An American rapper under the stage name Takeoff, Kirshnik Khari Ball (June 18, 1994 – November 1, 2022) was born in the United States. His hip hop group, Migos, which also included his uncle Quavo and a first cousin once removed named Offset, was his most well-known affiliation. Takeoff achieved many top ten Billboard Hot 100 songs while a part of the group Migos, including “MotorSport” with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, “Stir Fry,” “Walk It Talk It” with Drake, and “Bad and Boujee” with Lil Uzi Vert, which peaked at number one. Additionally, he was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
On August 5, 2020, it was revealed that Takeoff was accused of committing “sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment, gender violence, and interference with civil rights” during a party in Los Angeles in June 2020. Takeoff was shot and died in Houston, Texas, on November 1, 2022.
Georgia’s Lawrenceville was the birthplace of Kirshnik Khari Ball. His mother, Quavo, and Offset were among the family members who helped raise him in Lawrenceville. Although he began creating beats and rhythms in the seventh grade, he did not begin making music professionally until 2011.
Takeoff started rapping in 2008, along with Quavo and Offset, who are also family members. The group’s original stage name was Polo Club, but they eventually switched to Migos. On August 25, 2011, the group released Juug Season, a mixtape, which served as their first full-length project. Then, on June 1, 2012, they released the mixtape No Label.
Following the 2013 release of their single “Versace,” Migos first gained notoriety. The song reached its top positions at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 31 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart after being remixed by Canadian rapper Drake.
Chris Brown, Young Thug, and Murda Beatz all had cameo performances on their debut studio album, Yung Rich Nation, which was released in July 2015. The album’s position on the Billboard 200 peaked at number 17.
“Bad and Boujee,” a song by Migos featuring Lil Uzi Vert that peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 during the week of January 21, 2017, became the group’s first number-one single of 2016. The Recording Industry Association of America later awarded the song a platinum certification, making it four times platinum (RIAA). Takeoff is neither featured on the song nor given credit for it, despite the fact that he can be seen in one of the music video’s background sequences.
According to Akeoff, he was preoccupied during the recording of the song and hence was not included in it. He was asked about his absence by hosts Joe Budden and DJ Akademiks during filming of Complex’s Everyday Struggle at the 2017 BET Awards, to which he responded, “Do it look like I’m leaving off “Bad and Boujee”?” Budden left the set in response to Takeoff, and security intervened to prevent an incident between Migos and Budden and their entourages.
Culture, the second studio album from Migos, was released on January 27, 2017, and it debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 44,000 copies in its first week and moving 131,000 album-equivalent units. In July 2017, the album received a platinum certification in the nation.
Culture II, the group’s second album, was released on January 26, 2018. It was the second album by Migos to debut at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 38,000 copies in its first week and moving 199,000 equivalent units.
