The rapper pays his respects once again.

Rich The Kid has posted another reminder of his friendship with slain rapper Takeoff. The two were extremely close friends and had even collaborated together. Last year, they released a song together called "Crypto." As one-third of Migos, Takeoff had experienced quite a bit of success in the industry before his untimely passing. His death sent shockwaves through the industry. Since the rapper's death, many have taken the time to remember him. Tragically, details have emerged that show that his death was likely entirely avoidable.

Takeoff was just 28 years old when he was shot and killed in Houston, Texas. He was apparently present for a game of dice with his brother and fellow Migos member, Quavo. During the game, a heated argument broke out. Comedian Shawty Shawty spoke to the rapper's cousins about the incident and provided more context. “Quavo dominates in a whole lot of things, basketball, all of this,” the comedian clarified “So, they say they had been shooting basketball earlier, and then they got to the bowling alley, and they said there was a dice game. And they say that Quavo noticed that the dice were not right, and that’s where the argument started.”

Takeoff Honored By His Friend And Collaborator

Rich The Kid has done quite a bit to pay tribute to his fallen friend. Shortly after Takeoff passed away, Rich posted a touching message to the rapper on his social media. “Today I lost more than a brother. My twin, my best friend, everything. I don’t wanna believe it, I can’t,” he said. “The most humble person I know. We used to share shoes [and] clothes before we made it with no problem! I miss you already. You didn’t deserve that! I can’t stop crying. I love you so much bro, forever.”

In January, Rich revealed that he had gotten a tattoo to honor Takeoff. Now, Rich has shared a video of a pendant he had made for the late rapper. The video shows a circular pendant surrounded by diamonds. In the middle is a rotating piece featuring pictures of Takeoff. The video is soundtracked by the pair's 2022 collaboration.
