Quavo and Offset have put whatever differences they may have had between them to reunite for a special tribute performance in honor of Takeoff at the 2023 BET Awards.
The Migos members surprised the audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the 2023 BET Awards Sunday night (Jun. 25), joining forces to pay tribute to Takeoff, who was fatally shot last year. The show marked their first time performing together since the tragic shooting.
Viewers at home and in the crowd returned from a commercial break to a dimly lit stage with two figures dressed in black appearing on either side of a spotlight in the center of the stage. A recording of Takeoff’s verse on the song “Hotel Lobby” begins as a symbolic rocket ship ascends from the stage.
Quavo and Offset rap along to Takeoff’s verse before the rocket symbolically blasts off to be replaced by an image of the late rapper.
“We doing this for Take!” Offset yelled before Quavo added, “If you ready to do it for The Rocket let me get a YESSIR!”
