US rapper Offset has paid tribute to his late Migos bandmate Takeoff in the wake of the hip-hop star’s tragic death. According to The Shade Room, the rapper changed his Twitter profile picture to one in which Takeoff looked as if he was lost in thought shortly after he was shot and killed in Houston at age 28.
Offset did not share any additional comments on the death of Takeoff, who was his first cousin and with whom he performed in the band Migos alongside Quavo.
According to TMZ, he is rumoured to have cancelled his shows in Boston. Cardi B, who’s married to Offset and shares two children, also addressed Takeoff’s death by retweeting a throwback interview clip of Migos speaking to Complex.
In the video, the group members were asked about the best gift they’d ever received. “My best gift from my brothers is my brothers. None of us would be here without each other. We’ve held each other up through hard times, through good times. We’re with each other. We’re all we got. I don’t know nothing else,” said Offset in the clip.
Takeoff agreed with Offset in the Complex interview before showing off a ring he received from his mother featuring a photo of them together from his infant years. “It’s always gonna stay with me… I ain’t gonna never take it off,” he said at the time.
Though Offset (real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus), Takeoff and Quavo started Migos as a trio, the status of Offset’s relationship with Takeoff and Quavo at the time of Takeoff’s death remains unclear, as the two had moved forward as a musical duo without Offset in recent months.
