Rapper, singer and producer Quavo is set to make a debut into the television scene with his move to engage in an animation franchise alongside Imagine Entertainment’s co-founder Brian Grazer.
The billboard chart topper and member of the trio rap and hip-hop group Migos will be channeling his project towards kids ranging between 8 and 12 years old as he aims to create a synergy between hip-hop and animation.
Quavo in a press statement on Thursday expressed his love for animation as well as his desire to reflect love and family in the cartoon series, which would be set in Atlanta’s musical and cultural scene.
Quavo and Oscar winner/producer of American Gangster, Brian Grazer, would both be executive producers in partnership with Imagine Kids+family president Stephanie Sperber and Marginal Mediaworks CEO Sanjay Sharma.
Quality control’s Pierre Thomas and Kevin Lee will also work on the television project alongside Capitol Music’s Brian Nolan and Ryan Allingham.
In all, this creative and entertaining venture will be Quavo’s first ever television project and will be launched alongside original soundtrack and merchandise.
In his words while commenting on his decision to engage in the project, he says “I have long seen how hip-hop as well as our music really impacts kids… I wanted my first jump into this premium content world to be a show just for kids.”
COO of Quality Control Music, Kevin Lee also had some words to share concerning the project as well as Quality control’s expansion into TV and film. “While I was growing up there was very little media that had brown and black skinned kids feeling heard or seen…” “What’s important and inspiring to me is that all kids will be seeing themselves in the faces and situations of these episodes. These episodes will impact because they are educational and positive but with the dopest visuals and sounds our iconic rap culture can provide.”
The highly anticipated television series will be a colorful and insightful blend of hip hop and animation with original voicing by rappers and appearance of popular animated characters.
