Justin Bieber will reportedly ‘perform at Migos rapper Takeoff’s funeral’.
Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, died last week aged just 28 after a shooting outside a bowling alley in Houston, Texas.
He was gunned down following an altercation outside the venue and was thought to have been stood with bandmate and real-life uncle, Quavo.
Now, plans are beginning to roll out for the much-loved musician’s memorial – with a giant ceremony reportedly planned for this Friday.
The ceremony is thought to be taking place a State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia where the band’s pal Justin is reportedly performing.
It’s big enough to hold more than 20,000 people and the ceremony is reportedly scheduled to take place at around 12pm local time.
According to TMZ, sources familiar with the situation told the outlet that Justin is set to hit the stage, but they’re unsure how long his set will be or what exactly he might be performing.
“We do know he’ll be there and mic’d up to sing,” they reported.
The Baby hitmaker has collaborated with Migos before in the past for songs such as What You See and Looking For You, plus another track with Quavo.
Justin is yet to post a tribute to Takeoff on his social media, but TMZ reckons that him performing as his memorial is “the ultimate way to honour the late rapper”.
They’re also reporting that “all phones are going to be confiscated from anyone attending”.
The Mirror has contacted Justin’s representatives for a comment.
The news comes following Takeoff’s tragic death last Tuesday (November 1).
Footage of Quavo trying to help his bandmate has been seen by TMZ, with the heartbroken star calling for help as his nephew lies on the ground fatally wounded.
Takeoff is best known as the member of hip hop group Migos along with his uncle Quavo and first cousin once removed Offset, who is married to Cardi B.
Rapper Kirshnik was born in Lawrenceville, Georgia and raised by his mother, along with family members Quavo and Offset.
He started rapping in 2008 and he went on to release his first mixtape with Migos in 2011.
Two years later, the band rose to prominence with their single Versace and their debut solo album Yung Rich Nation was released in 2015.
A year later, Migos struck gold with their single Bad and Boujee. The song soared to number one and went on to be certified four times platinum.
The band released their second album in 2017, with it debuting at number one on the Billboard Us 200.
Culture II was released a year later and became Migos’ second album to debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200, moving 199,000 equivalent units, including 38,000 copies sold, in its first week of release.
