The early years

Rise to fame
Quavo has had musical success beyond his work with Migos. He has been featured on four singles that appeared within the top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Migos caught the attention of fans and industry insiders after the 2013 release of their single “Versace.”

In October 2018, Quavo’s debut solo studio album, Quavo Huncho, was released. Rolling Stone described the album as a “charming and scattered affair.” In an interview with GQ, Quavo said he is still working on his unique sound. “I’ll learn from my fans when I drop my album,” he told GQ. I’ma just work hard, being the hardest-working person on everything, leader, the Huncho, so that’s what you already know what you got coming. I need answers from my fans now. I can’t answer everything.”
The artist has won several awards and nominations. He received a 2017 Teen Choice Award for “Know No Better,” and a 2017 American Music Award for “I’m the One.”
