KNOWN for their hit songs as a group, fans of Migos were shocked to hear the group hit splitsville.
Migos members Quavo, his late nephew Takeoff, and his cousin Offset called it quits and went on to pursue other projects.

Why did Migos break up?
On May 11, 2022, Quavo and Takeoff teased a then-upcoming single from their studio album Only Built for Infinity Links.
Eagle-eyed music fans noticed that the album’s campaign was missing contributions from Offset.
Due to Offset’s absence from the project, rumors circulated that Migos intended to split up.
In June, the speculation continued when the trio canceled their performance at the 2022 Governor’s Ball.

Around this time, Offset and his wife Cardi B unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff on social media, which ignited reports once again.
Fast forward to Monday, October 3, Quavo and Takeoff revealed they planned to move forward as a duo rather than the trio they became popular for.
Quavo told the Big Facts podcast: “We want to see our career as a duo.
“We came from a loyal family that’s supposed to work together and you’re supposed to stick together, but sometimes when s**t don’t work out, it’s not meant to be.

“We stand on loyalty and sometimes that s**t ain’t displayed. Right now we gon’ be the duo till time tell.”
The late Takeoff also commented: “We don’t know all the answers. We pray a lot, so only time will tell.”
On Friday, October 7, the trio-turned-duo released their post-Migos record Only Built for Infinity Links.
The family act’s last project together was their June 2021 studio album Culture III.

Where is Migos now?
Outside of Migos, Quavo also maintains his success with his solo projects.
Back in 2018, he released his debut solo effort Quavo Huncho which saw guest appearances from Kid Cudi, Madonna, Drake, and 21 Savage.
He also made guest appearances on tracks by Fivio Foreign, Justin Bieber, and DJ Khaled.
On November 1, 2022, Quavo faced tragedy when Takeoff fell victim to a shooting in Houston, Texas.
Prior to his death, Takeoff had his own solo career out of Migos as well.
In November 2018, his solo album The Last Rocket was made available to listeners everywhere.
His 2022 songs were joint singles with Quavo such as Hotel Lobby (Unc & Phew), Us vs Them, Big Stunna, and Nothing Change.
Regarding his above-mentioned album release with Quavo, Takeoff told VIBE: “We’ve been here, like I said, for almost a decade. So, we here. We ain’t going nowhere.
“This is a real blessing that we got and real love, for music that we got and we here to stay and we ain’t going nowhere.
“We just made it feel pure and just real organic, and just like ain’t nothing changed.”
As a result of the shooting incident on November 1, 2022, Takeoff was rushed to the hospital.
That Tuesday, the late hip-hop hitmaker was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound.
Similar to his cousins, Offset released his own solo record years before the trio broke up.
In February 2019, his album Father of 4 was made available to listeners everywhere.
In the wake of his split from Migos and legal complications with former record label Quality Control Music, Offset signed with Motown Records.
His second solo project Blame It On Set is scheduled for release on November 11, 2022.
