ffset, one-third of the Migos, shared a loving tribute to their former bandmate Takeoff, who was shot and killed in Houston earlier this month.
‘The pain you left me is unbearable,’ he wrote in an Instagram post. ‘My heart is broken and I have so many things to say but I can’t find the words. I’ve been going to sleep and waking up hoping this is all a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.’

He continued: ‘Every time you saw me, you didn’t slap me, you gave me a hug. I wish I could hug you one last time. Laugh one last time. Smoke one last time. Perform one last time. I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven right now. I hope you can see how much we love and miss you. You left a hole in my heart that will never be filled. Give me strength, give strength to your brothers, give strength to your family. Even though I know you’ll always be with us, give me a little sign or a beautiful dream. I love you forever. 4L and then.’

In addition to the note, Offset also shared videos and photos of him and Takeoff (whose real name was Kirsnick Khari Ball) together.

Over the weekend, Quavo — the third member of Migos and Takeoff’s uncle, though they were only four years apart — also shared a tribute on Instagram.
‘I am proud to be your uncle,’ he wrote. ‘I’m proud that we’ve seen the world and done things we could never have imagined together. We laughed a lot more than we argued and when we did I was always wrong every time. […] You will continue to send your blessings from heaven and I will continue to keep your name alive as long as I live.’

Quavo was at the scene when Takeoff, 28, was shot and killed. The two were playing craps at a party outside a bowling alley around 2:30 am. Police officers told the KPRC Houston website that a crowd of approximately 40 or 50 people was at the scene when the shooting took place. Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene, while Quavo was unharmed. Two other people were shot and taken to the hospital.

Takeoff’s funeral took place in Atlanta on Friday and welcomed friends, fans, family and music industry colleagues, including Justin Bieber and Drake, who took to social media last week to pay tribute to Takeoff, writing : ‘I have the best memories ever. of us seeing the world together and bringing light to every city we touch. That’s what I’m going to focus on for now. rest in peace, spaceman.’
