Later this week, Takeoff’s burial will allegedly feature a performance by Justin Bieber at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena.
Bieber will perform on stage at the Migos rapper’s funeral ceremony on Friday, according to TMZ (November 11). Only Georgians can purchase tickets for the event through Ticketmaster.
Justin Bieber will probably be one of many famous people at the event, despite the fact that specifics regarding his performance are still scant. The Canadian vocalist doesn’t have any recordings with Takeoff by himself, although he collaborated with the group on “Looking For You” from 2014 and “What You See” from Culture III.
Reverend Jesse Curney III of New Mercies Christian Church will preside over Takeoff’s ceremony in the 20,000-seat arena, which will start promptly at 12:00 pm ET, according to Atlanta radio station V-103.
“I was really sad to hear the news,” he said in a statement. “Kirsnick has been a faithful member since he was 10 years old. He and his family were active and avid supporters of the church and the community as a whole.”
In the early hours of November 1, Takeoff was shot then died in Houston, Texas.
“Shortly after 2:30 a.m.” a shooting was reported at a nearby bowling alley where a dice game had been going on. Shots were reportedly fired during a dispute, fatally injuring Takeoff.
According to Takeoff’s autopsy report, the Migos member passed away from “penetrating gunshot wounds of the head and torso into arm,” according to the Harris County Medical Examiner. There have been no detentions.
Over the weekend, Takeoff’s close relatives and friends held a candlelight vigil for the rapper during a modest memorial ceremony held in Atlanta. Graffiti artist Armondo “Ape” Monoletti also painted a sizable mural in Takeoff’s hometown as a way of recognizing him.
