Are Migos related, and how? The release of Quavo, Offset and Takeoff’s third album, Culture III, last year sparked interest in their relationships with one another. And now, fans are hoping rumours of a break up aren’t true.

Who are Migos?

Migos are from Lawrenceville, Georgia, and formed in 2008. They are composed of three rappers known by their stage names Quavo, Offset and Takeoff.

In May last year, the hip-hop trio announced the release of single Straightenin on their Instagram and Twitter. On both platforms, they wrote: “Midnight. 5/14 #Culture3.”

They later released the album’s lead single Avalanche in June last year and the album dropped that same month.

The group broke through with 2017 viral hit Bad And Boujee, which topped Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart en route to half a billion plays on YouTube.

The group now grosses north of $150,000 per tour stop, according to Forbes. Offset, 29, married fellow 30 Under 30 honoree Cardi B in a private ceremony in 2017, and did not publicly reveal the news of their nuptials until around a year later.

She announced they had split in December 2018 but called off the divorce to give it another go in November 2020.

They share three-year-old daughter Kulture and son Wave Set Cephus, eight months.

People became interested in the relationship between the band members. So, are the Migos related, and how?

Quavo, born Quavious Keyate Marshall; Takeoff, who was born Kirshnik Khari Ball; and Offset, born Kiari Kendrell Cephus, are directly related and were raised together.

In short, Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle, and Offset is Quavo’s cousin. Quavo is 31 years old, Takeoff is 27 and Offset is 30.

Spin reported in 2013 that Quavo was four years old when his father passed, while Takeoff and Offset’s respective dads abandoned them early, leaving Quavo’s mother to often care for all three under one roof.

“We’re family. We believe in loyalty,” Offset told Rolling Stone in June 2015 from a Statesboro, Georgia, jail where he was held on charges that were eventually dropped.

“We did all our dirt together,” Quavo added in the same feature. “All we had was each other.”

Are Migos still together?

Break up rumours surfaced in 2022 when people noticed Offset – and his wife Cardi B – had unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff on Instagram.

At the time of writing, Quavo wasn’t following Offset, but Takeoff still was.

According to Hypebeast, the group’s representatives haven’t confirmed anything yet, but fans are taking the unfollowing as a sign of trouble between the band members.

It came on the same day that Takeoff and Quavo both announced they’ll be dropping new music as a duo named Unc and Phew, a nod to their relationship.

Their new song, Hotel Lobby, is due for release on May 20 and fans are speculating that their decision to make new music without Offset has left him less than impressed.

They’ve all released solo material before, but Offset had said in 2018 that the group was still together.

He told XXL: “This s**t is just showcase. We just wanted to show the world that it can be done and you still be home team. But the group is for all the s**t.”
