There is no perspective that is the right perspective to look at things from when you experience the loss of life, especially when you love the life of the people we loose. This has completely shattered me because of my love for @yrntakeoff@quavohuncho@offsettyrn@qcmceo_p@coachk44 and the whole @migos&@qualitycontrolmusic families, friends and Movements. I can’t find the words that will be right enough to ease this pain because none can possibly imagine what they feel right now. Sending love and light to all of you and deepest condolences. King Takeoff, transition peacefully Beloved. You will be truly be missed. I’m sick and very angry right now typing this 🤬” wrote Busta Rhymes.
