28-year-old popular rapper, Takeoff, was shot to death at a party
Takeoff, a 28-year-old rapper from the popular American hip-hop group Migos, was shot dead in Houston, Texas, on the 1st (local time).
According to Houston police, Takeoff attended a party at a bowling alley at 2:40 a.m. and was shot and killed immediately at the scene.
At the briefing, the police said that there is no possibility that the take-off was involved in a criminal act, but that the shooting was not an accidental incident and started to track down the criminal who ran away.
Police Chief Troy Pinner said at least two people were shot at a party attended by at least 40 people and asked for active reports from witnesses.
Another member of the trio Migos, Quaybo, was at the scene of the incident with the take-off, but was not injured.
It was confirmed that the rest of the members offset did not attend the party.
The Associated Press assessed that Takeoff was the youngest of Migos’ three members and that his personal activities were not prominent compared to Hip Hop Star Offset and Quaybo, but Takeoff’s musical presence played a major role in making Migos a popular hip-hop group.
Migos topped the Billboard singles chart and album charts several times, while the 2017 album “Culture” and the album “Bad and Site” were nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance, respectively.
