Rapper Offset has said he’s “in a dark place” a month after the death of Migos bandmate Takeoff.
Takeoff was shot dead in Houston, Texas on November 1. Police were called to a Houston bowling alley where a private party was taking place in the early hours of the morning.
Unfortunately, the 28-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
Takeoff and Offset were in the musical trio Migos along with Takeoff’s uncle Quavo, who was present at the time of Takeoff’s death. Quavo is Offset’s cousin.
On Thursday (December 8), Offset tweeted a middle finger emoji.
“In a dark place,” he wrote.
Since his bandmate’s death, Offset has tweeted several images and videos in honor of TakeOff.
On November 21, he shared his first Twitter post since the tragedy, tweeting a photo of Takeoff with the caption, “Love you so much.”
A week later, he posted an artwork by his bandmate and wrote, “Missing you BH, trying to walk through the pain.”
After his last tweet, the rapper’s followers sent their love to the artist. Although the post wasn’t directly related to Takeoff, fans seem to think the ailments are related to his grief.
“You got that offset,” wrote one supportive fan. “Takeoff is blaring in the sky waiting for you guys to drop some bangers and make sure you keep his legacy alive…in your hearts and minds…and his voice through.” let the words of your music speak!”
“Try to use the happy memories you have to get through it. He was a lovely man. Help his legacy shine. Sending love to you and your family from England,” commented another.
“Sorry brother I know life will never be the same without takeoff, success won’t be so sweet I’m sure… but time heals, time makes the heart grow bigger and warmer” said one follower. “Lay into all emotions and know that you will all meet again, but know that the marathon must go on.”
Many of Offset’s followers have shown their support by referring to their own grief and admitting they know how the rapper feels.
“Off, it’s okay to be in a dark place. That was me when I lost my little brother at 26,” wrote one commenter. “It was a terrible loss, but knowing that I will see him again fuels me every day, not to mention the strength that God has given me. Heads up.”
