Variety has just announced that Quavo aka Huncho will be developing an animated series!
The series will be targeted towards children between the ages of 8 to 12. Quavo will be teaming up with Marginal Mediaworks and the record labels Quality Control Music and Motown in order to produce this exciting project.
In an official statement, Quavo said, “I have long seen how hip-hop, as well as our music, really impacts kids. I’ve loved animation my whole life, whether on TV or in movies, and I wanted my first jump into this premium content world to be a show just for kids. It will definitely reflect the creativity, love, and families in and around the nawf side of Atlanta, where we grew up.”
He will serve as the executive producer of the series.
The COO of Quality Control, Kevin “Coach” Lee said, “What’s important and inspiring to me is that all kids will be seeing themselves in the faces and situations of these episodes. When I was growing up there was very little media that had brown and black-skinned kids feeling heard or seen, and the ones that did stood out and served as a crucial roadmap through our childhoods. I’m about inclusive stories that address all kinds of situations that kids of all ethnic and financial backgrounds experience and to give them a common tool to learn and grow. These episodes will impact because they are educational and positive but with the dopest visuals and sounds our iconic rap culture can provide.”
