During a recent appearance on “Ugly Money Podcast,” comedian Shawty Shawty revealed that Takeoff’s murder may have been caused by an argument over rigged dice.
“I have to say ‘alleged’ because I was told this over the phone from a reliable source…They say Quavo dominates in a whole lot of different things — basketball, all of this. So they say that they had been shooting basketball earlier and then they got to the bowling alley, and they said it was a dice game,” the “Wild ‘N Out” star said on the podcast.
He continued, “They say that Quavo noticed that the dice were not right and that’s where the argument started. Everybody know Quavo got a mouth on him, everybody know Quavo would talk junk. That ain’t got nothing to do with this man’s life. I don’t think that was the atmosphere to talk s**t in. I think they were on somebody’s tab and you gotta respect [that].”
Shawty Shawty also revealed that Takeoff’s death is an example of why he doesn’t do shows in certain neighborhoods. “God took you past that point, so you don’t fall backward,” he said. “I don’t do shows in certain hoods because I don’t want the same hood that I got out of [to] snatch me back.”
As previously reported by HOT 97, Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot and killed in Texas at a bowling alley called 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston in November of 2022. Police did confirm that the Migos rapper was killed following an altercation during a dice game, which resulted in someone opening fire. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Takeoff, who was only 28-years-old, is the nephew of Quavo, and cousin to Offset. In 2008, the trio came together and created their rap group Migos.
