Migos rapper Quavo slams Trump dinner for Clemson Tigers; invites team to Atlanta

On Tuesday, a day after the Clemson University football team traveled to the White House for a national championship celebratory dinner, Quavo, whose real name is Quavious Keyate Marshall, tweeted, capitalizing every word, that he wanted to “show (the) Clemson Tigers and POTUS how champs are supposed to be treated.” (Quavo photo: Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports; Trump photo: CNN)

Migos rapper and Gwinnett native Quavo apparently didn’t think too highly of President Donald Trump’s recent celebratory meal for the Clemson Tigers, which consisted of “McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King’s with some pizza,” Trump told reporters.

On Tuesday, a day after the Clemson University football team traveled to the White House for a national championship celebratory dinner, Quavo, whose real name is Quavious Keyate Marshall, tweeted, capitalizing every word, that he wanted to “show (the) Clemson Tigers and POTUS how champs are supposed to be treated.”

“Yall welcome to come by the QC headquarters anytime Dabbin dabo still #GoDawgs The Stir Fry way!” he wrote.

QC, or Quality Control Music, is an Atlanta-based record label that signed Migos, a hip hop trio from Lawrenceville, in 2015.

Quavo attended Lilburn’s Berkmar High School, where he was the starting quarterback during the 2009 season, his senior year. Though he finished the football season, he dropped out months before graduation.

It’s unclear whether the Tigers will take Quavo up on his offer, as the rapper is not the first celebrity to offer the team a meal.

“Good Morning America” host Michael Strahan, chef Ayesha Curry — the wife of Golden State Warriors basketball star Steph Curry — and restaurant executive Nick Kokonas all invited Clemson for dinner following Trump’s meal.

The President paid for the “300 hamburgers, many, many french fries — all of our favorite foods,” himself, due to the shutdown, he told CNN.

“We have some very large people that like eating,” he said before the dinner. “So I think we’re going to have a little fun.”
