On October 31, news broke that Migos rapper, Takeoff (birth name Kirshnik Ball) had been shot and killed in Houston. He was 28.

The rapper was reportedly attending a private party with his uncle and fellow group member Quavo. Fellow bandmate Migos, who is famously married to Cardi B, was not in attendance.

His official cause of death was released in early November by the Harris County Medical Examiner's office, which revealed he suffered gunshot wounds to the "head and torso into the arm," (via Hollywood Life). The rapper's death is now officially ruled a homicide. 

Many celebs took to social media to offer their heartfelt condolences and tributes to fallen icons, like  Drake, DJ Khaled, T.I., and Meek Mill. 



Now, more legends in the music industry are stepping up in this moment of sadness, with Alicia Keys and Justin Bieber reportedly set to perform at Takeoff’s funeral. 

TMZ reports that both the “Fallin’” and “Peaches” singers will be there on Friday, November 11th at noon for the service to be held at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena. The funeral is being dubbed the “Celebration of Life,” and tickets to the 20,000-seat-capacity event are already sold out. Georgia residents were granted free tickets. 

While Alicia hasn’t directly collab’d with Takeoff, Justin collab’d with Migos on the band’s tracks “What You See” and “Looking for You.”

Alicia did however post a touching tribute to the fallen Migos rapper on Twitter, writing, “This is too much…. It’s like every day RIP Takeoff. Sending light to your family and loved ones. We are losing too many too soon!!”



While he is not currently slated to perform at the Celebration of Life, Drake did postpone his Harlem concert date so he could attend the funeral, writing on social media,” The Apollo show has been moved to allow us to pay respect to our dear friend this weekend. We have added a second date for the fans,”  (per Page Six). 



On November 3, Cardi B broke her silence on the tragedy.  Complex Music tweeted an interview with Migos that showed the group being asked what was the best gift they have ever gotten. "My dudes gave me this ring," the late rapper answered, showing a ring with a small photo of a young Takeoff and his mother. "It's always going to stay with me, too. I ain't never going to take it off." Cardi B retweeted the video, which had the simple caption, "Family forever."
