Takeoff, a member of the Migos, was killed in Houston at the age of 28!

Along with fellow rappers Quavo and Offset, the Georgia rapper was known for producing hits such as Versace and Bad and Boujee.

Takeoff, the third member of Migos, along with Quavo and Offset, has died, according to TMZ. Around 2.30 a.m., the 28-year-old rapper, real name Kirshnik Khari Ball, was gunned down at a bowling alley in Houston in which he and Quavo were playing dice; Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene. Two more people on the property were gunned down and taken to the hospital. Quavo was not hurt.

Mates and adoring fans paid touching tribute rapper on Twitter. “I recall Takeoff being a really humble and cool dude,” boxer Chris Eubank Jr. wrote. “I can’t believe I’m having to say it about some other young black star being murdered for no reason; something in the industry needs to change.”

Takeoff, rest in peace, I just spoke to you,” wrote Twitch streamer Adin Ross. “I’m in a state of shock right now; I can’t believe it.” I hope it’s a forgery. This shit isn’t fair, bro, wtf.”

Takeoff was born in 1994 in Lawrenceville, Georgia. In 2008, he began rapping with his uncle and cousin, Quavo and Offset, under the moniker Polo Club. Juug Season, the trio’s debut mixtape as Migos, was released in 2011. “When I was younger, I wanted to be a musician. “I was grinding, which was exactly what I enjoyed,” Takeoff informed The Fader in 2017. “I’m just making something like that and creating for myself… I was enjoying myself because it was something I enjoyed doing. I’d wait for Quavo to return from football practise and play him one of my songs.”

Versace, Migos’ first mainstream hit, was released in 2013. The music was noteworthy for popularising the triplet flow – Migos’ signature rapid-fire cadence – in modern rap, and it was ultimately remixed by Toronto rapper Drake, who went on to have a long-running relationship with all three members of the group.

Migos are mainly remembered for their 2016 Lil Uzi Vert partnership Bad & Boujee, which peaked at No. 1 in the United States, in addition to their Top 10 hits MotorSport (featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B) and Walk It Talk It (featuring Drake). Takeoff has released one album as a solo artist, The Last Rocket, which debuted at No. 4 in the US, and one as a duo, Only Built for Infinity Links, which was released last month with Quavo.
