Takeoff's "Casper" is a standout from his solo debut.


The person we perceived to be an isolationist with a reserved demeanor is the same Takeoff that showed up on The Last Rocket. Takeoff's debut is the type of worldbuilding experiment that isn't based on social interaction, but a devout understanding of his own need for introversion. On "Casper," the album's 8th song, he does make like a ghost, when in fact you may have thought he was only referencing the practice of exiting a moving vehicle, or an appreciable Rolls Royce sitting pretty under umbrage.

The need or demand for a solo Takeoff album was answered with veracity. Much of Migos' early output was driven by Takeoff's signature cadence, but when the group became a pop conglomerate, he sort of took a back seat. When Offset was imprisoned in 2013, it was Takeoff, not Quavo, that did most of the heavy lifting in his absence. "Casper" is essentially what it sets out to be: a prototype for future endeavors.

Quotable Lyrics:

Got gas but the tank on E 
No flash, but the ice on fleek 
Walkin' out with the bag and receipt
No clout, all facts when I speak 
White Wraith with the red and black seats 
Pullin' up like a falcon with me 
She gon' faint when she see the double R 
When she find out Casper with me.
