Atlanta's hip-hop community is reeling from the news that hometown rap group Migos have gone their separate ways.
On May 18, Takeoff announced a new single, "Hotel Lobby," recorded with Quavo under the rap duo Unc and Phew (Quavo is Takeoff's uncle).
After the single's announcement, Offset and Cardi B unfollowed Quavo and Takeoff, which sparked rumors that they are done as a group.
Quavo (left) and Offset (right) are cousins.
The trio formed in 2009 under the name Polo Club before changing the name to Migos a year later.
Migos gained a large following with the release of their single "Versace" in 2013. They won Best Group and Best Collaboration at the 2017 BET Awards. Their 2016 track "Bad and Boujee" peaked at number one on Billboard Hot 100.
The group went mainstream after Offset began dating rapper Cardi B. They later married and share two minor children, Kulture and infant Wave Set.
Offset also has two sons, Jordan and Kody, and a daughter, Kalea Marie, from previous relationships.
So far, the group hasn't confirmed the rumors.
Their fans are devastated.

My 5 month old just came up to me and said “But mom, if the Migos are breaking up, what does that mean for the future of rap? Are we doomed?”
I didn’t have the heart to tell her she’s right. ?
