Quavo recently released a video for “11.11,” a track from his new album, Rocket Power, which arrived on August 18.
The emotional video is yet another tribute by Quavo to the his late bandmate and nephew Takeoff.
The visual shows Quavo performing the song and driving an ATV through a thick forest. “How I look tryna dance with the devil, got ice in my cross and my dad was a reverend,” he raps at one point. “I watched my brother Takeoff go to heaven, an angel, we celebrate eleven-eleven/Greatest group, I can count up some blessings.”
Quavo previously shared videos for two other songs, “Disciples” and “Hold Me” from Rocket Power. The “Hold Me” visual featured scenes from a memorial gathering in Atlanta, where Quavo and others – all wearing shirts emblazoned with Takeoff’s face – set off sky lanterns in the late musician’s honor.
The Rocket Power album features a pair of posthumous verses from Takeoff on the songs “Patty Cake” and “Back Where It Begins.”
“I want to keep his stuff very, very, very sacred right now,” Quavo said, and added that there might be as many as 1,000 unreleased Takeoff tracks floating around. “Something about Take’s verses right now is just like so ahead of his time. Every time, it’s like he just did it.”
