Migos rapper shot dead
The young American rapper Takeoff, member of the group Migos, was shot dead Tuesday morning in a bowling club in Houston, Texas, at the age of 28, reported the specialized media TMZ.
Real name Kirshnik Khari Ball, the artist was spending the evening with one of the members of his group around 2:30 a.m. when the police were called for shootings in a bowling club with a deceased person, according to TMZ.
Two other people were injured and hospitalized.
The TMZ site even released screenshots of the crime scene where we can see a body lying on the tiled floor and several people at his bedside.
Born on June 18, 1994, Takeoff was known to be part of the rap group Migos with his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset, now married to American rapper Cardi B.
The group Migos, originally from Atlanta, rose to prominence in 2013 with their hit “Versace” which Canadian rapper Drake had remixed.
But it was 2016’s “Bad and Boujee” that propelled them to the top of the charts thanks to hip hop production company Coach K, which popularized rap from the southern United States.
Their albums “Yung Rich Nation” (2015) and “Culture II (2017) from the Motown and Capitol Records labels were big hits, followed in 2021 by “Culture III” and their latest title “Messy”.
