Quavo and Takeoff — formerly two-thirds of the legendary rap trio the Migos — are built different as a duo on their debut project together.
After a series of exceptional singles, Unc and Phew are back with their first full-length project, titled Only Built For Infinity Links, complete with features from Gunna, Young Thug, NBA YoungBoy, Summer Walker and more.
Their last preview of the album came with a final track titled, “Nothing Changed,” a luxurious single that assures fans that they’re in for another album of classic trap bangers. Their final promotional cut sounds as victorious as ever as Quavo and Takeoff match the energy of a trumpet-filled instrumental.
Prior to “Nothing Changed,” both rappers showed that their existing musical chemistry has only gotten stronger on stellar singles like “HOTEL LOBBY,” “Us vs. Them” and “Big Stunna.” Features from Gucci Mane on “Us vs. Them” and Birdman on “Big Stunna” added to the hype surrounding the pair, building anticipation for their newly released LP.
The rest of the album matches the quality of their singles, with each track sounding rich with anthemic horns, booming 808s and twanging guitars backing the duo’s signature triplet flows. Even though their former trio has downsized, Quavo and Takeoff are able to play off each other in a brand-new way that highlights their bond as Unc and Phew.
Regarding any future releases as the Migos, Quavo and Takeoff visited REVOLT’s Big Facts Podcast airing out the reason why the split occurred. “I just feel like we want to see our career as a duo because we just came from a loyal family,” Quavo explained. “We’re supposed to stick together, and sometimes shit don’t work out. It ain’t meant to be.”
“We just stand on loyalty, we stand on real deal loyalty… This ain’t got nothing to do with no label, no paperwork, no QC, no nothing. This got something to do with the three brother and it is what it is. RIght now we gon’ be the duo till time tell.”Quavo on the Migos split being solely between the “three brothers”
Takeoff also added that “family is always going to be family,” leaving the door open for a reunion. “We pray so only time will tell. We always family. Ain’t nothing gone change.” Offset is in the middle of his album rollout, which is set for release on Nov. 11, amid a contractual battle between his former label Quality Control and Motown Records for the rights to his solo music.
After so much anticipation, Quavo and Takeoff’s full-length debut is a fantastic introduction to their pairing, bringing all the qualities of their former trio with a fresh take on their classic sound. With their first album out of the way, we will have to wait and see what’s next for the duo as they continue this new journey.
