Quavo Talks Upcoming Solo Project, Biggest Goal As An Artist In New Feature

"Ain't nothing was handed to me. I grind for everything that I got."

Quavo is not the only member of the highly-successful Atlanta trap trio Migos who is releasing their own material. In an interview with Hypebeast, the Atlanta native talked about his upcoming solo project Quavo Huncho.

"We’re all getting a good month of expressing ourselves and doing our own thing," he details. "It’s just an intermission for us to get out our expressions off equally... The only thing you're going to get is Quavo Huncho on this album and that's it.”

Earlier this summer, Huncho released three solo tracks, "Lamb Talk,” “Workin’ Me,” and “Bubblegum,” which all give off different flavors from the ASCAP Songwriter Of The Year.

"I just try to be humble as possible," says the Migos frontman, who believes he's in the 'modern day top five.' "You might see me in McDonald's or something and be like, 'wow, he in McDonald’s,'" he continued. "We all came from the same spot, you know what I'm saying? Ain't nothing was handed to me. I grind for everything that I got. I worked for everything I got and I want to show the people that it can be done."

What's Quavo's biggest goal with his work? He says he'd love to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, but he's just here for the fun ride.

"I’m trying chase my goals and making my parents proud of me and keep working and dropping new music and keep creating," he says. "I can’t never stop creating, when you stop creating you’re dead."

Love To See It: DaniLeigh Choreographed DaBaby's Extraordinary "BOP" Video

Nearly reaching 10 million views in a matter of days, DaBaby's "BOP" music video teaser has A-1 editing, hilarious characters (recorder guy) and perfect choreography. As it turns out, we have DaniLeigh to thank for the rapper's smooth dance moves.

The singer-songwriter teamed up with choreographer Coach Cherry to share her eclectic dance style with the buzzing rapper. "BOP" dropped Friday (Nov. 15) as "BOP on Broadway" with a bevy of dancers taking part in the one-shot style video. Directed by Reel Goats, the teaser feels like the full music video for the single thanks to the three different dance flows including a surprising set by the iconic Jabbawockeez.

DaniLeigh's influence can be felt throughout the video thanks to her signature moves. With her own video reaching 100 million views on YouTube, the singer continued her winning streak with the remix for "Easy" featuring Chris Brown.

The video earned her a Soul Train Music Award nomination for "Best Dance Video" and inspiration for lovers of dance challenges. The Dominican-American might look familiar to many thanks to her contribution to the infamous #InMyFeelings challenge where she managed to hop and bop out of moving car. Ironically, the "Lil Bebe" singer started her career as a backup dancer for the likes of Nelly Furtado and Pharrell. She also choreographed and wrote the treatment for Prince's visuals for "Breakfast Can Wait."

"He wanted it really big in the dance industry so from there, I held auditions and did this video on my own," an 18-year-old Dani told VIBE in 2013. "It's crazy and hard to believe but it was great."

Dani recently released "Cravin" featuring G-Eazy and dropped her debut project The Plan late last year.

Check out the visuals to "BOP" below.
