Offset has broken his social media silence on the death of Takeoff, a member of the platinum-selling rap group Migos.
On Tuesday, Offset posted a note on his verified Instagram account, addressed to Takeoff, in which he wrote, “the pain you’ve left me with is unbearable.”
“My heart is broken and I have so much to say but I can’t find the words,” she wrote. “I’ve gone to sleep and woke up hoping it was all a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.”
Takeoff was shot and killed earlier this month in Houston, Texas, authorities said. He was 28 years old.
Takeoff, along with his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset, had been members of the rap trio.
The three were no longer acting together.
Offset had gone solo and Quavo along with Takeoff had recently formed the duo “Unc & Phew” and released their debut album, “Only Built for Infinity Links” on October 7th.
Offset spoke emotionally at Takeoff’s recent memorial, held at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, but it was not televised. He had not made any statement publicly on social media.
Offset wrote that he wished he could hug Takeoff “one last time” and “laugh one last time.” Smoke one last time. Act one last time.”
“I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven now,” Offset wrote. “I hope you can see how much we love and miss you.”
The post, accompanied by photos and videos, comes after Quavo and Offset’s wife Cardi B also posted tributes to Takeoff.
