Back in May, Quality Control co-founder Pierre "P" Thomas spoke highly of Takeoff’s low-key persona and effortless talents, tweeting, “Takeoff so underrated. If he cared more about this rap game he would definitely be stepping on y'all n***** but unfortunately he don't gaf. Been like that since he [sic] first met him. Nothing has changed with him."

Takeoff’s lawyer, Drew Findling, also penned a message following the rapper’s death, writing, "Takeoff was not only a brilliant musical artist with unlimited talent but also a uniquely kind and gentle soul. He will be greatly missed now and always.” The Hip-Hop community flooded social media with their thoughts and well wishes to Takeoff’s family and group members.
