Quavo, a rap artist renowned for his steady stream of artistic outputs, has unveiled his most recent visual masterpiece, “11:11.” This enthralling video, officially released to the public on August 28, represents his third visual production from his latest album, Rocket Power. This follows in the footsteps of his earlier music video releases, namely “Hold Me” and “Disciples.”
Quavo’s Journey of Self-Reflection
The visuals of “11:11” transport the audience into a world where Quavo, once a part of the famous Migos trio, is seen journeying through a forest reserve, all the while seated on an ATV. As he progressively delves deeper into the heart of the wilderness, encircled by lush greenery, the Atlanta-born rapper opens up about the pain he has been grappling with over the past year.
Quavo’s lyrics resonate with his personal struggles as he raps:
“Dark nights, I can’t sleep, so I cry ’til I close my eyes/ I never asked God, ‘Why?’/ I just go where the road designed/ Take a look in the sky, my eyes open wide/ All eyes on me, but I’m no Tupac/ I’m a G.O.A.T., I’m a boss, I’m a leader/ Won’t settle for nothing, not even if it’s cheaper”
The musical composition of this track is a collaboration between Cheeze Beatz, Go Grizzly, and Jambo.
Rocket Power: A Solo Venture
Rocket Power, Quavo’s second solo album, was unveiled to the public on August 18. It is an eclectic mix of features from other renowned artists such as Future, Young Thug, Hunxho, BabyDrill, and his late nephew and collaborator Takeoff. Rocket Power serves as a follow-up to Only Built For Infinity Links, the 2022 joint album from Takeoff and Quavo.
Life Without Takeoff: A Struggle for Quavo
Quavo, known for his track “Turn Yo Clic Up”, has found life without his partner in rhyme, Takeoff, to be extremely challenging. He revealed the depth of his pain in a recent interview, stating:
“I miss him a lot and I love him… When you see me and you see me smiling or something like that, you don’t gotta never think I forgot about him or I’ll forget about him. I think about him all the time. Sometimes I cry myself to sleep.”
Quavo’s Rocket Power album and his latest music video “11:11” serve as a testament to his artistic resilience in the face of personal hardship.
