yuletide classic “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”.
Shared on the Instagram of Spotify’s Rap Caviar, Migos’ version takes the iconic Christmas poem in some weird and wonderful new directions.
While the reading starts off relatively traditionally — or as traditionally as Migos can be — things quickly veers off as children experience “visions of sugarplums” dancing “in they dreads”.
Meanwhile, some of the archaic language in the poem — written in 1823 — proves to be a bit baffling.
“What the hell is this word?” says one of the Migos members when confronted with the word “kerchief.”
The final assessment: “Might be a couple bars in there, you know what I’m saying?”
This isn’t the first time that the members of Migos have put their unique spin on reading. Last year, during an appearance on a radio show, the group read the children’s book Llama Llama Red Pajama over the beat of “Bad and Boujee”. Watch:
