Drake, DJ Khaled and other international stars react to Takeoff’s death

Tributes have been pouring in from celebrities across the world since news broke on Tuesday, November 1, that Takeoff had been shot and killed.

According to multiple sources, Takeoff was killed after an altercation broke out during a game of dice outside a Houston bowling alley.

The 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, was with close collaborator Quavo, who’s also his uncle, during the shooting.

In one of several videos circulating online of the incident, Quavo is seen apparently arguing with someone about basketball before he attempts to walk away. A few moments later, several shots ring out off camera.

Here are some of the celebrity reactions since his death:

Canadian rapper Drake took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late Migos star: “Got the best memories of all of us seeing the world together and bringing light to every city we touch. That's what l'Il focus on for now 😔 rest easy space man Take🚀”
