HOW ARE MIGOS RELATED?
Takeoff, Quavo, and Offset are all related: Takeoff is Quavo’s nephew, and Offset is a cousin.
In an interview with Fader, Takeoff said that he saw Quavo as more of a brother than an uncle. However, as he technically is his uncle, he had to “clown on him” and “be funny”.
“We always have clowned on each other,” he said.
TAKEOFF WAS RAISED BY QUAVO’S MOTHER
All three members of Migos were raised together in the same house growing up. Quavo’s mother, Edna Marshall was the main mother figure for all of them, and they all call her “mama”.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Offset described her as the “father figure” in their life and said that she “knew how to raise you as a man.”
They grew up in Edna’s home in the northern Atlanta suburbs of Gwinnett County.
“She had a house full of n****s playing games, shoes off, eating all the food, and it’s hard times – but she never complained,” Quavo said about his mother.
In 2017, Quavo and Takeoff bought Marshall a house for Christmas. Quavo shared a picture of the large brown-brick abode, with was complete with a big red festive bow stuck to one of the windows, on Instagram at the time.
Takeoff grew up in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and began his career with Migos with Quavo and Offset. The group began rapping in 2008, and their first project was a mixtape called Juug Season, which was released in 2011.
Migos then released another mixtape, No Label, in June 2012. The group gained recognition for their song Versace and released their first album, Yung Rich Nation, in July 2015. They became popular for another song, Bad and Boujee, featuring Lil Uzi Vert.
Migos then released two more albums, Culture and Culture II, which charted at the top of the Billboard 200. Ball followed up with The Last Rocket in November 2018 and Culture III in June 2021.
