The GTA Online Community Unites to Pay Tribute in Takeoff Firegame


The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) online community joined in giving rapper Migos Kirshnik “Takeoff” a special send off by hosting an online funeral in-game. The funeral included a procession, service and even an afterparty in honor of the late rapper.

For those unaware, Takeoff tragically passed away after being shot multiple times in the chest and head on November 1 at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas. He was notable for being part of the musical trio known as the Migos, which included two other rappers – Quavo and Offset.

Since his tragic passing, several artists and celebrities have come forward to pay their respects. However, since fans are not allowed to attend his funeral, GTA players decided to create their own ceremony for the late Takeoff.
