In addition to that, he was nominated for two Grammy Awards. Takeoff was slain in Houston, Texas, on November 1st, 2022, after being shot there.
Initial Stages of Life and Education
Kirshnik Khari Ball was born on the 18th of June, 1994, in Lawrenceville, Georgia. His mother, along with other family members Quavo and Offset, was responsible for his upbringing.
Takeoff was one of three members of the same family to start rapping in 2008, the others being Quavo and Offset. After a while, the band decided to alter its name to Migos, although they had originally performed under the stage name Polo Club.
Takeoff’s Net Worth
Takeoff was an American rapper who, at the time of his passing, had a net worth that was estimated to be $26 million. Takeoff’s tragic death occurred on November 1, 2022, when he was 28 years old. He was murdered. Takeoff’s most notable accomplishment was his membership in the hip-hop group Migos, of which he was a member.
Quavo and Offset, who make up the other two members of the group, are respectively his uncle and cousin. “Versace,” “Bad and Boujee,” “MotorSport,” and “Stir Fry” are just a few of the band’s many chart-topping singles.
At 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston, Texas, on November 1, 2022, Takeoff was attacked with three gunshot wounds to the head and torso, and he succumbed to his injuries at the scene. According to KHOU-11 TV in Houston, after a private party had concluded at the bowling alley at approximately 1:00 a.m. CDT, he and approximately 40 other people congregated outside the alley.
Although Takeoff’s uncle and fellow Migos member Quavo was present during the shooting, he was not hurt in the incident. However, reports indicate that he passed out after the gunshot and had to be helped to a vehicle after recovering.
Takeoff had uploaded a video earlier in the evening that showed him and James Prince driving about Houston while James Prince celebrated his birthday. The footage was posted on Takeoff’s YouTube channel.
According to the reports, the fatal shooting was precipitated by an altercation that broke out following a game of dice. His record label stated in a statement that Takeoff was killed by a “stray bullet,” while the head of police in Houston stated that he did not believe Takeoff was the intended target of the shooting. Both of these statements were made public.
The Houston Police Department reported that a gunshot that resulted in death had occurred at 2:40 a.m. Central Daylight Time (CDT) and that the victim had been found dead upon arrival while two additional victims were “removed in private vehicles to hospitals.”
After further consideration, the department stated that “we are not disclosing an identification of the deceased victim until his family is notified and ID verification is completed by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.” It was later determined by the Houston police department that Takeoff had been killed in the incident.
During the incident, there were also two other persons who were injured, Joshua “Wash” Washington, 24, who is Quavo’s business associate, and a woman who is 23 years old. Both of these people sustained injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening.
