TakeOff’s Family Holds Atlanta Candlelight Vigil In His Honor

A mural has also been painted in the city to remember the Migos rapper.

Migos rapper TakeOff was honored at a vigil in Atlanta hosted by his closest family and friends after he was shot and killed in the crossfire at a private event in Houston on Nov.1.

Footage of a candle-lighting ceremony surfaced online on Friday (Nov. 4) and showed TakeOff’s loved ones gathered around chanting his name before releasing balloons into the sky that spelled out his stage name.

“R.I.P. [Rest in peace] TakeOff,” and the phrase “Nawfside,” can both be heard in the video clip.

Quavo‘s assistant Joshua “Wash” Washington was also shot during the altercation and was rushed from the scene to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting is still under investigation by the Houston Police Department which is calling on the public to help identify the shooter.
