Offset delayed the release of his second solo studio album following the death of his cousin and former Migos bandmate Takeoff.
As HipHop DX reports, a member of the fan page recently reached out to Offset via DM on social media to ask if the record would still arrive today (Friday, November 11) as planned.
The fan admitted that the project is probably the “last thing on his mind” given recent events. In response, Offset wrote, “It’s not late.” He did not offer any additional information about when the ‘Father Of 4’ sequel might come out.
According to The Source, Offset tweeted “11/11/22” followed by the word “ALBUM” in September. He shared the single ‘CODE’ (featuring Moneybagg Yo) and the Baby Keem song ‘5 4 3 2 1’ in August.
Takeoff, whose real name was Kirsnick Khari Ball, was shot to death at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas, early on November 1. I was 28 years old.
Offset has yet to publicly comment on the tragedy, but he did change his Instagram avatar to a photo of Takeoff.
Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Takeoff’s funeral was taking place today (November 11) at the 21,000 capacity State Farm Arena in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It has since been reported that Justin Bieber will perform at the ceremony.
Drake, for his part, has rescheduled his planned intimate performance for the night in New York to attend the service.
The ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ star praised Takeoff during the opening segment of his Table For One radio show on SiriusXM last week (November 3).
“Before I go into courtesies, I want to express our heartfelt condolences to the entire family [el sello discográfico de Migos, Quality Control Music]to our brother Quavo, to our brother Offset, to the friends and family of the legendary and unseen Takeoff – a man I’ve known for a long time,” Drake began.
Other artists who have paid tribute to Takeoff include Beyoncé, Dave, Tyler, The Creator, 50 Cent, and Rick Ross.
