For almost a decade, rap supergroup Migos dominated the music charts. They achieved many accomplishments, such as tying with The Beatles for the most simultaneous Hot 100 entries of any group on the Billboard charts in 2018. Recently, the trio — which consisted of Offset, Quavo and Takeoff — disbanded, and the latter two formed the duo Unc and Phew.
As previously reported by REVOLT, yesterday (Nov. 1), Takeoff’s life was tragically cut short when he was shot and killed. At the time, he and Quavo were at a private event at 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston in Texas. There are varying accounts of what led to his death, including individuals possibly engaging in a heated argument following a game of dice. One thing is for certain, Takeoff is truly missed.
Today (Nov. 2), Offset, who was not present at the time of the shooting, changed his Instagram photo to a smiling picture of the slain artist. “Offset changed his profile to Takeoff. I can’t imagine how he’s feeling,” a fan tweeted. At this time, neither Offset nor Quavo has given a public statement about the tragedy. Since Takeoff’s death, fans have come together on social media to share their appreciation of the group’s bond and impact. “Offset was really looking like a whole proud father the way he reacted to Takeoff’s freestyle,” a fan wrote. The tweet included a video of Offset bobbing his head and smiling as Takeoff rapped at Los Angeles radio station Power 106.
Another fan posted an infamous interview clip, saying, “This was my favorite video! When Takeoff said, ‘Do it look like I was left off ‘Bad and Boujee?’’ It sent me. But it’s the way Quavo and Offset [were] ready to set things straight. I wish them nothing more than healing.” One person shared a video of the trio on an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” with host James Corden. The fan lovingly wrote, “These fools were inseparable. My heart goes out to both Quavo [and] Offset.” Another person who shared the same clip said, “This is how I AM remembering TAKEOFF. This was TOO funny.” In the video, the rappers sang their own version of a Whitney Houston song, complete with their signature ad-libs.
As many shared their favorite memories, others asked people to “stop trying to rush Offset and Quavo for statements.” Another said, “Neither of them [owes] any of us a statement at this exact moment. They’re in pain. They’re mourning. They don’t need to be by an iPhone or a laptop to cater to any of us first.”
