Quavo ‘Quavo Huncho’ Album: 20 of the Best Lyrics
Migos has been omnipresent ever since crashing the mainstream hip-hop scene in 2013, claiming the title of hip-hop's greatest group of the past half decade in the process. While there's been a dearth of trios in hip-hop over the past two decades, Quavo, Offset and Takeoff have proved there's strength in numbers, with their last two group efforts, Culture and Culture II, both topping the Billboard 200 chart and reaching platinum status.
In addition to being beloved as a unit, the trio has succeeded in spinning off individual identities and solo careers outside of the group. This has led to speculation over the years that Migos would eventually branch off and release solo projects, a rumor that first heated up with Quavo's emergence as the group's most charismatic member, recognizable voice and de facto front-man. After testing the waters late last year with Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, his collaborative project with Travis Scott, Quavo dives head-first into life as a solo artist with his long-awaited debut, Quavo Huncho.
Running 19 tracks long, Quavo Huncho dials in a star-studded list of collaborators to partake in the festivities. Drake, Cardi B, Kid Cudi, Madonna, Lil Baby, 21 Savage and his Migos brethren all make appearances. Production on Quavo Huncho includes contributions from 30 Roc, Buddah Bless, CuBeatz, French Montana, Joseph DaVinci, Kid Cudi, Murda Beatz, OG Parker, Pharrell Williams, Tay Keith, Vance, Wheezy, WondaGurl and others, all of whom supply Quavo with an array of backdrops that showcase his range and versatility.
Now that Quavo's solo set has finally seen the light of day, XXL handpicks 20 of the best lyrics from Quavo Huncho.
"I was 22 when I first dropped/Most influential dude when I first dropped/The bando named a new spot/Where them boys from? They ain't from the Hot/Hotlanta (hot, hah), dirty mango Fanta/Swept the game like I'm Huncho MC Hammer/Write my name 'cross the hall of fame banner/Hit the lights, diamonds flash like a camera" —Quavo
"I should face tattoo a hundred tears/All these rappers wanna make disappear/In the spotlight lookin' like deers/'Specially when we pull up pressin'/'Specially when we pull up flexin'/'Specially when we pull up checkin'/150 cash on a necklace/Young nigga scrapin' them extras/Movin' 'em blocks, no Tetris/Wrap 'em a lot like Texas" —Quavo
"I can show you how to make a band like Diddy/Get up out yo' feelings 'fore this choppa make you dance like Shiggy/6ix God just like Drizzy/Shoot you in the back like Ricky/Seats peanut butter like Jiffy/Y'all niggas rats like Mickey/Thick women only, I'm picky/Yellow diamonds on me, they pissy/Elliot the one did all my ice, but I'm not talkin' bout Missy" —21 Savage
"Only God I fear/It's 10 bricks in the Lear/Draco came with a mirror/To watch my back/Heard he got whacked/The bando back/Cookin' from scratch/Heard you the man now/You do the dirt with your hands, huh?/Get it for a lil' bit of change, feel like you pickin' up cans now" —Quavo

"Just remember everything she do high-end/She can pull lotta strings like a violin/Get the front end break off the back end/Then we go again, think I seen her twin/Diamond, let her shine yeah/Let her drive the Lambo that is mine, yeah/Let's stop at Rodeo I design yeah/Make her whip over the stove no lasagna" —Quavo
"Just let up the top and close the curtain, please/I decided to go up like Major League/She just popped the Perky just like pork and beans/She just popped the Perky, say I hurt her knees/She hurtin' me, wrist strong, Hercules/Two cups, Martell pour it neat/Serve a fiend, fuck a bitch, then go to sleep/I need to get me a mil' before we leave/No key pull up, remember me/'Member me, oh, 'member me" —Quavo
"Move the scene, move the block/I'm with the team, we all-stars/This all I got, I can't stop/Came from kickin' in doors, hop out Benz, shootin' at ops/She gave me mouth, the dental floss/I bought a boat, I feel like a boss/Pull up on the dock, park the drop/Just give me my ends, give me my knots" —Quavo
"They say my time is tickin', these hoes is optimistic/Somebody told you not to fuck with me, I would listen/Now this big mama, big watch, big charm/I get pissed off, you get pissed on/Look, courtside at the Garden, just to see LeBron/I don't do number two, that's the type of shit I'm on" —Cardi B
"Kama glitched, diamonds see-through clear/Keep that shit, keep that shit over there/Look at my ice, hit 'em with a right, then left/And the gang-gang nice, big drip better watch you step/Check your tone, I made my guap to feed my own/Remember the nights, I'm tellin' my nigga that, 'We gon' be on'?/Whippin' the chicken, I'm whippin' the brick and my eyes is closed/In love with the money, I got on my knee and I had to propose" —Takeoff
"Mama gonna kill me, double cup spillin'/Every time I get the hundo, Will I'm trippin'/Every time your bitch phone rings she workin'/Get no playin' time, Kendrick Perkins/Rockin' Timbs like I'm in New Jersey/Dubs versus Hawks, took off KD jersey/And he scored a 30/Up real early, servin', servin', servin'" —Quavo
"They hatin', contemplatin' on the money I'm makin'/First niggas trappin' out the bando, you fakin'/Karate chop the brick, cut it up, Ninja Gaiden/Go and get the re-up, out the buck, not later/Kickin' my feet up, the J wanna eat up/Your bitch addicted to this drip like a needle/Detective on my back, just took my money, I'm illegal/Shootin' at the pigs, they been killin' all our people" —Offset
"I'm doin' just what I wanna/Don't believe me, bet a hundred/Bet a nigga won't go under/Huncho realest out the jungle/I got the bricks from Wakanda/Them boys did the block over yonder/12 tried to pull a young nigga over/One call to my mama" —Quavo
"Pull up, I'm the life of the party/4x4 truck sittin' on Forgis/488 with a 8, that's shawty/Lime Lamborghini sittin' pretty, that's Cardi/Blue Lamborghini Diablo, gon' Offset's/Havin' talks in the Wraith, 'bout to take off/Me and Pee in the Dawn havin' boss talks/Got the game from, bruh, that's where I walk" —Lil Baby

"Bought me a strap, issue silence/It's a shame, these young niggas drinkin' Wocky/And Quali, me and Wop were drinkin' Act'/Back when Follie's didn't let me in with that gat/Now it's jets, designer clothes, flex/MET Gala carpet, walk it like I talk it/All these hoes stalkin', shake these haters off me/You got a big mouth, like a gator talkin'" —Quavo
"Came from the jungle, we hot but we humble/You want to reach out tell her, just put down your number/If she's not a bad gyal, then I do not want her/I like to try new things, but not with one woman/Got to be three or four of 'em/Yeah, we drippin' designer, but grind on the floor/And I do not care what I drink, just keep pourin'/Already know what she think, girl just go in/She 'bout to go to the dance hall/Two bad bitches got a dance-off/By the end of the night, I tried 'em all/We get allowed to swing" —Quavo
"Went to sleep, I had a dream of that fishscale/Woke up, then put it right on the street at retail/Lifestyle, it get crazy, it get brazy yeah/My bitch mad at me, the days get rainy, yeah/She always try to leave, she say I'm too player/Oh, you lost in the sauce? I hope you get well/Accomplish all my goals, congratulate me, yeah/Got the five-end guard with me, that's for safety, yeah"
