What Migos’s Quavo Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hairspray and the electric toothbrush. We asked Migos’s Quavo — whose second clothing collaboration with boohooMAN recently launched — about the protein powder, headphones, and video-game controller he can’t live without.

As a kid, I grew up eating fruit snacks — Fruit by the Foot and Fruit Roll-Ups were always my two favorites, but Fruit Roll-Ups now win because they did a collab with Jolly Ranchers and come in all of the Jolly Rancher flavors. I stock boxes of them. You know, Jolly Ranchers are hard, but I’m addicted to the flavor — so these are like a soft, chewy, stretchy Jolly Rancher. They’re so good.

I had the episodes early, and watched it with Travis Scott. I loved it. It showed me that, mentality-wise, I’m on the right track for my music career — I really train like a champion. To see the role that Jordan had as a leader of a team that won championships … I compare that to our group.

I was a Jordan fan growing up, so the original Jordan 5s have been my favorite forever. I’m talking about the OG 5s, the pair that first came out, not the rerelease. I don’t wear them: I cherish them and put them in a case. I got mine when I was in Paris for Fashion Week; I was looking for the Paris 5s — Michael Jordan had dropped an all-Paris edition of the shoes — and ended up finding the original OG 5s instead.

I’m constantly listening to unreleased Migos music, and I walk around with this boombox. I’m like a walking party. You just have to pull up and press play.

After I work out, I have a protein shake, just to put back some of what I’ve burned during training. I’m trying to get my training mentality together during quarantine so when I get onstage I can lift a fan if they need to be lifted onstage. The quarantine workout is a secret sauce — I can’t give away the secret sauce until I’m on the front of GQ.

It’s one of my new things that I already can’t live without. I need to have a massage after I work out to get those muscles back to their regular way. I heard about it through a trainer. Somebody hit my quads with it, and I never looked back.

This right here is the ultimate in time travel — playing PS4 just passes the days. I take it everywhere, I even have this little case for it. It’s my buddy. I’ll connect with people on the internet, playing with folks from different countries, different worlds, different zones. It’s fun and relaxing and therapeutic. I play Blackout, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, and Madden.

This PS4 controller has six to eight triggers on it and lasts longer than other controllers. It also helps your aim on certain games. It’s equipped for the games that I’m playing, which is why I like it. And it most definitely has some cushion.

It’s a cover for a microphone that helps you get a quality, crispy sound when you’re recording. I’ve been using it for about two years; I discovered it on a tour bus. Sometimes we just have the microphone in the room with everyone, so putting this on kind of cuts the background noise down.

We’re on our second season of the boohooMAN Huncho collection now. From season two, this black T-shirt is my favorite, favorite shirt. I literally wear it all the time. Those are my hands on the shirt, with my rings that are done by Eliantte, a jeweler in New York. I wanted it to look kind of like the Hollywood sign on my hands, but with “Huncho.” I’ll wear the shirt with some jeans or some sweats. It’s really versatile.
