The Atlanta icon took to Instagram to seemingly announce a new track called "Honey Bun," and suggested it was for his late nephew.

Quavo just took to Instagram to tease a new song, and took some time to honor his fallen nephew Takeoff in the process. Moreover, he posted a black-and-white picture of what seems to be a music video shoot, as you can see a rig and some cameras in the right corner of the snapshot. However, it could also be the single cover art. Regardless, the Atlanta rapper looks somber in a fuzzy coat while smoking in front of a truck. Furthermore, he captioned the post with presumably the song's title. "Honey Bun Friday! #ForTake," he wrote.

This announcement follows the Migos member's previous single "Greatness," on which he addressed the iconic rap group's future. Without Take, he says in the song, the group is no more and isn't coming back. However, he didn't explicitly mention remaining member Offset in the track, so we don't know for sure if their rocky relationship also primarily motivated him to bring the trio to an end. Still, many fans caught potential disses via subliminal lines on the song, and the context is hard to ignore.

Quavo's Dropping A New Song Soon, Honors Takeoff In Post

Despite the falling out that Quavo and Offset experienced some months before their partner's loss, it's not something that he brought publicly into the fold. Moreover, a lot of their falling out and the details of their feud were mostly speculated online given some indirect comments and their public movement. As such, Huncho's always put that to the side as has Offset, who hasn't given a lot of public statements directly addressing his cousin. Furthermore, Quavo instead focused on honoring Takeoff's untimely passing through statements, personal grieving, and probably uniting with his family.

Meanwhile, the most significant public tribute that Unc gave Phew was his track "Without You," which is completely dedicated to the Rocket's memory. Not only that, but he also performed the track at this year's Grammys ceremony, which made for a heartfelt, powerful, heartbreaking, but also cathartic moment. He still watches over the rap game, and it's that love, determination, and connection that will continue to support the Migo on his artistic journey. Hopefully one day him and Offset can reconcile in the public eye, or at least find personal closure in healing from this tragedy. Let us know if you're looking forward to more music from the "Bars Into Captions" MC and return to HNHH for the latest on Quavo.
