Was the Migos’ song “Narcos” foreshadow for Quavo?
According to Entertainment Weekly, Quavo has snagged a guest role in the Netflix series “Narcos: Mexico.” The rapper will appear in the second episode titled, “Alea Iacta Est.” Quavo will be playing the role of a drug dealer from Los Angeles who visits Tijuana to introduce drugs to the Arellano Félix family.
Migos’ record “Stir Fry” is also played during the episode while Quavo demonstrates the process of cooking the drugs. The rapper also attends a welcome home party for one of the characters on the show who was previously incarcerated, but refuses to participate in drug use at the party. “I know you ain’t gonna understand this, but I’m going to tell you, like a bad b*tch told Tony, ‘Don’t get high on your own supply,’” Quavo said in a clip from the episode, referencing Tony Montana, played by Al Pacino, in Scarface. “Tony should’ve listened.”
“Narcos” showrunner Eric Newman told EW, “Those guys love the show, and I got to know their manager when they actually helped in the marketing of the last season because they just loved it so much, and they were like, ‘I want to be a part of this.’ I said, ‘I wrote you a scene, would you come do it?’ And they’re like, ‘Yep, we would.’ And he showed up.”
He added, “Now, it was supposed to be all three of them, but the music world is a different business, and so only one of them showed up, and we’re like, ‘Cool, love it.’ I would have kept him around forever. I would do a show with him. It was really fun. When you get into the business of making a TV show or movie, it’s boring, you’re like hanging around all day, but he was great and I’m excited about people discovering it when they watch.”
