Rapper Takeoff from trio known as Migos has been shot dead early this morning in Houston at only 28 years old.
Takeoff was only one-third of Migos along with other members Quavo and Offset. The trio had spent a lifetime together.
The trio known as Migos, first known as the Polo Club, was founded in 2008 by Quavo (Quavious Keyate Marshall), Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball), and Offset (Kiari Kendrell Cephus). Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle, and Offset is Quavo’s cousin.
According to TMZ, “Law enforcement sources, and multiple witnesses, tell us the fatal incident went down shortly after 2:30 AM … that’s when cops got the call for a man shot at a bowling alley called 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston.
We’re told Takeoff and Quavo were there playing dice when an altercation broke out and that’s when someone opened fire, shooting Takeoff … either in the head or near his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.”
Migos is best known for Bad & Boujee, Culture I, and Culture II. Songs like “Stir Fry” have drawn audiences in with the profound Migos set of ad-libs and sounds.
