The Atlanta native took to his Instagram on Sunday, Takeoff’s birthday, with a series of posts showing himself and his former group mate in better times. In his caption, Set wished Take a happy birthday and called him “the greatest to touch a mic,” as he’s done in previous tributes.
“Happy birthday rocket man,” he wrote under the touching post. “The greatest to touch a mic!! best spirit ever!! purest man I know your heart was golden bring me peace bra we celebrate your life because you still right here I love you gang.”
Quavo also shared a post in tribute to Takeoff, who was also his nephew. For his post, Quavo uploaded a video of himself and Takeoff going through clothes while wishing his group mate a happy birthday.
“Happy Birthday @yrntakeoff can’t wait for days like this again!!!” he captioned the video. “BEST believe we goin up all week the Rocket way GEEKD u 29 n***a.”
The series of tributes are the latest out of a bunch that arrived following Takeoff’s death on November 2022. The rapper was shot and killed in front of a bowling alley in downtown Houston, Texas.
In May, a grand jury formally indicted suspect Patrick Xavier Clark for murdering Takeoff. Police arrested him in December 2022 after identifying his fingerprints on a wine bottle left at the scene.
Detectives concluded Clark's gunfire killed the rapper from the "direction" he was seen firing his gun during the scuffle outside the bowling alley that was captured on surveillance video, according to a search warrant.
