Unc & Phew – Hotel Lobby (download). Rappers Quavo and Takeoff come together to form a new rap duo as their former member Offset has reportedly left the group.
The Murda Beatz-produced track was accompanied by a video that nods to the modern-day cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The visual was helmed by Hunco Films.
The name “Unc and Phew” is a reference to the ATL rapper’s family ties, as Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle. The two spoke about their relationship during a 2013 interview with The Fader, shedding more light on their experience of growing up together in Georgia.
“We moved from Athens to Gwinett when Takeoff was in elementary and I was in middle school,” Quavo said. “His momma took care of everything, and us. We always stayed in the same house. We share everything. He’s basically like a brother.”
Takeoff added: “I don’t look at him as my uncle, but more as my brother. But we always have clowned on each other. He is my uncle, so I gotta clown on him. You gotta be funny.”
