Rapper Quavo Says He Pays His Assistant $5,000 A Day

Rapper Quavo has said he pays his assistant a whopping $5,000 (£3,500) a day - and I'd just like to take this opportunity to let him know if he needs another assistant, I am happy to help out.

The rapper recently shared a photo of his assistant holding an umbrella over him while directing a fan at his face to help keep him cool.

Alongside the photo Quavo - real name Quavious Keyate Marshall - let slip that he pays the bloke $5,000 for his services.

Posting the snap, he wrote: "5k a day my asst. A millionaire!"

He tagged Joshua Washington - or @jwaash_ - in the photo, who replied: "Love you unc!"

According to Joshua's profile, both Quavo's assistant and operations management for Quavo's Huncho Records - and, if the caption is accurate, is picking up a pretty decent wage for his work.

A bit of quick maths, shows that the assistant would make $25,000 per week (£17,946), which would mean he'd be earning more than $1 million (£717,705) a year - this is pre-tax, of course, but even taking tax into account the fella is still earning a helluva lot to stand around with fans and brollies.

As you can probably imagine, Quavo has now seen the replies to his post flooded with people begging him for a job. Can't say I blame them.

Migos member Quavo is no stranger to splashing the cash on those around him.

When pal and fellow rapper Bobby Shmurda was released from prison earlier this year, Quavo picked him up in a private jet.

Shmurda - real name Ackquille Pollard - was released from New York's Clinton Correctional Facility in February after being handed seven years in prison in 2016.

Shmurda had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy and weapons possession in a plea deal after being involved in 'a protracted turf battle with multiple rivals'.

In an interview with Billboard, the Quavo said: "I'm going to get my guy. I'm personally gonna go pick up Bobby Shmurda. I'm 'bout to go get him. I'm gonna let him show you how I'm gonna pick him up, yes sir."

He then posted a clip on Instagram in which Shmurda could be seen exiting the private jet, alongside the caption: "Did six and didn't switch. Welcome home!"
