Takeoff climbed the ladder of musical success alongside his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset. The trio made up the iconic rap group the Migos, who released four studio albums and twelve mixtapes before disbanding earlier this year. With Offset going solo, Quavo and Takeoff teamed up for a new hip-hop group titled Unc & Phew. The duo’s first album Only Built for Infinity Links released early last month and their latest visual –a music video for their track Messy– made its world debut just yesterday.
Takeoff leaves behind family, friends, and global fans that will miss him but never forget his impact and contributions to music. We at Fashion Bomb Daily send endless support and healing to his family.
