Quavo on Grief After Takeoff’s Death: ‘Sometimes I Cry Myself to Sleep’

Quavo says he’s being “fueled by” his late nephew and Migos bandmate Takeoff, who was tragically shot and killed in November of last year.

In a new interview with Jamie Crawford-Walker shared to YouTube, Quavo elaborated on the personal importance of the title of his new project, Rocket Power, and his ongoing experiences with grief.

“It means everything to me,” Quavo said when asked to detail what the idea of “rocket power” meant to him. “Just being fueled by my brother, Take, and bottling in all these emotions—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. I’m just trying to get this fuel from above and this fuel from the sky and call it ‘rocket power.'”
