Multi-award-winning American rapper and record producer Quavo has released his much-anticipated album, Rocket Power, and in it, his late nephew and colleague Takeoff has been featured.

Quavo surprised fans with the news during an online listening party held at the Hayden Planetarium in New York, where he previewed the album for some lucky fans, as well as spoke openly about his pain.

While speaking to those in attendance the former Migos band member told the crowd he's been floating through life since Takeoff's death comparing it to an out-of-body experience.

Huncho took to his Instagram Live to play some new tunes for his fans, and in turn, dedicated his Rocket Power project to his late nephew

“It’s Quavo and we’re live and I’m in the studio right now working on my album Rocket Power, I’m gonna play something for you right now," the rapper candidly said.

He went on to and thank all his fans for still rocking with him.

After the live stream ended, he posted a candid photo of TakeOff, and wrote, “King,” along with a rocket emoji, which had served as the signature emoji to promote TakeOff’s 2018 solo effort The Last Rocket.

Takeoff died in November, just as he and Quavo were revving up the promotion for their joint album. Luckily, he left behind some material Quavo was able to use for this solo project.

Even though their never got to debut their uncle-nephew and drop an album, Quavo has ensured Takeoff's legacy lives on. Although no longer in this realm, from the material left behind, Takeoff actually helps kick off the album with the song "Patty Cake."


The album which was officially released on Friday, also features award winning globally celebrated rappers Future and Young Thug. The new solo project is Quavo’s first since dropping off his debut Quavo Huncho in 2018, which debuted at No. 66 on the Billboard 200 

Takeoff was gunned down at Billiard and Bowling in Houston where he and fellow Migos member, Quavo, were partying with about 30 other people.

Surveillance video shows some of the attendees getting into an altercation, which quickly escalated into violence. Shortly after, Patrick allegedly pulled a gun and took several shots.

Following the attack, the 28-year-old rapper, who according to the police reports was an innocent bystander in the dice game was fatally struck in the head and torso dying on the spot.

Two other people were also shot, but their injuries were not life-threatening.
