Migos Rapper, Takeoff Shot Dead in Houston.

One of the three rappers who make up the US rap group, Migos, has been shot dead.

Takeoff was the third member of Migos alongside the rappers Quavo and Offset.

TMZ reports that the 28-year-old rapper whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, was fatally shot at a bowling alley in Houston where he and Quavo were playing dice at around 2.30am.

Reports state that Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene while two other people on the premises were shot and taken to hospital.

Takeoff was born in Lawrenceville, Georgia, in 1994. He began rapping with Quavo and Offset, his uncle and cousin, respectively, in 2008 under the collective name Polo Club. In 2011, the trio released Juug Season, their debut mixtape as Migos.

In 2013, Migos released Versace, their first mainstream hit. The song was notable for popularising the triplet flow – Migos’ signature rapid-fire cadence – within modern rap, and was eventually remixed by Toronto rapper Drake, who would go on to have a long-running association with all three members of the group.
