Quavo is immortalizing his musical collaborator and nephew, Take Off, with new songs just months after his death.
Takeoff, born Kirsnik Khari Ball, died on November 1 when more than 30 people left a private party at a bowling center in Houston after being shot in the head and back. Police said the shooting followed a disagreement over a “favorable” game of dice, but that the takeoff was not involved and was an “innocent bystander.”
Police have arrested a suspect, Patrick Xavier Clark, on suspicion of murder in connection with the December 1 shooting. He was released from Harris County Jail on his $1 million bond on Tuesday, according to court records. His attorney, Laetitia Quinones, said Clark had “a valid and worthy argument for self-defense.”
Takeoff’s death at the age of 28 came as a shock to the music world and those closest to him. His fellow Migos his members Offset and Quavo remembered the group’s youngest member as “Angel”.
In a heartfelt post after Takeoff’s memorial service in Atlanta on November 11, Cuavo recalled his childhood memories of collecting WWE action figures and recalled Takeoff’s passion for music. .
“Dear Take, it’s so hard to say I miss you because you were always with me and we did everything together,” Cuavo wrote on Instagram. “Ever since I was a child, you were by my side looking up at me.”
On Wednesday, Quavo remembered Takeoff with a new song, “Without You,” featuring Vory. He shared the song on Instagram, writing, “Long Live Take Infinity.”
Here is a lyric excerpt from the emotional song:
Go out into the galaxy, into the stars
Larger than Mars in the universe
See you in heaven See you in heaven
When I see you in heaven, I’ll be with my dog
I know if I’m the same without you
no gang without you
birthdays are not the same without you
Christmas ain’t the same without you
I stand for your name when it’s your game
I wouldn’t have gotten out of the mud without you
