Is this the end of Migos? Quavo seems to think so!
While the world mourns Takeoff‘s tragic demise, his uncle continues to honor his passing through music. Months after releasing the emotional track “Without You,” the rapper returns with another tribute.
Unlike the first song, which encompassed Quavo’s grief, the new track “Greatness” felt like a personal attack against Offset. The surviving Migos members have allegedly been on the outs since Takeoff’s death, leaving fans concerned about the group’s future.
Quavo Squashed Any Hope Of A Migos Comeback With New Tribute To Takeoff
It appears Takeoff was the glue holding the famous rap trio together as fans’ dreams of the group returning as a duo were recently destroyed. In a recent Instagram update, the Athens native shared a brief clip of the “Greatness” music video.
The verse the 31-year-old shared seemingly hinted at his alleged beef with his cousin Offset while addressing his promise to care for Takeoff’s mother. As the upbeat tempo played, the Hip-hop star rapped:
“I’ma make sure mama straight. Especially mama Take’. I can’t kick it with a fake, and I won’t sleep with the snakes. I’d rather eat with the greats. I wanted peace, but I can’t.”
Quavo noted that he was trying to move forward despite not having the answers to achieve this goal. However, the entertainer noted that going backward would be “dangerous.” Although he did not mention his cousin by name, the record producer’s words hinted at his desire to leave Migos in the past.
In the full-length music video shared on YouTube, the colorful visuals captured the group’s frontman in what appeared to be his home, holding on to what looked like Takeoff’s necklace. Quavo was seen watching throwback videos of Migos and looking at their photos. The clip then transitioned to footage of Quavo playing basketball with friends or attending events.
Throughout the video, the rapper showed off his expensive jewelry and exotic vehicles. However, the point was not to prove his wealth, as the grieving uncle noted he would give away all his material items to see Takeoff “one more time.”
According to the Athens native, fans should stop asking about Migos because the group ended with his nephew’s death. “Came in, swept the game like a storm with the motherf****** flow, nigga, Take’ did that,” the rapper said, “so don’t ask about the group, he gone, we gone, young nigga, it can’t come back.”
Despite his alleged problems with Offset, the partial owner of FCF Glacier Boyz was proud of his former group’s accomplishments. “Never forget that the Migos amazin’,” the entertainer said, noting that his wealth represented the trio’s success. He also credited the rap group in the song’s outro
“I couldn’t do it without the greatest group in the world,” he sang while holding up a chain with the members’ faces. “I can’t do it without the greatest nephew in the world,” he continued, once again stating Takeoff’s significant impact on his career.
Fans’ Reaction To ‘Greatness’ Pales In Comparison To Quavo’s In Memoriam Praises
Although “Greatness” was the second tribute to the deceased rapper, most fans were not impressed with the song, unlike “Without You.” Instead of sympathizing with Takeoff’s death, many were concerned about the lyrics directed at Offset and flooded the comment section with pleas for a reconciliation.
“You and Offset need to make up! I think Take would want that,” a fan pleaded. “Get back with Offset man, do it for Takeoff,” another implored the rapper. More fans begged the pair to settle, noting they were better as a group. However, not everyone expressed their wishes politely.
An individual advised Quavo to reconcile with his cousin because “Greatness” was “shit,” while another critic noted that the duo’s “solo projects” could not compare to “Migos vibes.” For the final slam dunk, a third troll dissed Quavo for looking “happy” despite his nephew’s killer escaping justice.
These responses significantly differed from the emotional messages fans dropped after the Athens rapper performed at the 2023 Grammys. The 31-year-old gave a sentimental rendition of “Without You” at the award ceremony alongside the Maverick City Music choir.
However, following the emotional performance, news broke that Offset and Quavo got into a heated altercation over the latter’s decision to exclude the “Clout” rapper from the In Memoriam tribute.
Sources claimed that minutes before the “Hotel Lobby” rapper got on stage to perform his song “Without You,” he allegedly engaged in a physical fight with Offset. The altercation was so intense that the duo had to be pulled apart by onlookers.
Cardi B’s husband, however, denied the speculations via a cryptic tweet that read, “What tf look like fighting my brother yal niggas is crazy.”
