Migos Rapper Takeoff Dead at 28

Migos rapper Takeoff, 28, has died after an early morning shooting in a bowling alley in Houston. The rapper was reportedly playing a game a dice with group member Quavo when an altercation broke out resulting in a shooting. Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, was hit by the gunfire and reportedly pronounced dead on the scene. Two others were also shot and taken to the hospital. Takeoff joined the Atlanta-bred group Migos in 2008 along with Quavo, who is Takeoff's uncle, and Offset, who is his cousin. The group released their first mixtape, Juug Season, in 2011, before breaking out commercially in 2013 with their hit single "Versace." The group recently broke up and Takeoff and Quavo released a project under the moniker "Unc and Phew," while Offset went off to work on his second solo album. Takeoff and Quavo just released a video for their single "Messy."
