Quavo is a member of the controversial trap trio Migos, formed in 2009, which consists of him and his two relatives, Takeoff and Offset. Quavo's mother raised all three of them together in the suburbs of Atlanta.
Before he turned to his rapping career, Quavo was a prominent football player when he was in high school. During his senior year, he was the first quarterback in the county, with more passing yards and completions than any other player! However, Quavo dropped out of school, because he didn't want to follow any rules, and he knew he was going to be somebody, according to him.
The neighborhood where Migos came from was held by Mexican drug cartel, and Quavo admits:
"We got into some legal sh**, but the charges got dropped or whatever," Quavo says. "We realized we had to calm down and get money the right way."
The three of them started saving money, and after two years, they saved enough to upgrade their studio in the basement of Quavo's mother home. Soon after that, they released 2013's mixtape Y.R.N. (Young Rich Niggas).
Migos released their most popular song Versace in 2013, and they came into the spotlight very quickly. More than 30 million people viewed it on Youtube, and Justin Bieber even published a video of himself rapping their song.
It was remixed by Adrien Broner, Johnny Polygon, Kap G, Tyga and Swagg Man.
The song was named as one of top five hip-hop songs of 2013 by XXL Magazine.
"We went to Guitar Center and bought all the s**t we needed," Quavo admits. "Then we dropped 'Versace.' I made a million dollars out of $4000."

We can only tell you that he has a "Huncho" tattoo on his left hand and "Huncho" is his nickname.
Take a look at some of his other tattoos on the photos below:
Ain't nothing was handed to me. I grind for everything that I got. I worked for everything I got and I want to show the people that it can be done.
Smile through the pain, never let them see you down.
I'd open doors for anyone who opens doors for me.
When you do it yourself you feel better.
I couldn't follow nobody's rules.
It seems other rap artists are trying to follow a "tradition" or something... I don't consider us (Migos) weirdos, we just went the other way and didn't follow the rap tradition. We just killed it and made it our tradition.
We just feel like history repeats itself. You ain’t never going to see nothing brand new; you’re only going to see when records are broken. And we’re here to just set records and set trends and follow the footsteps that have been shown to us.
If you want the Migos to come to your venue, you need to have security there because of the type of music we’re rappin’. We get fans excited.
Our first album didn’t work because we tried to be something we’re not.
Our music attracts the people that we rap about and make music about, and they come out and actually do it.
People want to know where I’m going, and I just don’t ever know.
Street politics is what happens in our everyday life, living in the bando. It's the environment arounds us and what we doing in the streets. We (Migos) talking about how many snakes there are in the grass and talking about how people can hurt you, and talking about how that can help you gain knowledge.
Wealth is just consistency... I don't want to be rich. I want to be wealthy.
I just try to be humble as possible. You might see me in Mcdonald's or something and be like, “wow, he in Mcdonald’s.” We all came from the same spot, you know what I'm saying?
The greatest MCs came out of groups; the greatest singers came out of groups. So you can't tell us we're not MCs.
Can't even see without my vintage Versace frames. I don't go nowhere without them on. I can't even live without them. Every time I throw them on, I see all the haters, and I see where the money at.

This is what Takeoff and Quavo say about the meaning of the name Migos:
We always ran together on the North side, as Migos, as boys.
But they also admitted that their name also reffers to the Spanish word "amigos" which means "friends".
