Last month, Raekwon shared a photo of himself and Quavo on Instagram, which may have been a foreshadow to the upcoming title. While the pose is an homage to Wu-Tang, the cover art is also reminiscent of the Outkast Stankonia imagery.
“Tomorrow We Begin A New Chapter,” wrote Quavo on Twitter the day before dropping a preview of the anticipated project.
The album announcement comes as Quavo and Takeoff continue to poise themselves as a duo without Offset, the third leg of the chart-topping Migos trio. During an interview on Rap Radar, Quavo and Takeoff discussed their new era as Unc & Phew.
“We’re bouncing off each other,” Takeoff shared. “The chemistry, it’s been there since day one, so we easily bounce off [one another].”
“The chemistry the same, the recording the same,” Quavo added. “We always normally record by ourselves because we’re so crazy on just dropping new sh*t on each other. So when he goes off and record by himself, I can’t wait til he come back and just bring some sh*t in. Make sure he leave the open verse.”
Only Built For Infinity Links is set to debut on October 7 via Quality Control Music Group/Motown Records. The lead single, “Hotel Lobby,” was released in May and certified gold by the RIAA last month.
