Quavo Dedicates New Album ‘rocket Power’ to ‘king’ Takeoff

Quavo has dedicated his forthcoming solo album Rocket Power to his ‘Unc & Phew’ collaborator TakeOff, whom he called a “king.”

Huncho took to his Instagram Live on Thursday (May 11) to play some new tunes for his fans, and in turn dedicated his Rocket Power project to his late nephew, who was shot and killed in Houston, Texas last November.



“It’s Quavo and we’re live and I’m in the studio right now working on my album Rocket Power,” Quavo said while donning an Atlanta Falcons jersey. “I’m gonna play something for you right now.”

He was then interrupted by the NFL’s season schedule dropping and told his fans he’d be right back.

After the live stream ended, he posted a candid photo of TakeOff, and wrote, “King,” along with a rocket emoji, which had served as the signature emoji to promote TakeOff’s 2018 solo effort The Last Rocket.

The update comes after Huncho previously dropped off the singles “Honey Bun and “Greatness,” and promised he’d pour his heart into this new project. “#RocketPower All My Emotions In This Album No Interviews,” Quavo wrote on Twitter.

On “Greatness,” Quavo also took a minute to answer several burning questions fans had regarding the dissolution of Migos, and explained that while he treasured the time he spent with Offset and Takeoff, the Atlanta trio was done and never coming back.

“Never forget that the Migos amazin’/ Look at the ice and the knots in my pants, you know that them young n-ggas made it,” he raps over upbeat, horn-laced production from DJ Durel.

The track continues: “Came in, swept the game like a storm with the muthafuckin’ flow, n-gga, Take did that/ So don’t ask about the group, he gone, we gone, young n-gga it can’t come back, damn!”

TakeOff was shot and killed outside of a Houston bowling alley on November 1, 2022. According to police, the 28-year-old rapper was an innocent bystander in a dice game involving Quavo and other men, which escalated into an argument and, tragically, a shootout.

“Greatness” was Quavo’s second drop since TakeOff’s passing, and came on the heels of “Without You,” which he released in January. The 31-year-old performed the song alongside the Maverick City Music choir at the 2023 Grammys Awards in February, which saw him hold Take’s chain as a photo of his late nephew consumed the onstage screen behind him.

The new solo project is Quavo’s first since dropping off his debut Quavo Huncho in 2018, which debuted at No. 66 on the Billboard 200 and features appearances from 21 Savage, Drake, Saweetie and others.
