In the clip, Cardi’s husband Offset says that the best gift he ever got was his “brothers,” Takeoff and Quavo. He said, “None of us could be here without the other.” “We support each other through difficult times and through good times. I don’t know anything else.”

Takeoff was killed in an apparent gunshot accident on Tuesday morning in Houston, Texas. The 28-year-old rapper– who was one third Migos alongside his uncle, Quavo, and cousin, Offset — was at a private party at 810 Billiards & Bowling in downtown Houston with Quavo around 2: 35 a.m. when investigators say shots rang out during an afterparty attended by around 40 people. Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene, and two other victims — a 23-year-old male and 24-year-old female — checked themselves into a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

On Wednesday (Nov. 2), the Harris County coroner’s office confirmed to Billboard that the late star’s primary cause of death was “penetrating gunshot wounds of head and torso into arm.”

Offset also paid tribute to Takeoff in a subtle, but powerful, way. The “54321” rapper changed his Instagram profile picture to a photo of the latter grinning wearing dark sunglasses. The photo’s right-hand edge is covered with a small white heart emoji.

The group released four studio albums together, the last of which was Culture III in 2021. In the months leading up to Takeoff’s death, however, many suspected that Migos was headed toward disbandment due to Offset seemingly turning his focus to solo projects, as Takeoff and Quavo worked on Unc & Phew.
