Offset thanked Calvin Harris for honoring Takeoff at Coachella this past weekend.

The Migos rapper took to his Instagram Story on Sunday, writing, “This so hard, man, thank you” atop a tweet about Harris’ performance of an unreleased version of his 2017 hit “Slide,” which featured a verse from Takeoff.

The original song, which appeared on Harris’ Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, included features from Frank Ocean and Migos, though only Offset and Quavo made appearances on the track.

In addition to Takeoff’s verse, Harris also cast an image of the late rapper on the screen behind him. Takeoff’s verse was taken from another Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 cut “Holiday,” which also features Snoop Dogg and John Legend, People points out.

Takeoff was fatally shot over five months ago outside of a bowling alley in Houston Texas. This past weekend, Offset commemorated Takeoff with an enormous back tattoo, which he shared on IG, alongside the caption, “Love you 4L & after.” The new ink shows the 28-year-old wearing a handful of gold chains and a zebra print shirt, backdropped by images of the solar system.

Numerous artists have paid tribute to Takeoff in recent months. Quavo dropped the song “Greatness” and “Without You,” while Gucci Mane shared the track “Letter to Takeoff.” The Migos rapper was also celebrated during the 2023 Grammy Awards, via an emotional performance from Quavo.
