DO IT FOR THE CULTURE
‘Do it for the culture’, a statement made by the group Migos back in 2017, ultimately referring to doing something to help build a collective, rich and diverse culture rather than just being in it for the money.

Whether you’re a car manufacturer, a clothing company, a record label or an artist, the expectation is that you are capable of adding value to the community you’re serving.
