The funeral of Migos rapper Takeoff took place on Friday in the recently deceased artist's hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
Big crowds of people attended his funeral service at the State Farm Arena to offer their sympathies and pay respect to the hugely successful hip hop star.
Takeoff's family did not allow media into the funeral service and all recording devices like smartphones and cameras were confiscated from those who entered the servivce.
Some footage of the event, particularly from outside the venue, did make its way online from fans who snapped images outside the State Farm Arena.
A huge image of Takeoff was posted outside the venue adorned with the words 'Celebrating The Life of Takeoff.'
An image of the funeral program emerged on social media from hip hop influencer 'nuface,' who also posted a call for stop to the violence in the black community.
“Praying for the day when we say and agree that enough is enough,' he captioned the post.
'This black man reached heights no other could reach and wasn’t able to start a family because of senseless violence,' it said, 'I didn’t have to know him to feel this pain for our people ??️.”
Nuface also reported the events of the funeral service and the contributions of some of its famous attendees.
“I’ve been in State Farm Arena hundreds of times,I’ve never heard it this quiet.Prior to Offset,we were started off with a song from Justin Bieber and an emotional speech from Drake paraphrasing Maya Angelou…Quavo recalled getting in trouble listening to The Hot Boyz and his sister,mother of Takeoff taking it..They later won a talent show performing as The Hot Boyz #RIPTakeOff.”
Migos made the news earlier this year when Takeoff and Quavo chose to split from band member Offset.
Nevertheless, Offset and his wife Cardi B were in attendance at the service and the rapper is reported to be almost speechless after the loss of his groupmate and cousin.
Thoughts and prayers also flooded in on social media on the day, with Philly's Meek Mill posting his respects on Twitter despite the fact he couldn't make the funeral.
“Rip to TAKE OFF .. I barely believe in this shit we living in…. Prayers to your mother, family and the whole QC! You change to rules forsure my boy! and I apologize for missing your funeral, ima forever rep y’all boys!,' he tweeted.
Takeoff was fatally shot on November the 1st at a Bowling Alley in Houston, shocking the hip hop community.
