Hip Hop Artist Takeoff Dead After Shooting Incident
(StraightNews.org) – Musicians often make music for decades, creating dozens of songs and albums for fans to listen to again and again. However, sometimes, these celebrities’ lives are cut short, often by tragedy, leaving their followers to wonder what could have been. Such is the case for Takeoff, an Atlanta-based hip-hop artist, who recently died at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas.
Around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 1, someone fired multiple shots at the 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston, lethally hitting the 28-year-old rapper who performed alongside his cousin and uncle in their group Migos. Takeoff was playing dice with a fellow band member when the incident took place.
People know the hip-hop ensemble for their 2016 collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert titled “Bad and Boujee,” which hit the top spot on the US charts. They have also worked with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B on a song named “Motorsport.”

Takeoff released his own solo music in 2018 and as a duo with his uncle Quavo this year. In light of his passing, many fellow musicians shared their love for the fallen rapper. Ugly God tweeted that Takeoff and his group “changed the whole cadence of rap” through their music. Now, it’s up to his family to carry on his legacy and continue making strides in the industry without him at their side.
