The Migos rapper was shot and killed at the age of 28 at a private party outside a bowling alley in Texas on Tuesday morning, November 1, just hours after he released a music video with his bandmate Quavo.
Fans have speculated that the music video for 'Messy', starring Quavo and his nephew Takeoff, contained an eerie premonition of the rapper's death. The shooting occurred after an argument broke out that was believed to be over a dice game. However, fans are saying a segment of the video shows a group fighting over an apparently gambling situation.

Meanwhile, a video has emerged where a group, including Quavo and Takeoff, are seen involved in a heated argument. There's a discussion about playing basketball, and someone, possibly Quavo, says "I don't get down like that!", reported TMZ. Seconds later, more than 10 rounds of gunfire erupt and the crowd can be seen fleeing in an attempt to save their lives. Takeoff was shot in the head and torso in the melee.
A chilling 911 call revealed a panicked Quavo desperately begging for help after his nephew was reportedly killed by a "stray bullet". Quavo and a bystander could be seen trying to resuscitate Takeoff but he was pronounced dead on the scene. In one video, Quavo could be heard asking the 911 dispatcher, “What does she need to do?” as a woman on the scene, believed to be a nurse, tries to help, TMZ reported.
Migos’ record label paid tribute to Takeoff in a statement on their Instagram. “It is with broken hearts and deep sadness that we mourn the loss of our beloved brother Kirsnick Khari Ball, known to the world as Takeoff. Senseless violence and a stray bullet has taken another life from this world and we are devastated. “Please respect his family and friends as we all continue to process this monumental loss.” Meanwhile, Migos bandmate Offset changed his Instagram avatar to a picture of Takeoff smiling with a heart on it on Wednesday morning.
