Following the touching performance, the “Hotel Lobby” performer remained on stage holding Takeoff's chain to the sky as the curtain came down. The 31-year-old released the single last January 2023, just two months after Takeoff was shot and killed in November in Houston, Texas. The hip-hop star was just 28 years old.
