Takeoff, a member of Migos, the American hip-hop group, has been shot dead in the early hours of Tuesday in Houston, Texas.


According to TMZ, multiple witnesses said the rapper, 28, was killed around 2:30 am.

Takeoff and Quavo, another Migos member, were said to have been at 810 Billiards and Bowling in Houston, playing a dice game when an altercation broke out.

It was gathered that someone opened fire and shot Takeoff — either in the head or near his head outside of the Bowling alley.


He was pronounced dead on the scene, while Quavo was said to have escaped the scene unhurt.

The police also confirmed that they had received a call about the shooting.

Takeoff — real name Kirshnik Khari Ball — was born in Lawrenceville, Georgia, in 1994.


He founded Migos in 2008 — under the collective name Polo Club — with Quavo, his uncle, and Offset, his cousin who happens to be Cardi B’s husband.

In 2011, the trio released ‘Juug Season’, their debut mixtape as Migos.

The group rose to prominence with the release of ‘Versace’, their 2013 hit single. They would later release ‘Bad’ and ‘Boujee’.

As of the time of this report, Quavo and Offset are yet to put out official statements regarding the incident.
