American rapper, Quavo, has sent off his nephew and music partner, Takeoff, with a moving tribute following the former’s funeral.
The older of the recently formed duo who were two of three of rap group, Migos, Quavo had put out a three-page tribute detailing his childhood memories with Takeoff and his earlier days as a rapper in the Migos which was influenced by Takeoff’s direction. Quavo wrote; “Dear Take, it’s so hard to tell you I miss you because you always been with me and we did everything together. Since we were kids you been by my side, lookin up at me, them eyes waiting on me to make the next move… then you followed up right behind me. You always made sure I did it first so you can do it right with me…”
Quavo also touched on Takeoff’s easygoing persona saying; “Super quiet though, quietest in the room but paid attention to everything going in the room, always been like that!!! Nothing ever really bothered Take and he didn’t bother anybody. He the most unbothered person in the world. He never got mad, he never raised his voice, and when he did, he silenced the room because what Take said was law and he wasn’t changing his mind fa na, not even Unc could, you just gotta let em cool off for bout 30mins. But by far the funniest person in the room. Once you got him goin he wouldn’t stop.”
Quavo had finished the tribute with a note to God saying, “Me and u knew we gon always be with each other for life now we gon see each other again. I love you with all my heart. I’ll never leave you I guess God just ain’t need my help, so you can ask Him for me what I gotta do to be with you again!!! I’m a place where there’s no pain, no demons, no jealousy, no envy, no greed. Whatever we have to do God to be at that place of paradise send us the tools now cuz we wanna be with Take. Love you nephew!”
Takeoff had died on the 1st of November after sustaining gunshot wounds following a shooting incident at a bowling alley in Atlanta. The rapper was buried today the 12th of November at Atlanta State Farm Arena with the American hip-hop community present as well as friends and family of the deceased present.
