In an ongoing meeting with XXL, for the publication’s Winter 2018 cover story, Quavo took things out on the water as he directed business while flexing his fishing skills.
As indicated by Huncho, the skill is one he gotten through lessons with his mom’s beau with he was more youthful and it’s unmistakably one that he’s come to master in addition to other things. In the video, Quavo highlights fishing as an unwinding past time that he got while experiencing childhood in Athens, Georgia where lakes and ponds are bounteous.
It was while fishing on the dock behind a Miami home that Quavo schooled us on the way to fishing, contrasting the action with the same process of making hit records.
“It’s kind of like making a hit song when you fishing,” Quavo tells XXL. “You don’t know what’s in the water. You come out with something big: That’s a No. 1 record […] You come out with something small—records that keep your head bobbing, people fuck with it, it might creep Top 10, Top 20—we throw it back. But this No. 1 you keep, you hang your plaque on the wall, skin it, filet it, eat with the gang and you back to fishing again.”
