Offset, 30, uploaded a picture on Tuesday of his cousin and fellow Migos member, who perished in a shooting on November 1 in the early hours.

Offset captioned the photo with the dedication, “Missing everything about you, particularly that smile,” in honor of Takeoff (actual name Kirsnick Khari Ball).

According to prior police confirmation, Takeoff, the rap group’s youngest member, was fatally murdered outside a bowling alley in downtown Houston. He was 28.

“At 2:34 this morning, police were alerted to a shooting that was taking place. Soon after, officers showed up to the Billiards & Bowling Alley in the city center. They discovered a dead male when they arrived. It has been determined that the man in question is Kirsnick Ball, also known as Takeoff. He is a member of the Atlanta-based rap trio Migos “At the time, police chief Troy Finner said during a press conference.

“I got many calls from Houston and outside of Houston. And everyone spoke of what a great young man this is, how peaceful he is. What a great artist.”

When an incident started, Takeoff and Quavo, another rapper from the Migos, were at a private party. Quavo, 31, escaped the encounter unharmed.

Sgt. Michael Arrington said during the news conference that “a private party was booked out for the event. After that finished, a large group of people gathered at the front door area outside of the building, and that led to an argument where the shooting took place from the disagreement.”

“A lot of the people that were there fled the scene and did not stick around to give a statement. We’re asking them to either call us at the homicide division or if they would like to remain anonymous, they can call Crime Stoppers. We’re looking for any information at this time — any videos, any information. We need all of y’all to send those to us so we can solve this case. We’re looking for anything to help us. We want to find justice for this family.”

Offset’s emotional Instagram post was the first to respond to Takeoff’s passing.

“It doesn’t feel right to publish you like this, Take… This continues to feel unreal. I’ve been trying to find the appropriate words to say, but none seem enough “Offset contributed to the emotional post in part.

He added, “I wish I could hug you one last time. Laugh one last time. Smoke one [sic] last time. Perform one last time. I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven now. I hope you can see how much we love you and miss you. You have left a hole in my heart that will never be filled.”

Takeoff’s uncle Quavo also posted heartfelt messages about the tragedy on social media.

“Since nephew wasn’t it, I’ve been trying to figure out who you are to me in your truest form. We always knew we were much closer than that and we hated the word “nephew” or when they said “Unc and Phew,” which also made me feel old “Writer Quavo discussed his friendship with Takeoff.

“Now I finally get it… you are OUR angel watching me and watching us this whole time in living form, making sure EVERYONE FELT UR LOVE AND HUGS while u here, and u made our dreams come true.”

Since then, a number of musicians have paid tribute to the Grammy-nominated singer who, together with Migos, is credited with popularizing the triplet flow in hip-hop and scoring two No. 1 albums with 2017’s Culture and 2018’s Culture II.
