Offset still struggling to talk about late Migos member Takeoff

Takeoff was shot and killed back in November 2022.

Months after Takeoff was shot and killed, Offset says he’s still finding it difficult to talk about his former Migos bandmate.

In an interview with Variety, the 31-year-old says he gets through the day by telling himself that everything that’s happened is fake.

“It’s hard for me to talk about s--- right now. I’ve never talked about this stuff. Seriously,” said Offset.

“Talking about Take is hard, man. Talking about all this s--- is hard. That’s why I don’t, to be honest. That s--- hurts. Like, it’s gonna put me in a mood, and I don’t want to get in that mood.”

“Some things I don’t ever tell nobody. He’s not here. That s--- feels fake, bro. I get through my day thinking it’s fake. And I don’t say nothing to nobody about it.”

Takeoff (real name Kirsnick Khari Ball) was shot and killed outside a Houston bowling alley back on November 1.

The pair, along with Takeoff’s uncle Quavo, released a trio of albums together as the group Migos, including ‘Culture’ and ‘Culture II’.

Quavo and Takeoff announced they would be making a project without Offset in May 2022, with Offset filing a suit in August against his record label over ownership of his solo music.

Nevertheless, Offset is still grieving Takeoff, and even showed off a back tattoo he got of his fallen band member’s face.

“It’s my favorite picture of him,” Offset stated. “I like because he had his glasses off.”

Offset shared emotional letter after Takeoff’s passing

After Takeoff’s death back in November, Offset shared an emotional letter on Instagram in which he talked about the pain the tragedy has caused him.

“My heart is shattered and I have so many things to say, but I can’t find the words,” he wrote.

“I’ve been going to sleep and hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.

“I wish I could hug you one last time. Laugh one last time. Smoke one [sic] last time. Perform one last time.

“I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven now. I hope you can see how much we love you and miss you. You have left a hole in my heart that will never be filled.”
