Early Life

Quavious Keyate Marshall who is popularly known Quavo was born on 2nd April of 1991. He went to the Berkmar High School but dropped out in his senior year as he realized his love for music.

He was good at playing football and played as a quarterback for his school team and also excelled at sports like basketball and golf. He started his career by being a part of Migos a brainchild of his.

He lived with his nephew, Krishnik, and their mutual knack in music helped them to bond and wrote songs at that tender age. This strong obsession made him eventually drop out of school.


Along with his nephew Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball) and cousin Offset (Kiari Kendrell Cephus) he began to work in ‘Migos’ which was formed by him in 2009. Quavo tried to pass his experimental mixtape around the school, but he faced ridicule but soon after Offset became interested in his music and joined the group. They initially decided on the name ‘Polo Club,’ but soon it changed to ‘Migos.’ The members were familiar with each other as they lived under the care of Quavo’s mother. The first mixtape that the group released on 25th August 2011 was Juug Season and soon followed it by one on 1st June 2012 called No label.

The track that brought prominence to ‘Migos’ was their single; “Versace” in 2013 became quite popular among people. The song was also released in remix featuring Drake, and it reached the number 99th on the Billboard for Hot 100 chart and 31st on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

It didn’t receive overwhelming reviews, but a single called “Look at My Dab” was able to secure position in charts like the Top R&B, Billboard of Top 100, and Hip-Hop Songs Chart.

In the summer of 2016 ‘Migos’ released an extended play 3 Way containing five tracks, Coppers and Robbers, 3 Way, Savages Only, Can’t Go Out Sad, and Slide on Em, the last featured the artist Black Youngsta. The piece was produced by Cassius Jay, Dun Deal, Zaytoven, and Ricky Racks.
