Takeoff was reportedly shot at a dice game in Houston Texas is he linked to Offset and Quavo of Migos?
Quavo is a member of the rap group Migos and Takeoff‘s uncle. Tuesday, a Migos representative told the Associated Press that Takeoff, whose real name was Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot and killed in Houston, Texas, at the age of 28.
Around 2:30 a.m., officers from the Houston Police Department were called to 1200 Polk, which is the address of 810 Billiards & Bowling, because there had been a report of a shooting there. The police also said that Quavo, whose real name is Quavious Marshall was at the private party where the shooting happened. Insider has asked people who work for Takeoff and Migos for their thoughts.
Quavo, his nephew Takeoff, and his cousin Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, started the rap group Migos in 2008. They used to be called Polo Club but later changed to Migos. In 2013, they said that the name comes from the “hub of drugs” where they grew up in Georgia.
Migos’s first mixtape, “Juug Season,” came out in 2011, but their first hit song, “Versace,” didn’t come out until 2013. After their second album did well, Quavo sang solo on a number of songs, such as “Strip That Down” by Liam Payne and “I’m the One” by DJ Khaled.
The 31-year-old rapper also put out two albums on his own, “Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho” with Travis Scott as a duo and “Quavo Huncho” in 2018.
Migos hasn’t really broken up yet, but Offset has been spending less time with the other two members of the group lately. When Migos canceled their set at the 2022 Governors Ball in June, fans started to think there might be trouble.
Since then, Quavo and Takeoff have made music together. Their most recent album, “Only Built for Infinity Links,” came out last month. Offset, meanwhile, has said that he will put out his own solo album in November. Quavo and Takeoff talked about the change from a trio to a duo on the “Big Fact” podcast from Revolt in October.
“We want our careers to go together,” Quavo said. “This has nothing to do with the label, paperwork, quality control, or anything else. The three brothers have something to do with this. And what the hell, it is what it is. We’re going to be a pair for the time being.”
