Buddah Bless, the American record producer behind some of the biggest hits in hip-hop such as Travis Scott & Young Thug’s ‘Out West’, Pop Smoke’s ‘Snitching’ featuring Quavo and Future, Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘Million Dollar Play’ and Migos’ ‘Need it’ and ‘Bad Bitches Only’, has announced his retirement from a highly successful hip-hop career.
A frequent collaborator with ‘Migos’ – the rap-trio consisting of Offset, the late Take-Off and Quavo – Bless made the announcement amidst the killing of the group’s former emcee.
“Y’all took Take from me? From Us? I’m cashing my chips… I RETIRE. Y’all take all the fun out this shit. the prosperity” Buddah wrote on his Instagram after it was revealed that Take-off has been fatally shot. The rapper shortly died after. He was 28.
After a hiatus from Migos, Take-off & Quavo released their debut collaborative project ‘Only Built for Infinity Links’ – a star studded record inspired from Raekwon’s 1995 record ‘Only Built 4 Infinity Linx’. Buddah had produced ‘Bars Into Captions’ and ‘Two Infinity Links’ on the album.
The Hip-Hop world is still mourning the death of modern rap’s pioneer after TMZ reported that he was shot during a scuffle over a dice game in Houston.

Rest in Peace, Take-off.
