Rest Easy Takeoff
ATL’s own Takeoff will be laid to rest this Friday. Fans can connect at State Farm Arena… As of this article time, it is still unclear about public invitations to services.
Born Kirshnik Khari Ball, Takeoff formed Migos in 2008 in Atlanta along with his uncle and cousin, with whom he was raised. Their first big success came in 2013 with their single “Versace,” which was later remixed by Drake. They followed it with popular singles including “Fight Night” and “Look at My Dab” before the wild popularity of their 2016 album “Culture.” It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart and spawned the No. 1 single “Bad and Boujee” as well as the hits “T-Shirt” and “Slippery.” Migos continued releasing hits such as “MotorSport,” “Stir Fry,” and “Pure Water,” most recently releasing “Straightenin” from the album “Culture III” in 2021. Takeoff also had a solo career with singles including “Last Memory,” “Hotel Lobby,” and “Party” with DJ Khaled. In 2022, Migos split, with Offset leaving the group. Just a month before his death, Takeoff released the album “Only Built for Infinity Links” as a duo with Migos bandmate Quavo.
