Quavo Clarifies ‘Xanax’ Tweet That Left Fans Concerned: ‘I’m Okay’
The tweet arrived not long after Quavo released his latest solo album Rocket Power, which pays extensive tribute to Takeoff, his nephew and frequent collaborator who was fatally shot in late 2022 at age 28. The project features appearances from Takeoff himself and frequently references the tragedy as well as the legacy he left behind as one-third of Migos.
“This album is for the Rocket, our true fans, and also, this is my therapy,” he wrote in a post announcing the album. “This album is a true reflection of how I feel right now. Sometimes I’m good, sometimes I’m down, sometimes I’m disappointed, sometimes I fall apart, but then I always find my strength again. I know everything might not be alright right now, but the Rocket showed me a way to make it right! Rocket Power keeps me going. Rocket Power gives me fuel. Rocket Power will help us all overcome whatever we’re going through.”
In July, Quavo said he’s being “fueled by” the death of Takeoff. “All the pain, all the hard times, all the times I cried and all the times I just made music to pull up and try to play songs and he’s not there,” he told Jamie Crawford-Walker. “I’m just trying to get this fuel from above and this fuel from the sky and call it ‘rocket power.'”
