Hollywood and the hip-hop industry are reacting to the shocking news about the passing of Migos rapper, Takeoff, who was shot and killed at a venue in Houston, Texas on Tuesday (Nov. 1).
The 28-year-old was reportedly playing a game of dice with group member Quavo when an altercation broke out resulting in a shooting, according to Click2Houston. 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, Takeoff's uncle, and Offset, his cousin. The group released their first mixtape, Juug Season, in 2011, before breaking out commercially in 2013 with their hit single "Versace," which was notable for popularizing the group's triplet flow - Migos' signature rapid-fire cadence - and Drake eventually remixed it. Other hits include "Bad and Boujee," which reached No. 1 in the US, and "Walk It Talk It" with Drake.
Ja Rule, Yung Miami, Bow Wow and other celebrities have taken a moment to share their condolences on the horrific news of the Atlanta artist, gone too soon. See below:
