HOUSTON, TEXAS: Another rapper’s death has left the hip-hop world reeling as many mourn the death of Migos member, Takeoff. The 28-year-old rapper was nephew to bandmate Quavo, and cousin Offset as they all together formed the highly successful group. In a viral video, after the rapper was shot in the head, Quavo was seen desperately trying to revive Takeoff.

The incident took place outside a bowling alley named 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston after 2.10 am, where Takeoff and Quavo were playing dice after which a brawl broke out and an unidentified person shot the rapper dead. In the footage, Quavo is seen in an orange t-shirt with others gathered around Takeoff and trying to move him, but then left him on the floor, as his uncle shouted for help, reported TMZ.

The footage that is now viral on social media shows Quavo on the phone, assumed to be with a 911 operator where he is heard asking, "What does she need to do?" after a woman at the scene claimed to be a nurse. Houston Police has already confirmed that one individual was shot dead and the other two victims are in critical condition. The authorities have said that there were 40 to 50 people at the location when they reached the scene after getting a call, reported the Daily Mail.

Quavo and Takeoff recently released their latest single as a duo, calling their team Unc & Phew. It was on Monday, October 31, when they released their latest music video, 'Messy', just a few hours before Takeoff’s killing. Migos band members, that comprised of Takeoff, his uncle Quavo, and cousin Offset were all raised together in the same house by Quavo's mother, Edna Marshal in the northern suburbs of Atlanta, claims the Rolling Stone.

The trio formed as the Polo Club and released their first mixtape, 'Juung Season' in 2011 when Quavo was just in tenth grade. They later renamed their group as Migos. Takeoff in an interview with The Fader in 2013, shared how he sees Quavo, “I don’t look at [Quavo] as my uncle, but more as my brother. But we always have clowned on each other."

Though the members of the group worked on their individual projects, they kept close, “We always family, that ain’t gonna change,” Takeoff said during the Big Facts Podcast a month ago.
