Quavo from Migos Just Rolled into the Met Gala Rocking a Crash Bandicoot Chain

Quavo from Migos Just Rolled into the Met Gala Rocking a Crash Bandicoot Chain

Aku-Aku makes his debut on the most fashionable night of the year.

No one drops an ad lib quite like Quavo from the rap trio Migos, and his stunning Versace'd out look tonight for the Met Gala might be his greatest surprise callout yet. It's not a surprising designer of choice, considering the Migos track "Versace" probably namedrops the brand about 1,000 times. But there is at least one surprising element about Quavo's Met Gala look. Yes, I'm talking about the fact that Quavo is wearing a chain carrying the Aku-Aku mask from Crash fuckin' Bandicoot.

It's a fitting partnership, as spotted by eagle-eyed writer Aaron Dodson of ESPN's The Undefeated. You can almost hear the echo of Quavo's voice saying "Ooka booka" on a Migos track at the sight of the chain. This rare chain also definitively positions Quavo as a PlayStation fan rather than a Nintendo or Sega fan. Sorry Mario and Sonic, Crash is Quavo's mascot of choice.

By the time the Met Gala concludes tonight, there is bound to be more sly video game references at the glamorous fashion forward event. Or maybe just more people will look like JRPG villains. With the theme this year being "Heavenly Bodies," it seems entirely possible. Actress Lily Collins has basically fulfilled that requirement already.
