Quavo was on hand at the 52nd Annual Legislative Conference on Wednesday speaking with lawmakers on how to combat gun violence. In addition to a private meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris, Quavo also met with House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries and New Jersey Senator Corey Booker.
According to Complex, Quavo was in attendance as a respresentative of his Rocket Foundation, created in memory of Takeoff. The organization was created to “support programs which are saving lives through proven, community-based solutions to prevent gun violence.”
Joining Quavo in D.C. was his mother Edna Marshall and sister Titani Davenport who is the mother of Takeoff.
During his visit, Quavo told the Associated Press Takeoff’s death inspired his movements. “I need to step up to the plate and hit a home run. I have to do something about it, so it won’t happen to the masses—especially in our culture. I don’t want this to happen to the next person. I want to knock down these percentage.”
In August, Quavo released a new video from his Rocket Power album, sharing the touching “Touch Me” visual. The video captures a memorial event honoring Takeoff, where he and their family members gathered to let off lanterns to celebrate the late rapper.
The video also takes Quavo to Paris, where he continues to uplift the memory of Takeoff to great fan response.
