Quavo has declared that he’s back in his early Migos bag for his third single of 2023, “Honey Bun,” — check out the new track below.
The track, which hears the ATL rapper puncture thumping Al Geno drums without the melodic bars he’s known for, comes alongside an ominous visual that takes fans on a heist journey to a secret vault to find out some classified information.
Quaco even takes a page out of his friend Drake’s book while sampling his “Rich Flex” flow and “21, can you do something for me” catchphrase that took social media by storm last year.
“Honeybun, can you do somethin’ for me/ Can you go automatic just for me/ Tommy gun, can you do somethin’ for me/ Can you call Al Capone for me,” he raps on the chorus in a salute to the 6 God.
Elsewhere on the track, Quavo possibly alludes to the Ja Morant controversy and defends the Memphis Grizzlies superstar who was recently suspended eight games for flashing a gun on Instagram Live before declaring that the young, hungry Huncho was back.
“They don’t want me talkin’ like this gangster, at all/ They’d rather see me on TV playin’ basketball (Fuck that), huh/ Hell nah, huh, fuck all that, I’m back/ No more Hollywood, just bring me back/ I just got a hundred bricks like hack-a-Shaq/ 2014 Huncho is back,” he raps.
Some fans were disappointed that Yeat wasn’t featured on the track after speculation of a collaboration ran rampant on social media earlier this week when photos of Yeat and Quavo together surfaced on what appears to be the video shoot’s set.
With the release of “Honey Bun” and his last single, “Greatness,” Quavo looks to be turning his pain from the loss of TakeOff into art as an album seems to be on the way, which could be titled Rocket Power in honor of his late nephew.
“This Year I Can’t Play Wit Y’all #RocketPower,” he teased on Instagram.
