Quavo’s life has been on a roller-coaster ride as of late. From being a part of one of the most successful and influential rap groups of all time, the Migos, to watching it all crumble with the group allegedly breaking up in 2022. Yet Quavo’s bout with adversity would hit it’s apex when his nephew, Takeoff, 1/3 of the group Migos would lose his life to a senseless killing of that same year. Yet Quavo took the tragedy he was dealing with and decided to face it head on. So here we are with Quavo’s first offering since the tragic passing of Takeoff. “Rocket Power“, the second studio from Quavo has officially hit dsp’s . The album is a tribute to Takeoff, and finds Quavo pouring out his emotions and showing his resilience in the face of tragedy.
It is a 18-track album that features guest appearances from Future and Young Thug, and more. The production is handled by some of the best in the game, such as Murda Beatz, DJ Durel, and Bnyx. The album showcases Quavo’s versatility as a rapper and a singer, as he switches from hard-hitting bars to melodic hooks with ease. The album opens with the title track, “Fueled Up“, which is a heartfelt dedication to Takeoff. Quavo reflects on their bond and their success, while also expressing his grief and anger over his loss.

The album then shifts to a more upbeat and energetic mood, as Quavo showcases his skills and charisma on songs like “Patty Cake” and “Back Where It Begins“, which both features verses from Takeoff. These songs are full of catchy hooks, and infectious beats that will make you want to nod your head and rap along. Quavo also displays his chemistry with his other collaborators, especially Future, who also appears on two tracks.
“Rocket Power” is a good album that showcases Quavo’s growth as an artist and a person. It is a testament to his talent, his resilience, and his love for Takeoff. It is an album that will make you feel a range of emotions, from sadness to joy, from anger to inspiration. But as a fan, it is not for me. I understand why the album was made, but out of 18 tracks, none makes me want to go back to this album. One or two songs dedicated for Takeoff I was with, but for entire album?, nah. I salute Quavo, because I’m sure this album was hard to create. But lets be honest, there is really no heat on this album or I am tripping? Let me know how you feel in the comments.
