TAKEOFF shared an eerie Instagram story featuring a song titled Stop Breathing just hours before he was killed at the age of 28.
The Migos rapper was shot and killed early Tuesday at a private party at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas, a representative confirmed.
He had shared a picture of himself smoking outside the bowling alley to the Playboi Carti song before the news of his tragic death broke.
Throughout his successful career in Migos and also as a solo artist, he had also rapped sinisterly about gunfights and death.
One of Migos’ most popular songs, Stir Fry, contains the lyrics: ‘Of course I gotta watch through my bird’s eye.
“No coffin, drop dead fresh and I’ve got dead boys.”
In his 2018 song Last Memory, the Georgia native rapped about the “devil trying to take his blessings.”
‘N***** in the hood shoots twice,” he rapped. “See my N***** in the hood shoots with precision. “
Takeoff’s uncle and bandmate Quavo, 31, was reportedly present when Tuesday’s deadly shooting occurred.
It is believed that the pair were playing dice when the shooting took place.
Two others were taken to the hospital and around 40-50 people attended the private party.
It is not known what triggered the shooting as the investigation is still ongoing.
Music artists have flooded Takeoff’s Instagram page with concerned comments as they pray the “news isn’t true.”
Lil Pump said, “God please tell me that’s not true.”
Hip-hop star Kida The Great commented, “Please god don’t be real.”
DJ First Class tweeted: “Rest in Paradise Takeoff. f**k man!! Not only is it tough and I’m trying to say words but I can’t.”
And music star Curly Head Monty wrote: “RIP King. Gone too early. This shii has to stop [sic].”
Takeoff started rapping in 2008 and Migos released their first mixtape in August 2011.
Best known for their track Versace, the group achieved their debut number one single, Bad and Boujee, in 2016.
Migos are behind the hits MotorSport, Stir Fry and Walk It Talk It.
