The shooting happened outside a bowling alley earlier this month on November 1 – sending shockwaves through the music industry.
Paying tribute today was One Dance rapper Drake who reportedly performed a poem he had penned for the pal he “loved”.
Justin Bieber also apparently took to the stage to perform an acoustic version of Ghost before Drake and Offset ‘broke down crying’.
One attendee Tweeted: Takeoff’s funeral service at State Farm Arena was great! I loved seeing his mom, Quavo, Offset & more speak.
“Justin Bieber, Chloe Bailey and others had amazing performances too. I’m grateful to have been there. I’ve loved Takeoff/Migos’ music since 2013. RIP to an ATL legend.”
