Quavo has clarified a tweet where he said he's been taking Xanax after it left some fans concerned for his health.
On Sunday, Aug. 27, Quavo shared a tweet that alarmed some of his fan base. "I kno it's been some years but now I'm taking Xanz," he wrote, which is a line from his Rocket Power track "Disciples."
Since the tweet prompted some concern, he's shared a comment with Vibe to clarify that it's just a reference to the line from the song, which has an emotional chorus that appears to address the turmoil he's been through since losing fellow Migos rapper Takeoff.
“I’m fine. I’m okay. It’s just y’all gotta listen to my lyrics. Y’all ain’t listening to the lyrics,” he said. “So right now, I’m breaking them down over Twitter. I might say a line, I might say a bar. But if you listen to the album, those are bars and lines that I’m actually displaying on my Twitter. But I’m good. Thank y’all for ya’ll concerns.”
The tweet arrived not long after Quavo released his latest solo album Rocket Power, which pays extensive tribute to Takeoff, his nephew and frequent collaborator who was fatally shot in late 2022 at age 28. The project features appearances from Takeoff himself and frequently references the tragedy as well as the legacy he left behind as one-third of Migos.
“This album is for the Rocket, our true fans, and also, this is my therapy,” he wrote in a post announcing the album. “This album is a true reflection of how I feel right now. Sometimes I’m good, sometimes I’m down, sometimes I’m disappointed, sometimes I fall apart, but then I always find my strength again. I know everything might not be alright right now, but the Rocket showed me a way to make it right! Rocket Power keeps me going. Rocket Power gives me fuel. Rocket Power will help us all overcome whatever we’re going through.”
In July, Quavo said he's being "fueled by" the death of Takeoff. "All the pain, all the hard times, all the times I cried and all the times I just made music to pull up and try to play songs and he’s not there," he told Jamie Crawford-Walker. "I’m just trying to get this fuel from above and this fuel from the sky and call it 'rocket power.'"
