Along with Quavo and Offset, the Georgia rapper was renowned for producing singles like Versace and Bad and Boujee.
Takeoff, the third rapper in the group Migos, along with Quavo and Offset, has passed away, according to TMZ. Takeoff, actual name Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot to death at 2.30 a.m. in Houston at a bowling alley where he and Quavo were playing dice. Takeoff was declared dead at the scene. Two further visitors were shot on the property and sent to the hospital. Quavo escaped injury.
Friends and lovers of the late rapper paid homage to him on Twitter. Boxer Chris Eubank Jr. stated, “I remember Takeoff being a really down to earth, pleasant man. I can’t believe I have to repeat this, but something needs to happen in the industry since another young black celebrity was murdered without cause.
Adin Ross of Twitch tweeted, “Rest in peace to Takeoff, I just spoke to him too.” “I’m shocked right now; it’s unbelievable. I beg God to make it phoney. This isn’t fair, man, what the heck.
In 1994, Takeoff was conceived in Lawrenceville, Georgia. In 2008, he started rapping alongside Quavo and Offset, who were his uncle and cousin, as the group Polo Club. The group’s debut mixtape as Migos, Juug Season, was released in 2011. “As a child, I tried to succeed in the music industry. In 2017, Takeoff stated to The Fader, “I was grinding, which was exactly what I enjoyed doing. “Just developing something for myself… I was enjoying it for myself because it was what I like doing. I would wait for Quavo to return from football practise before playing him one of my tunes.
Versace, the group Migos’ first widely popular track, was released in 2013. The song was important for popularising the triplet flow, which is Migos’ trademark rapid-fire cadence, inside current rap. Drake, a Toronto rapper, later remixed the song, and the three members of the trio would go on to work together frequently.
The 2016 Lil Uzi Vert-produced song Bad and Boujee is what made Migos famous. Other Top 10 songs by the group include MotorSport with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B and Walk It Talk It with Drake. Takeoff has one album out as a solo artist (2018’s The Last Rocket, which debuted at No. 4 in the US) and one record out as a duet (only Built for Infinity Links, released last month) alongside Quavo.
