It's already been half a year since the world said a tragic and untimely goodbye to Migos lyricist Takeoff. The entire hip-hop community was broken up over the young lyricist's death. Still, no one is taking it harder than his uncle and partner in rhyme, Quavo. At the time of the fatal shooting that took Take away, he and his Migos collaborator had just shared their joint Only Built for Infinity Links album which included the uber-successful "HOTEL LOBBY" single. Despite their beef with Offset, the pair was in their prime when one half lost his life, leaving his lifelong pal to mourn.
Quavo has been keeping mostly lowkey in recent weeks, though earlier this month he did confirm that his next solo album, Rocket Power, will be a tribute to Takeoff. On Tuesday (May 23), the Georgia-born artist returned to Instagram with an update on the release, which he says is "coming soon." In his caption, Q wrote, "This album is for the Rocket and our true fans. Also, this is my therapy."
Quavo Speaks on His Next Solo Project
His heartfelt message continued, "This is [an] album of true reflection of how I feel right now. Sometimes I'm good, sometimes I'm down, and sometimes I'm disappointed. Sometimes I fall apart but then I ALWAYS find my strength again." Quavo assured his followers that while he knows "everything might not be alright right now, the rocket showed [him] a way to make it RIGHT!" The 32-year-old concluded his message with, "Rocket Power keeps me going, rocket power gives me fuel. Rocket Power will help us all overcome whatever we're going through."
An official release date and tracklist for the project have yet to arrive, though fans are curious as to whether Q will be connecting with any other artists. Regardless of the time it takes for the former Migo to complete his "therapy," we can't wait to hear what he has in store. Are you looking forward to Quavo's Rocket Power project?
