Inside Takeoff’s relationship with Uncle Quavo and cousin Offset as fans mourn Migos rapper killed by ‘stray bullet’

MIGOS had a runaway success with several hit songs in the years leading up to the tragic death of band member Takeoff.

Quavo and his nephew Takeoff announced they were pursuing a career as a duo amid rumors of a spinoff with cousin Offset just a month before the youngest member was shot to death.

Migos fans are mourning the loss of Takeoff, who was killed outside a bowling alley in Houston, Texas on Tuesday.

Takeoff, 28, spent his final moments with his uncle Quavo as they celebrated the recent release of their debut album together.

While doing press for the record, the two cryptically addressed long-running rumors of a Migos breakup.

Fans were shocked when Quavo and Takeoff teased their single together on May 11, 2022, a seemingly abrupt end to the hit rap group who had been together since 2008.

Originally calling themselves the Polo Club, the family team grew up together in suburban Atlanta, where they began making music together.

Despite major hits like Bad and Boujee, Stir Fry and Walk It Talk It with Drake, fans feared the team would split up as they pursued more independent projects.

In June, speculation continued when the trio canceled their performance at the 2022 Governor’s Ball.

Around this time, Offset and his wife Cardi B ditched Quavo and Takeoff on social media, again sparking reports.

On Monday, October 3, Quavo and Takeoff revealed that they plan to move forward as a duo.

Quavo told the Big Facts podcast: “We want to see our careers as a duo.

“We come from a loyal family that’s meant to work together and you’re meant to stay together, but sometimes when it’s not working it’s not meant to be.

“We’re on loyalty and sometimes it’s not on display. Right now we’re going to be the duo until the time says.”

The late Takeoff also commented, “We don’t know all the answers. We pray a lot, so only time will tell.”

On Friday, October 7, the trio-turned-duo released their post-Migos album Only Built for Infinity Links.

The family act’s last project together was their June 2021 studio album Culture III.

Their record label announced on November 1, 2022 that Takeoff was sadly killed after an argument broke out at a party.

Footage released by TMZ showed Quavo apparently fighting with a group of men for about 30 seconds.

The takeoff can be seen a few yards behind Quavo before the feud turns fatal.

Chaos ensued when several shots were fired at the large group, the footage reveals.

Quavo’s nephew, who stood on the outskirts of the group during the fight, was fatally shot in the head or neck after gunfire rang out through the crowd, cops said.

Quality Control Music, the label representing Migos, said the rapper was killed by a stray bullet.

“It is with broken hearts and deep sadness that we mourn the loss of our beloved brother Kirsnick Khari Ball, known to the world as Takeoff,” the label wrote.

“Senseless violence and a stray bullet have taken another life in this world and we are devastated.

“Please respect his family and friends as we all continue to deal with this monumental loss.”

It’s unclear at this point what sparked the argument that apparently led to the shooting. However, it is believed the pair were playing dice at the event.

Houston Police Department officers confirmed that a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were also shot in the shooting.

They went to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Cops have not made any arrests or released any information about who may be responsible for Takeoff’s death.
