Quavo net worth

By Spear's

American rapper, songwriter and musician, Quavo, has an estimated net worth of $4.3 Million.

Born on 2nd April, 1991 at Atlanta in Georgia, as Quavious Marshall, the rapper is best known by his stage name ‘Quavo’. His mother raised him along with his nephew, Krishnik, popularly known as ‘Takeoff’ and his cousin, Kiari, popularly known as ‘Offset’ – who he later formed the rap group ‘Migos’.

Quavo attended ‘Berkmar High School Patriots’ in Lilburn, Georgia. During his school days he would play for his school football team as a quarterback. When he reached seventh grade, he found new interest in hip hop music and along with his cousin and nephew, he began composing his own music and songs.
To pursue a career in music, he dropped out of senior year in high school, and began recording songs with ‘Takeoff’ and ‘Offset’ locally. The trio used to take their songs to clubs and offer to pay for a DJ’s drink if he played one of their songs at the club.

How did he make his millions?

Along with Kirshnik (Takeoff) and Kiari (Offset), Quavo has released singles that have topped at the US music charts. The trio’s debut single ‘Versace’ was certified gold by RIAA or Recording Industry Association of America.
Quavo joined Kirshnik Ball, AKA Takeoff, and Kiari Cephus, AKA Offset, in 2011 to form Migos. His group signed a deal with ‘300 Entertainment’ and in June, 2013 they released a single ‘Fight Night’. The song was a major hit and listed on ‘XXL’s 25 Best Songs of the Year’.

He was named the most influential rapper of early 2014 by Complex Music. In 2015, he was also nominated at the ‘BET Awards’ in the category of ‘Best Group’ but unfortunately the trio lost to the duo Rae Sremmurd. Quavo released another mix tape in 2014 and suggested it to be a sequel to his earlier mix tape ‘No Label’, naming it ‘No Label II’. The tape was downloaded in great numbers immediately after its release. Just a month later, Quavo announced that the group had decided to release an album instead of another mix tape. Quavo was imprisoned on account of possession of marijuana and firearms within the safety of an educational institute at Georgia Southern University in 2015. But he pleaded not guilty and received twelve months of sentence, which was later suspended after paying a fine. In July 2015, after a slight delay regarding drug abuse, their debut album finally released. The lead single of the song ‘One Time’ hit radios before the album did, and received good reviews from music critics. The album featured guest collaborations with rap stars such as ‘Chris Brown’ and Young Thug and their mix tape was called ‘Migo Thigging’. At an interview following the success of his first album, he hinted about a second album that his crew had begun working on.

The same year, the lead single ‘Bad and Boujee’ became Migos’ first ever single to reserve the number one spot on the US Billboard Hot 100. Their second album, ‘Culture’ launched on 27th January 2017. The album has 13 tracks and has received positive reviews from music magazines. It has occupied top spots on almost all music charts worldwide. The song ‘Bad and Boujee’ also featured rapper, Lil Uzi Vert. On October, 31, 2016, the song,s music video was broadcast. Since January 2017, Quavo along with ‘Takeoff’ has been busy on their ‘Dab Tour’, with the tours opening performer as ‘Kippa da Flippa’.
