On the heels of announcing his new movie role alongside Robert De Niro and John Malkovich, Migos frontman Quavo has enlisted Scooter Braun for management, Billboard has learned. Braun will co-manage the “Workin Me” star alongside the rap group’s current manager, Danny Zook, sources tell Billboard.
Braun’s management company, SB Projects, includes a roster of top-tier artists headlined by Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Demi Lovato. Quavo joining Braun doesn’t affect the group’s current standing on the management side with Zook nor Quality Control, who also manages them on the label side.
While fans patiently await Migos’ elusive album Culture III, Quavo has remained busy on the solo front. Last year, he racked up three Hot 100 guest appearances, including DaBaby’s “Pick Up” and Pop Smoke’s “Aim For the Moon,” and Justin Bieber’s top-ten single “Intentions.” Quavo released his first solo album Quavo Huncho in 2018. It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. As for Migos, the group’s last album, Culture II, dropped in 2018 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. They earned 199,000 equivalent album units within their opening week.
Outside of the music, Quavo has emerged as a savvy businessman, piling up a bevy of partnership deals, including ambassador roles for sports apparel company Lids and cognac company Martell.
Earlier this week, he spoke with Billboard about his newest movie role in Wash Me in the River.
“I’m a ruthless gangster, ruthless killer named Coyote,” he revealed. “It’s just an honor to be on the screen with Robert De Niro, Jack Huston and John Malkovich. I’m just blessed and I can’t wait for y’all to see it. It’s a very action-packed movie. I had fun doing it. I stayed in Puerto Rico shooting for a whole month grinding. There was some long film days. Them film days are different. It’s like you’re shooting a video all day.”
This Saturday (March 6), Quavo will play alongside Jack Harlow in a two-on-two matchup against 2 Chainz and Lil Baby as part of Bleacher Report’s Open Run. The event will be live-streamed at 8 p.m. ET on the Bleacher Report app. The winning team will split the purse and donate a portion to HBCUs of their choice.
