Quavo Remembers Takeoff on ‘Greatness’, Confirms that the ‘Migos’ Era is Over

Atlanta’s rap superstar and former Migos bossman Quavo has released his second single honouring his nephew Takeoff’s legacy. Titled ‘Greatness’, the latest single is Quavo’s second such effort after Takeoff succumbed to gun wounds in November last year.

Earlier this year, Quavo – real name Quavious Keyate Marshall – dropped ‘Without You’. Produced by the legendary rap record producer Mike Dean, the record captured the ATL trendsetter reminiscing about the times when his nephew Takeoff was around.

Quavo released the exclusive ‘Greatness’ artwork just ahead of the single’s release. Check it out here if you haven’t yet.

Besides remembering Takeoff and rapping about his influence on rap music, Migos further confirmed that the iconic Hip-Hop act ‘Migos’ is over as we know it. Notably, the late rapper made his breakthrough, along with his iconic rap-trio Migos, in June 2013 with the release of ‘Versace’.

The influential one-third of the group alongside Quavo and Offset, Take-off started Migos with ‘Juug Season’ in 2011. The group had been releasing exceptional records filled with massive hip-hop bangers ever since such as the Culture trilogy, Y.R.N. 1, Y.R.N. 2 and No Label 1.

Came in, swept the game like a storm with the m*********** flow, n****, Take’ did that (On God)
So don’t ask about the group, he gone, we gone, young n****, it can’t come back (Damn)
I’ma make sure mama straight (Mama)
Especially mama Take’
, Quavo raps on the DJ Durel-produced record.

Throughout his career, Takeoff refrained from usual public appearances and remained elusive. The young emcee let his bars and lyricism do the talking. In October, Quavo and Take-off released their debut Wu-Tang Clan-inspired ‘Only Built for Infinity Links’ LP without Offset.

On November 1st 2022, Take-off – real name Kirshnik Khari Ball – was shot dead in Houston earlier after a scuffle ensued between him, Quavo and another group during a dice game. ATL’s very-own Takeoff was Migos’ youngest member. The incident occurred within hours after Quavo & Takeoff released the visuals for ‘Messy’.

Migos went on a brief hiatus amidst back-and-forth reports of feuds and altercations within the group which were never addressed unambiguously in public by the three emcees.

Hip-Hop continues to mourn its pioneer’s death even today. Take-off leaves behind an unmatched legacy, a phenomenal discography and a sincere concern over America’s gun laws and violence.
