Quavo wants to make sure his fans are eating well this Thanksgiving. To help that goal along, he has released a cookbook of family recipes just in time for the holiday.
Titled Huncho Farms Cookbook, the new book is an initiative of his Quavo Cares non-profit, in partnership with Urban Recipe and Atlanta Community Food Bank. Along with family recipes, there are also tons of healthy cooking tips – and it’s all available for a free download here.
It’s very important to give back,” Quavo told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution while at a pre-Thanksgiving farmers market that his foundation held at Urban Recipe on Monday (November 20). “We came from nothing, so it’s only right that we give back to the people that have nothing or have less. We just try to help the best way we can. This is just a small portion to the big things that we’re doing.”
Attendees, about 300 families, received fresh produce, hygiene products, and a hard copy of the cookbook, and they also got to see some of the recipes made on-site.
On the music side of things, Quavo recently hinted that there may be a sequel on the way to his joint project with Travis Scott.
The former Migos member got fans excited in September when he took to Instagram to respond to a thread that celebrated Travis’ achievements, while subtly suggesting the possibility of an imminent release.
That’s tuff next one loading….. battery up,” he wrote, accompanied by a full battery emoji.
“Huncho Jack SO slept on shit is amazing,” read one response to the subtle announcement.
OMG PLEASE and we need The Scott’s then I can die peacefully,” wrote another user. “Hyped cause Quavo in his prime rn but I also really wanna see that Travis × Don Toliver project,” added a third.
In late 2017, Quavo and Scott partnered up for the release of Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho. Commercially, the project was well-received, debuting at #3. It beat out Eminem’s Revival, which sat in the #4 spot.
Collecting 89,775 total album equivalent units (16,561 in pure albums and a streaming count of 105,321,887), the album, which boasted features from fellow Migos members Offset and the late Takeoff, as well as production from Murda Beatz, Southside, Buddah Bless, and Cardo, was dubbed a success.
In a review of the album, DX’s Aaron McKrell wrote that “Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho conveys exactly what fans might expect from two of the hottest trap rappers out. Soaring, robo-rhythmic tunes? Check. Endless braggadocio? Check. A seamless blend of vocoder-tinged singing and cocky flows? Check, check, Nike Swoosh. But don’t expect a structured, meticulous project. Rather, it feels as if La Flame and the Migos leader went into the studio, indulged in the ganja, and all grooviness broke loose.
More often than not, this breezy vibe compensates for a lack of solid lyrical content. ‘Trampoline (trampo), Michael Jordan dreams (Jordan)/Half a bale in that vacuum clean (bale),’ Quavo rhymes pointlessly on ‘Dubai Shit.’ However, OZ and Vinyl’s bassline is so entrancing that it hardly matters what he, Scott or guest Offset say,” McKrell continued. “Mostly, though, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho further proves the duo’s strength is entertainment on cruise control.”
