Rap and hip-hop have over the years become an outlet of self-expression that has helped turn away young men and women from social vices and increased their creativity as well as their self-worth. This art has seen the likes of legendary Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cents and even Quavo, whose moniker is Quavious Keyate Marshall come off the streets while adding great vibes and sounds to our world.
This article is about Quavo, a hip-hop artist who is making waves and has won a few awards which include the BET and nominated for several others, like the Grammy and Billboard awards. Let’s look at his net worth, love interest and other facts you should know about Quavo.
He is a well-known American rapper and hip-hop singer who has written and produced quite a lot of songs to his credit. He was born in Athens, Georgia, the United States of America on the 2nd of April 1991 to Edna Marshall a hair stylist and maker and his father was said to have bitten the dust when the rapper was only but 4 years old which thrust the care and upbringing of the rapper solely on the Mother whom through the hard work and her trade saw the young man through his early years in development till he charted his own course in life.
There are no records of any direct siblings but he grew up with his cousin Kiari Kendrell Cephus and nephew Kirshnik Khari Ball whom his mother also groomed in the suburbs of northeastern Atlanta- Gwinnett County. The trio built a strong bond and the bond has helped them even as a music group.
He schooled in Berkmar High School and was active with the football team playing the position of a quarterback. He eventually dropped out of school in his senior year charting a new course for himself in the music industry. The rapper originally started making music with his extended family members way back in 2008 when they formed their group called Polo Club, a name they had to change into Migos because it did not serve their need.
Though the trio had released 2 mixtapes in 2011 and 2012 – Juug Season and No Label – they only became a force to been reckoned with when their song Versace dropped from their 2013 mixtape, Young Rich Niggas and subsequently went viral. The dust over the hit had barely settled down when the Canadian born rapper Drake made the remix of the same song in 2014.
His group Migos were very enthusiastic and embarked on other projects that saw 2 albums Young Rich Nation and Culture drop in 2015 and 2017 respectively. The albums were rapidly seen climbing the charts with Culture spotting the No. 1 position of Billboards 200. The double success and their collective efforts gave Quavo more recognition as several top shot artists such as Young Thug, Kanye West, Lil Uzi Vert, Travis Scott, etc all featured him in their works and also collaborated with him in his own projects.
Quavo is also part of another music crew other than the Migos, This group dubbed Huncho Jack is a duo which he formed with rapper Travis Scott and together, they released his personal collaborative effort titled Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho in 2017.

The Migos as a group is estimated to have a net worth of about $ 4 million, after their No 1 hit song Bad and Boujee dropped an estimation that would have seen a sharp increase of $50 million with the released 3rd album Culture 2 which has been viewed by over 1.6 billion people on the YouTube.
In a contrast, the Uncle of Take Off’s (Quavo) net-worth too has increased from the former $ 10 million to $16 million after he dropped his own solos and his new Jack Huncho album started pumping the airplay.
