Takeoff's primary cause of death was "penetrating gunshot wounds of head and torso into arm”

Takeoff's primary cause of death was "penetrating gunshot wounds of head and torso into arm”. (Read More Here).

A coroner report has revealed new details regarding the death of Migos rapper Takeoff.

On Wednesday (Nov. 2), the Harris County Medical Examiner in Texas has reportedly listed Takeoff's cause of death as the direct result of being shot multiple times on Nov. 1 following an altercation outside of 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston. According to TMZ, the medical examiner report includes information that Takeoff apparently suffered from "penetrating gunshot wounds of head and torso into his arm."


The Harris County Medical Examiner in Houston has released an official report to XXL regarding Takeoff's shooting death.

The report confirms the primary cause of death as "penetrating gunshot wound of head and torso into arm" outside of a business in Houston. The report also discloses that the medical examiner's office has not yet completed their report but Takeoff's body is ready for transport to a funeral home.



Takeoff's shooting death occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday when at least one person opened fire during the altercation outside the Houston bowling establishment. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Takeoff's uncle and fellow Migos member, Quavo, was present during the shooting but did not suffer any injuries. According to the Houston Police Department, two other individuals were shot during the altercation before being transported to the hospital in private vehicles to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries

The interview was with VladTV, conducted on the heels of Migos’ breakout hit “Versace” and rapturously received Y.R.N. mixtape – which also featured classics like “Hannah Montana” and “Adios” and dispelled any remaining “one-hit wonder” claims. From there the Migos became Atlanta rap icons, ascending to the pedestal where prior legends such as T.I., Gucci Mane, OutKast, Jeezy, Future and others perched. 

The VladTV chat isn’t a particularly revealing one, but it does reinforce one thing – Takeoff wasn’t interested in entertaining any extracurriculars, but rather comfortable sitting in the back, focused on the music.

Tragically, Takeoff’s bright future was cut short at 28 on Tuesday morning after being shot outside a Houston bowling alley, caught by a stray bullet that wasn’t intended for him. The mark Kirshnik Khari Ball made during his short time on earth was impressive: the silent engineer of the triplet flow mastered by the Migos, hits that defined the past decade like “Versace,” “T-Shirt” and “Fight Night,” and an overall cultural impact that made Migos a game-changing rap group, just like OutKast, Wu-Tang Clan, Dipset and others before them.

But the sad truth is Takeoff was just entering his prime, as evidenced by the excellent Only Built For Infinity Links, his recent team-up album with Quavo. While the latter became the de facto frontman for the Migos and an in-demand features artist, and Offset stole the headlines with his flashy personality and much-publicized marriage to Cardi B, Takeoff, the quiet one, stayed in the background. He was always in the studio, consistently improving his flow, wordplay and ad-libs, meticulously grinding to iron out the flaws in his work. The flamboyance of the Migos helped them stand out from the rest of the growing ATL trap scene at the dawn of the streaming age, but it was the technical prowess that put them over the top, a precision engineered and held down by Takeoff.

Migos’ biggest project commercially and best creatively, 2017’s Culture, feels like an album that Takeoff took the creative lead on – as opposed to the more bloated sequels Culture II and Culture III. It’s 13 tracks of bangers on bangers, slim with the fat cut off, no song wasted, meticulously curated to sound like the celebration of reaching the mountain top. For listeners of a certain age – particularly those who frequented house parties at colleges across America in the mid-late 2010s – it’s a staple of the time, a community driver turning any celebration into a wild night on the Atlanta strip. But most of all, it was inviting music that brought people together.
