Quavo and Offset Reunite To Honor Fallen Migos Rapper, Takeoff
Migos rappers Quavo and Offset reunited for the first time since the death of their fallen brother and bandmate, Takeoff, who died on November 1st of last year.

However, it looks like the pair have squashed the beef as they recently celebrated Takeoff’s birthday together in addition to last night’s tribute on the BET Awards.
Following a tribute to Busta Rhymes with heartfelt words from Diddy, Pharrell, Janet Jackson, Missy Elliott, Dave Chappelle, Mariah Carey, and June Ambrose, Busta teared up after he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Swizz Beatz and Marlon Wayans. Busta said he’s “grateful for the blessing that has been bestowed” upon him, thanked all of his kids, and called for more unity amongst hip-hop artists. Alongside his longtime right-hand man, Spliff, Busta performed a melody of some of his biggest hits such as “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See,”“Ante Up,” “Gimme Some More,” just to name a few. Remy Ma, M.O.P., Swizz Beatz, Rah Digga, and Coi Leray also paid tribute with performances.
