He was so passionate about music that in order to pursue a career in music, Quavo dropped out from his senior year in high school.
He then began recording songs with ‘Takeoff’ and ‘Offset’ locally. They used to take their songs to various clubs and play. There, they would offer to pay the DJ’s drink if the DJ played one of their songs in the club.
Migos is a family affair. They are two cousins, Quavo, 26, and Offset 25, and Quavo’s nephew Takeoff, who at 22 is just four years younger than his uncle.
Purveyors of trap music, the bass-heavy Southern variant of hip hop, Migos are renowned for their distinctive offbeat “triplet” rhyming style — rapping to a frequency of just three beats in a standard 4/4 time signature — copied by Kanye West and Drake, among many others.
