Hip-Hop Star, Quavo, Breaks Down Relationship with NBA Stars LeBron James and Trae Young
The relationship between hip-hop and sports continue to grow as the two worlds clash once again, this time in an interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks and hip-hop star Quavo.
Quavo, a member of the popular rap group the Migos, got the chance to speak up about his relationship with both Atlanta Hawks to point guard Trae Young and Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.
LeBron—long known to run with the biggest stars in hip-hop—is one of the few people who get early access to new Migos music Quavo states.
“I feel like it’s organic, and then if we just feeling the vibes, I know he needs music,” Quavo told Rooks.
He went on to also explain if James offers creative feedback on their music.
“Most definitely,” he said. “I think so. For sure…He knows the objective. He gets the point, and I feel like, with music and sports, I feel like we need that fuel.”
A Georgia native who was raised in Atlanta, Quavo also discusses his relationship with Young, the face of the Hawks’ franchise. Quavo coined Trae with the nickname “Ice Trae” back in 2018, a nickname that the young star has since embraced. The two begin to foster a relationship overtime as the Hawks grow as a contender under Trae Young.
“He good man, just coolin’. He really just be chillin. He don’t like to do too much. He just be coolin’, trying to work,” Quavo stated. “He in the ‘A’ to stay and we proud of him. It’s just a good feeling when I see him out there, you know what I’m saying.”
“Words can’t even explain it. That’s just my dawg. So whenever he hoop, I be feeling like I’m hoopin.'”
