“I honestly think this movie is going to be one of the greatest to come of this time,” says Quavo in a statement. “The experience was unbelievable for me, with Robert DeNiro and Jack Huston being so down-to-earth and making me feel like family.”
He continued, “This is one of my biggest debuts I’ve ever had, and [I’m] so proud of what we did, and to get to work with Randall, who’s such an amazing guy. I can’t wait to do more films with him.”
