Quavo may be one-third of the uber-successful hip-hop group Migos, but he’s also a rapper in high demand, appearing as a featured act on hits by Post Malone, DJ Khaled, Drake and Liam Payne.

The 27-year-old said he was collaborating with others so much that he had to turn down work so he could completely focus on his first solo album, “Quavo Huncho,” released last week.

He says, “I’m just going to chill and work my album and calm down on features.” He adds that he has “turned down projects all the time” because he doesn’t “want to oversaturate my sound.”
