Quavo has dropped a trailer for his highly anticipated second studio album, "Rocket Power." The visual is a prelude to the former Migos member’s album, which promises to reveal what really happened between the trio, both before and after the death of Takeoff.
“Rocket Power” Will Expose The Pain & Anger of Takeoff’s Death
As fans eagerly await the release of “Rocket Power” on August 4, 2023, Quavo has dropped a teaser that gives a glimpse into why and how the famed Atlanta rap trio broke up. Quavo personally revealed on Instagram what to anticipate from the album, promising to lay all of his emotions before fans.
He stated in the post, “This Album Is Embodying All My Emotions. …Through the process of healing I’ve learned to turn tragedy into triumph….I had to dig deep into my purpose and find the power to keep striving….To my fans, thanks for being patient with me and supporting Us. To my FAMILY, even when times get hard we know our MAIN mission is to keep the Rocket name ALIVE TIL INFINITY #RocketPower 8/4/23.”
“My Cousin Jumped Out the Car”
The trailer features a rocket ship, symbolizing the late Takeoff and serving as a tribute to the rapper who passed away on November 1, 2022. The visual includes lyrics that seem to address how the group abruptly split, shocking fans who were blindsided. According to Quavo, his cousin Offset abandoned the group at the peak of their fame.
Quavo raps, “Living like a rockstar, but we miss one/ My cousin jumped out the car I had to keep goin’/ Now he tellin’ the whole world that we ain’t blood/ N***a it’s all love, yeah it’s all love/ I guess we gotta be together in this small world/ N***a it’s all love, yeah it’s all love/ Rocket Power imma up this shit, let’s keep it goin’.”
In May of 2022, Offset unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff from all social media platforms. Simultaneously, Quavo and Takeoff announced their new group “Unc & Phew.” The two took to Instagram to announce their new single-dropping called “The Hotel Lobby” which will not include the third member of their trio, Offset.
Offset & Quavo Attempt Reconciliation
Despite the split, the remaining Migos have made an effort to show a united front since Takeoff’s death. Quavo & Offset came together to commemorate Takeoff’s birthday. The pair wore matching T-shirts featuring the late rapper’s face and were surrounded by loved ones at a park.
During the BET Awards, Quavo and Offset set aside their differences to honor Takeoff with a performance featured hits “Hotel Lobby” and “Bad & Boujee,” and paid tribute to the late rapper with visuals of his picture and a rocket.
