As the coveted BET award show went down earlier today, various Hip-Hop superstars performed some of their biggest rap records during the Los Angeles ceremony. Performing live at the Microsoft Theatre, Atlanta’s Hip-Hop pioneers Quavo and Offset delivered a surprise performance that no one saw coming.
The “Rap Saved Me” emcees, who reportedly cut ties due to personal altercations and went further to announce solo studio albums last year, reunited for the first time since Takeoff died in Houston on November 1, 2022.
While Quavo and Offset haven’t commented on what exactly it means for ‘The Migos’ legacy, it does send a powerful message for “love & unity” in rap music – something that this year’s BET Lifetime Achievement Award Honoree Busta Rhymes prophesized during his historic speech.
Surrounded by marquee L.A. dancers and flames, Quavo and Offset remembered Takeoff and performed the Migos’ iconic rap record “Bad n Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert.
Check out the performance here if you haven’t yet.
The hard-hitting Migos rapper Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball was shot dead in Houston at just 28 years of age. The pioneering emcee, who rose to prominence for his distinct choppa flow and incendiary lyricism was killed amidst a “dice game” at 810 Billiards & Bowling on November 1, 2022 – days after he released his joint LP “Only Built For Infinity Linx” with Quavo.
Along with Quavo and Offset, Takeoff made his global breakthrough with the hit rap single “Versace”. Reportedly, the “Juug Season” rapper was the founding member of Migos. However, he often remained elusive from the press despite the global recognition that he achieved over the years.
Rest in Peace, Kirshnik Khari Ball.
