Quavo Says ‘Sometimes I Cry Myself To Sleep’ Over Takeoff’s Death

The Migos rapper spoke about his memories of his fellow trio member.

Quavo is reflecting these days, particularly about his late nephew and fellow Migos member Takeoff, who was tragically shot and killed late last year.

During an interview with Jamie Crawford-Walker via YouTube, he explained how losing his family member has left a big hole in his life.

"I don’t know what I’m doing," Quavo said. "I feel like I’m just floating. I’m a grown man and I just feel like I’m here for a reason. And once I get my job done, we all gotta go. I’m just here until the job is done so I can get back with my boy."

Additionally, he noted how his latest project, Rocket Power, is an homage to Takeoff and his ongoing grief experiences.

“It means everything to me,” Quavo said when asked about what Rocket Power means to him. “Just being fueled by my brother, Take, and bottling in all these emotions—all the pain, all the hard times, all the times I cried and all the times I just made music to pull up and try to play songs and he’s not there. I’m just trying to get this fuel from above and this fuel from the sky and call it 'rocket power.'"

Further into the interview, Quavo said his nephew inspires him and will “always” be a present force in his life.

“I miss him a lot and I love him,” he explained. “He know I love him. That’s what we always know. So when you see me and you see me smiling or something like that, you don’t gotta never think, like, I forgot about him or I’ll forget about him. I think about him all the time. Sometimes I cry myself to sleep. I just know he’s here. If I can’t feel him, I just know he’s around.”
