On Tuesday morning, members of the Hip-Hop community, including Scarface, Westside Gunn, and media figures, expressed their sorrow over the passing of Takeoff, a member of the Migos.
After Takeoff, a member of the Migos and Unc & Phew passed away early on Tuesday morning, the entertainment industry is in profound mourning. The incident happened as the Last Rocket rapper and Quavo, his uncle and fellow Unc & Phew member, were at 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston. Takeoff, also known as Kirsnick Khari Ball, passed away there. He was 28 at the time.
Online reactions to the announcement came from former Hip-Hop partners and famous people, like Yung Miami of City Girls, who is also a client of Migos’ record company, Quality Control Music.
Author and sports writer Jemele Hill also offered her opinions on the subject. She said that because she was still in college when The Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac were assassinated, she had assumed that rap music would not suffer any more fatalities,” it happens so regularly that you hardly have time to heal before someone else is killed.”
“Black folks should be free to wear costly things they’ve worked hard to get, be out late, and have petty disagreements without losing their lives,” Hill continued in a subsequent tweet. We keep blaming everyone and everything but the ones who carelessly fire the weapon.
Elliott Wilson, a music critic and co-host of Rap Radar, also had an open talk with the deceased rapper during a 2018 CRWN interview. Unc & Phew visited Rap Radar once more in August to talk about their debut record, Only Built For Infinity Links.
