Quavo Breaks Down How Drake Got On ‘Versace’
Drake jumping on the remix of the Migos’s track ‘Versace’ played a large role in the trio’s emergence.
Migos now has a hit album under their belt, and during promo for Culture they reminisced about Drake’s valuable cosign in an interview with Ebro.
Quovo said he recalled a video in which DJ Drama and Drake were discussing Migos and another up and coming Atlanta artist, Rich Homie Quan.
“Drama was trying to tell him that Rich Homie Quan is the new thing… In the video, [Drake] was like ‘Nah man, have you heard Migos though?’” Quavo said. “When I seen that, I knew he wanted to work with us but we never met him ’til we got to Birthday Bash. And ever since then, I sent him two or three records. He wanted to get on ‘Pronto’ or ‘Versace’ and I just sent him ‘Versace.’”
In the chat, Quavo also addressed other artists using his now famous Migos flow.
“I’d rather see other artists find they own self, though,” he explained. “I like them doing it — do it once, a couple times, it let me know you watching me. But I wanna see what you do, find yourself. Maybe I can learn something from you that I can put in my music.”
