Quavious Keyate Marshall (born April 2, 1991), known professionally as Quavo, is an American hip hop recording artist from Lawrenceville, Georgia. He is best known as a member of the hip hop and trap music trio Migos, the members of the Migos are all directly related. Quavo is Takeoff's uncle and Offset is Quavo's cousin.

Outside of Migos, Quavo has been featured on four singles which have peaked within the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Early life[edit]

Quavious Keyate Marshall was born on April 2, 1991, in Lawrenceville, Georgia.[2] Marshall's mother was a hairdresser and his father died when he was three years old,[3][4] the three members of the Migos grew up together in Gwinnett County, a mostly suburban area half an hour northeast of Atlanta. "I ain't going to sit here like, 'My neighborhood was hard, and I had to get out there and grind.' We made it hard for ourselves. We chose to stay on the streets," Marshall said.[5]

Marshall attended Berkmar High School and was the starting quarterback of its football team during the 2009 season, his senior year,[5] although he was listed as 6 ft 1 in tall, he was incredibly thin for a football player (described by the Gwinnett Daily Post as "spindly").[6] Marshall broke county records for completions and led in passing yards during the 2009 season.[7] Berkmar went 1–9 in the 2009 season, and Marshall went 19-of-25 for 201 yards and three touchdowns for the only win of the season.[8][9] Speaking on his ability as a football player, Marshall's former coach said: "He was very smart on the field, understood the offense and how to read the defense."[10]

Despite finishing the football season, Marshall dropped out of Berkmar months before graduation.[11]

Musical career[edit]

Migos was formed in 2009 by Quavo, and was later joined by fellow rappers Takeoff and Offset, the group was formed after Quavo began to pass around his mix tape at his school and became ridiculed for it. Offset soon came up to Quavo and told him he liked his music and asked if he could join him.[citation needed] The group was originally known as Polo Club and are from Lawrenceville, Georgia, the group eventually decided to change their name to "Migos" after the clothing brand Polo went out of style. The three members are directly related and were raised together by Quavo's mother. Quavo is Takeoff's uncle, and Offset is Quavo's cousin,[12] the group released their first full-length project, a mixtape titled Juug Season, on August 25, 2011. They followed with the mixtape No Label, on June 1, 2012.

Migos rose to prominence after the release single "Versace", released in 2013, the song was remixed featuring Drake and peaked at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at 31.

After the success of Migos' second studio album Culture, which reached number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, Quavo was subsequently featured on several popular songs, including "Congratulations", "I'm the One", "Portland", "Strip That Down" and more. In an interview with GQ, Houston-based rapper Travis Scott, with whom Quavo previously worked with on the Young Thug collaboration "Pick Up the Phone", revealed he had a collaborative album with Quavo in the works.[13]

Legal issues[edit]

On April 18, 2015, authorities stopped a Migos concert at Georgia Southern University and arrested all three members of the group, as well as several members of their entourage. Quavo was charged with possession of an unspecified Schedule II narcotic, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm in a school safety zone, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime,[14][15] he was released from jail on bond, and later pleaded no contest to misdemeanor marijuana charges and received a 12-month sentence, which was suspended based on payment of fines.[16][17]
