Quavo broke his silence on Takeoff’s death with a heartfelt message to his “angel” on Saturday.
“It’s so hard to tell you Ima miss you because you always with me and we did everything together,” the “Bad and Boujee rapper, 31, began in a lengthy note to his nephew “Take” on Instagram, in which he reflected on their lives together.
“Since we were kids you been by my side lookin up at me, them eyes waiting on me to make the next move.”
Quavo shared that he and Takeoff’s first dream was to be pro-wrestling “tag partners” on WWE before they formed the rap group Migos alongside Offset.
The “Walk It Talk It” rapper also reminisced on how “unbothered” Takeoff used to be, stating he “never got mad” and “never raised his voice.”
“He silenced the room because what Take said was law,” Quavo added before noting that his now-deceased relative was by far the “funniest person in the room.”
The “Open It Up” rapper also spoke of Takeoff’s “real passion” for music, his “style and swag,” and how he always put family first.
“This whole time I’ve been trying to figure out what you really are to me because nephew ain’t it,” Quavo said. “… Now I finally get it … you are OUR angel watching me and watching us this whole time in living form.”
The “Hotel Lobby” rapper said he was “proud” to have witnessed his loved one’s blessings before he passed.
He concluded by saying, “Me and u knew we gon always be with each other for life and jus like now we gon see each other again. I love you with all my heart,” and asking for Takeoff to ask God to reunite them one day.
Quavo was present when Takeoff was shot dead outside of a bowling alley in Houston on Nov. 1.
The exact reason for the shootout is still unknown, but video of Quavo arguing in the moments leading up to the fatal incident recently surfaced online.
Takeoff’s killer has not been arrested, and while police conduct their investigation, the late rapper’s family, friends and fans have begun to mourn his death.
Cardi B shared in a post on Instagram Friday that the remaining members of Migos feel an “emptiness” over the death of their groupmate.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper pleaded, “I pray that you give Offset ,Quavo, and your friends and family the strength to keep going as they are trying to cope with this loss.”
