Quavo is still reeling from the loss of Takeoff who was killed during a dice game in Houston. The Atlanta rapper on Wednesday (February 22) elevated his late nephew to GOAT status with his new single “Greatness.”
“Countdown to Greatness,” Quavo captioned an Instagram post unveiling the song’s cover art. “ForTake🚀.”
In the song, Quavo reflects on the loss of Takeoff and says he would give away everything he currently owns if it would bring him back; “My chain, my watch, my wrist
My motherfuckin’ house, my rise and grind. I’d give away all this shit just to see my dawg just one more time.”
As we previously reported, Takeoff was fatally shot outside a Houston Bowling Alley nearly four months ago. His life was eventually honored with a special “In Memoriam” segment at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards. Quavo reportedly clashed with Offset backstage and prevented him from being a part of the tribute for the late Migos member.
Following the altercation, fans speculated Migos was done, but Offset denied the rumors; “What tf look like fighting my brother yal n-ggas is crazy,” he wrote on Twitter earlier this month.
However, in Greatness, Quavo seemingly confirmed the end of the group, noting there’s no Migos without Take’, “Don’t ask about the group, he gone, we gone.” He later added, “I can’t kick it with a fake/And I won’t sleep with the snakes/I’d rather eat with the greats/I wanted peace but I can’t.”
Greatness is Quavo’s second tribute track to Takeoff. Last month Quavo honored his Migos band mate and Unc & Phew collaborator with an emotional track titled “Without You.”
