Over the years, Migos occasionally brushed aside split rumors. For instance, in 2018, false reports claimed that Takeoff was no longer a Migos member after failing to accompany Quavo and Offset to a couple of award shows. However, it turned out that Takeoff was working on a solo album, which he released in late 2018.
Unfortunately, Offset’s separation from Migos in 2022 seemed terminal. Fans on Twitter expressed concern that Takeoff passed away before reconciling with a cousin he considered a brother. @OhhMar24 tweeted:
“Takeoff passing away while him and Offset weren’t on good terms is the worse part of this. That’s going to haunt Offset for the rest of his life. Praying for all parties involved truly.”
Takeoff and Offset weren’t on good terms, but they hadn’t ruled out reconciliation
Rumors about Offset’s split from Migos emerged after fans noted that he and his wife, Cardi B, had unfollowed his bandmates. Furthermore, Offset didn’t post about an upcoming release by Quavo and Takeoff.
Offset joined Quavo and Takeoff when he was in sixth grade. Quavo told Fader that Offset had an excellent rap voice, but he needed to work on his lyrics – which he did. The trio formed a bond that propelled them to the top of the rap game.
However, after over a decade of togetherness, Offset left the group. During an interview on the Big Facts podcast, Quavo suggested that disloyalty caused the split:
“We came from a loyal family that’s supposed to work together and you’re supposed to stick together, but sometimes when shit don’t work out, it’s not meant to be. We stand on loyalty and sometimes that shit ain’t displayed.”
Unsubstantiated rumors claimed that Saweetie, Quavo’s ex, had cheated on him with Offset, leading to the band’s breakup. Takeoff commented on the split, saying the trio shared a robust familial bond. He said on the Big Facts podcast:
“We don’t know all the answers. God knows we pray a lot. We tell [God] whatever ain’t right, however you supposed to see it fit, you put it back together or however you do it. We pray, so only time will tell. We’re always family, ain’t nothing gone change.”
Takeoff expressed his love and appreciation for his bandmates during a 2017 interview with Fader:
“We don’t even think of each other as a group. I don’t think I’m in a group with two other guys, where I don’t know their moms and their grandmas, their aunties, and I don’t know where they came from. This is my immediate family. These are the only people I know. That’s why we be around each other so much. I don’t know nobody else.”
Judging from Takeoff’s comments, Migos would likely have reunited. Sadly, we’ll never see the brothers perform together again.
