In the rap group Migos, Takeoff was regarded as the laid-back member. When it came to lyrical artistry though, he went hard every time. Between Quavo’s flashy persona and Offset’s popularity, Takeoff seemed to be the trio’s equalizer.

Takeoff was known as someone who always had wise words and would drop many gems on and off the track. As we memorialize the lyrical acrobat on the day he is laid to rest, it’s fitting that MADAMENOIRE remembers a few memorable quotes from the legendary artist that will live on forever.
