Weezy was presented the I Am Hip Hop Award at 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards for his contribution to the game throughout his career starting way back with the Hot Boys. Before taking the stage, a video of folks like Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz and more speaking on Lil Wayne played on the big screen. All of them praised the Young Money rapper for his creativity and work ethic, qualities that made him a legend in the game. Then after introductory speech from Bun B & DJ Khaled, Weezy took the stage with his mother Jacida Carter and his daughter Reginae Carter behind him. "I must give this award to the people who refused. What I mean by that [is] the people who refused to stop supporting me during all already know. The people who refused to see me as haven't put an album out in six years, four years. You guys respected me, you guys supported me. You came to every show. You respected every album, every feature. My family. My family refused, refused to stop motivating me. To stop treating me as if I am not the man. As if I am not the father who I am. As if I am not the person who I am. They refused to let me feel anything less. Please give it up to my family." He also gave thanks to the man name Uncle Bob, a New Orleans legend that ultimately saved his life after his wild near-death experience years ago. "When I say, 'refuse,' there's a man in New Orleans, his name is Uncle Bob," Weezy begins in the early stages of a memorable anecdote. "He came into an apartment one day. He bust in the door, guns drawn—he saw nobody. He saw legs on the floor. It was my legs. He saw blood everywhere. Bunch of police hopped over me. He refused to do so. I never knew, I talked to him the other day, I never knew EMS was on the scene. He said EMS tried twice and they told him, 'There's nothing.' He refused to let that die." Weezy continues, "He told his somebody, 'Come drive this car. Forget a ambulance.' He brought me to the hospital himself. He refused to wait, he kicked in the doors. He said, 'You get whatever you gotta do and you make sure this child make it.' Not only that, that day, Uncle Bob was a homicide detective. He was off on detail. He just heard the call and came. Not only did he refuse to sit, not only [didn't] he give me to the doctors and leave, he refused to leave, he stayed and made sure that I made it."

The first Migos solo project has arrived as Quavo steps out on his own to release his debut album, Quavo Huncho. “It was just about me having all these features out and everybody assuming that I was gonna do like a solo career,” he said. “I got too much music. I got to channel it somewhere. So, dropping the solo project is a good way to do it.” Quavo said in an interview. He has found success as a featured guest on many songs over the past few years, including Post Malone’s No. 1 hit “Congratulations” and DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One” featuring Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Chance The Rapper. When Quavo was asked why now is the time for him to work on a solo project, the rapper says that he and the rest of the members of Migos want to each express themselves through full projects. “It’s like we’re all painting a different picture, and we all hear different sounds and see different pictures and got different visions,” he said. “So we all just get a chance to get that off on this album and we’ll be back for Culture III.” The 19-track project features guest appearances from a slew of big name artists, including Drake, Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Offset, Takeoff, Kid Cudi, Cardi B, and girlfriend Saweetie, among others. Meanwhile production is handled by the likes of Murda Beatz, Pharrell, DJ Durel, Buddha Bless, and more. Check out the Migos member’s Quavo Huncho stream, cover art and tracklist below. 1.
