Funeral arrangements for rapper Takeoff have been announced. Takeoff, born Kirsnik Khari Ball, will be laid to rest in his hometown city of Atlanta with a funeral at the State Farm Arena on Friday, November 11. Pastor Jesse Curney III from Lilburn’s New Mercies Christian Church will give the eulogy.
The late Migos rapper was shot and killed at a bowling alley in Houston last week. The altercation occurred during a private party of about 40 people, and the rapper was pronounced dead at the scene. Fellow Migos member Quavo, who was also present, was uninjured. Houston police have said the investigation into his death is ongoing and haven’t publicly announced the arrests of any suspects. At just 28-years-old, Takeoff was the youngest member of Migos alongside family members Quavo and Offset.
Takeoff and Quavo released a project recently under the moniker “Unc and Phew,” while Offset went off to work on his second solo album. Takeoff and Quavo had just released a video for their single “Messy,” on October 31, the day before Takeoff’s death, from their collaborative LP Only Built For Infinity Links.
