Is it me or male rappers not living longer than 30 anymore? Every single week or month a young black rapper is killed and it’s heartbreaking.
Rest Easy Takeoff and Prayers for Quavo, Offset, and the rest of his family. ❤️😭

For those that didn’t know, Takeoff is the nephew of Migos member Quavo. It’s said there is a video shortly after the shooting of Takeoff. It is sad that we are mourning the loss of someone over something so senseless.
Hearing Quavo screaming and crying in that video was heartbreaking. No uncle deserves to see their nephew laying in a pool of blood dead. I hope the videos of his dead body gets wiped off of the internet and sending condolences to Takeoff's family and the Migos. Rest easy Takeoff
