The hip-hop world is in mourning following the death of Kirshnik Khari Ball, better known as Takeoff from the group Migos. After an altercation at a bowling alley, Takeoff was shot and killed early this morning in Houston.
Takeoff, who was born Kirsnick Khari Ball on June 18, 1994, in Lawrenceville, Georgia, began rapping as a teenager alongside his uncle, who went by the name Quavo, and his cousin, Offset.
Around 2.30 a.m., Takeoff was fatally shot at a bowling alley in Houston where he and Quavo were playing dice; Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene.
Employees told police that after the party ended, a large group of people gathered outside the building's front door, resulting in the shooting.
The group "Migos" had several top ten Billboard Hot 100 hits, including "MotorSport" featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, "Stir Fry," "Walk It Talk It" featuring Drake, and "Bad and Boujee" featuring Lil Uzi Vert, which peaked at number one.
