This beat couldn't be more of a Migos flute type beat if it tried to be. Flute trap instrumentals were popularized by artists like the Migos, Murder Beats, Future and Lil Baby. This is one of my latest trap beats in a similar style to that of a Migos type beat called Sandman. The beat is pretty minimalist so that rap artists can shine on the beat. The flute hook is pretty catchy!
The flute melody in this beat drives the instrumental to the verse and back to the hook, while the 808 trap drums provide the mood and the rhythm for the artist to rap over.
The 808 trap drums and the high hats have the unique skip that provides the artist with a creative flavour to change up their raps just like The Migos do.
One of the cool effects I put in the beat is the addition of the female ad libs along with the snare slow down and roll. All of these sounds are typical trap elements that create's a playful aspect for the artist to rap his or her lyrics over the instrumental.

The trap flute type beat sound is familiar with Atlanta trap producers.
Atlanta is a hotspot for hip-hop, and that's nothing new, but there's a wave of fresh talent coming out of the ATL right now that's defined by production just as much as the rapping. Breakout stars often get all the credit, but coming up with artists like Young Thug, Migos, Future, Rich Homie Quan, Rome Fortune, and PeeWee Longway is a crop of prolific producers who play a big role in Atlanta's evolving sound. Here are 11 producers in Atlanta who are killing it right now. Source Complex
People like London on da Track, Mike Will Made-It and Metro Boomin all have produced for rappers like Future, Waka Flocka Flame, Young Thug, Young Dolph, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, ScHoolboy Q, Future, Kanye West, Rihanna, Jay Z, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz.
Although the music scene of Atlanta is rich and varied, the city's production of hip-hop music has been especially noteworthy, acclaimed, and commercially successful. In 2009, The New York Times called Atlanta "hip-hop's centre of gravity", and the city is home to much famous hip-hop, R&B and neo-soul musicians. Source Wikipedia
The trap beat is a modern subgenre of hip hop which today is popularised by the use of Digital Audio Work Station like Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Fl Studio. It originated in the Southern United States during the early 2000s.
The producers that I mentioned above utilizes very few instruments and focuses almost exclusively on snare drums and double- or triple-timed hi-hats. The addition of the flute sound in trap music has been in use since artists like The Migos and Future became mainstream in the late 2000's and early 2010's.
Trap music uses synthesized drums and is characterized by complex hi-hat patterns, tuned kick drums with a long decay (originally from the Roland TR-808 drum machine), and lyrical content that often focuses on drug use and urban violence.
A worthy read is an article I found on Classic Fm' Blog about 9 times the flute has been use right in trap music. I love incorporating the flute into my beats. Trap music and trap instrumentals have removed a number of "Busy" sounds from Classic hip hop music and the fact that we can incorporate the flute in to hip hop music and still call it rap is class.
