Offset lost a brother he'll never get to fix things with.
Quavo lost his nephew.
Rap lost a good one.

I was in college when Biggie and ‘Pac were killed and thought there was no way we’d ever experience anything remotely close to that again. Now it’s happening so frequently that you barely have time to recover before someone else killed. RIP Takeoff.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) November 1, 2022
