Quavo recently released “Honey Bun,” dedicating the song to Takeoff, his nephew and Migos bandmate, who was shot and killed on November 1, 2022 at a bowling alley in Houston.
The accompanying video features Quavo rapping from inside a vault filled with money and paperwork.
“How can I come outside without no mask on?/They want to see my emotions,” raps the artist while wearing a black mask covering half his face. “I ain’t smiling at all/I bought a bulletproof Humvee it can take down a wall,” he raps.
Quavo announced the single via social media on March 27, with a black-and-white photo of himself posing in front of a jeep. He captioned the post “Honey Bun” with the hashtag “#ForTake.”
On Thursday (March 30), he shared a video with a dramatic backdrop of the two rappers smoking a blunt onstage. “Rocket Power,” he wrote in the caption, referring to the musician’s stage name.
Quavo had paid tribute to Takeoff twice earlier. In late February, he released the single “Greatness.” “I couldn’t do it without the greatest group in the world,” he sang while holding up a chain of all three Migos members. “I can’t do it without the greatest nephew in the world, greatness.”
In January, the rapper released “Without You,” which sees him remember the low and high points of their career together: “Remember them days we ain’t have our shit together?/On the Nawfside times was hard but them days was better.”
