Takeoff, with his uncle, Quavo, and cousin, Offset, set the music industry on fire with their hit tracks, MotorSport and Walk It Talk It, and the trio had a huge influence on modern-day rap style.

Takeoff is the youngest member of the rap group Migos, and the trio came into the public limelight with their song Versace in 2013. The three have been controversial figures in recent years with Takeoff even having a case of assault dropped against him in 2020.
