Offset continues to pay tribute to Migos rapper Takeoff

Offset is still “missing” Takeoff — three weeks after the rapper’s tragic death.

The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a photo of his late cousin wearing a grey suit jacket, floral shirt and diamond necklaces.

“Missing everything bout [sic] you specially [sic] that smile,” he captioned the post.

On Nov. 1, Takeoff — whose real name was Kirsnick Khari Ball — was shot and killed at a bowling alley in Houston after an altercation broke out and a gun went off.

Following his passing, a celebration of life was held in Atlanta and his former Migos bandmates — and family members — honored his lasting legacy.

The 30-year-old rapper paid tribute to his late cousin.

“I love you, dog,” Offset said at the event, adding, “I wish we could laugh again.”

A few days after the star-studded funeral, Offset took to social media to say that his “heart is shattered” and the pain is “unbearable.”

“I’ve been going to sleep and waking up hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare,” the “Bad and Boujee” rapper wrote on Instagram.

“I wish I could hug you one last time. Laugh one last time. Smoke one last time. Perform one last time,” he said, adding that he knows his cousin “is in heaven now.”

Prior to the heartfelt post, Offset subtly paid tribute to the rapper by changing his Instagram profile picture to one of the “MotorSport” rapper with a white heart emoji.

Takeoff and Offset formed the Grammy-nominated group back in 2008 with Quavo, who was at the scene when Takeoff died. He was luckily uninjured.

Although the three rappers had a falling out earlier this year, the family has seemingly put their differences aside to come together and mourn Takeoff’s death.

Quavo, who is Takeoff’s uncle, has yet to speak on the tragedy.
