Early Life and Career
Kirshnick Khari Ball, aka Takeoff, started creating rhythms and beats at an early age when he was in the 7th grade. He was always drawn to music. His family and friends realized his talent for music when he started performing at school and family gatherings.
He was approached by Quavious Keyate Marshal, his uncle, and Kiari Kendrell Cephus, his cousin. Both of them became very impressed by his talents, and they agreed to start a group together named “Polo Club.”
They released their first mixtape in 2011 by the name of Juug Season, which was not a huge hit. In 2012, they released another mixtape in June. The group changed its name to “Migos” at that time.
They released their first major hit in 2013, the name “Versace.” This helped them to get on top of the charts.
In 2015, Migos launched their first album titled “Yung Rich Nation,” which was their fourth project. This album featured guest appearances by some of the biggest names in the industry, like Young thug and Chris Brown. A total of 150,000 copies of this album were sold.
Takeoff released his first single in 2016 by the name of “Bad and Boujee” feat Lil Uzi Vert. The song skyrocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. This was Takeoff’s first song that was on top in the US.
The group released their third album named “Culture II” in 2017, which again featured big names like Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.
Their lead single, “Motorsport,” from the album went on to become a big hit, and it featured on the Billboard Hot 100 at number six. Another single from the album “stir fry” featured on number 8.
The same year, their album became number one on the Billboard 200.
In 2020, another album by the name of “Culture III” was supposed to be released. The album was delayed due to the 2020 pandemic.
Takeoff’s net worth is around $26 million. He earned his money with his group “Migos”. Their earnings were produced largely by their tours.
Between 2017 and 2018, the group reportedly performed more than 90 shows, and they were among the most popular streaming groups in a year with more than 4 billion streams. In 2017, the group earned more than $25 million.
In 2018, Migos reportedly earned more than $36 million.
Takeoff did not have a big collection of cars, but he had cars that were pristine and had high value.
Takeoff’s label “Quality Control Musin” gifted him a Rolls-Royce Wraith which cost $350,000.
He also had an Aston Martin Vanquish, which cost around $400,000.
Georgia Southern University Incident
On April 18, 2015, rap trio Migos were scheduled to headline Georgia Southern University’s Spring concert.
However, after their performance, which was less than half of their agreed-upon set length, University Police and the Statesboro Police Department detected a strong smell of marijuana from their vans, and the group was arrested.
The university initially tried to put Migos in breach of contract but ended up paying half the agreed-upon fee. After the incident, Migos announced that they would reschedule their Yung Rich Nation Tour to July.
Sexual assault allegations
In August 2020, Takeoff, a member of the hip-hop group Migos, was charged with sexual assault, assault, forcible confinement, gender-based assault, and trespass civilians by a female victim.
After an investigation, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office determined that there was insufficient evidence to file a criminal complaint. However, the civil lawsuit against Takeoff was still pending as of April 2021.
Takeoff’s Investment and Endorsements
Given the tremendous success the group has achieved, it’s no surprise they’ve secured multiple brand endorsement deals.
Since then, the trio has generated income from the group and individual transactions. They also have deals with Can-Am motorcycles and even launched the Can-Am Ryker trike in 2019.
Technically, investments are also a means of making money. Still, since it takes money and effort to make money with investments and business ventures, it is prudent to categorize investments as expenses before they become profitable business ventures.
Offset is a savvy investor and has invested in several brands such as streaming and production company AXSD Media, esports organization FaZe Clan, and some avatar technology companies called Genies.
Quavo is also big on investments as he even bought a minority stake in the sportswear brand called LEGENDS.

Takeoff received two Grammy nominations on January 29, 2018.

“You gotta watch everything. You gotta watch how you move, ’cause you a celebrity. You’re a target now, so you always gotta do that. Just stay on your tippy toes.” – Takeoff
“Growing up, I was trying to make it in music. I was grinding, which is just what I loved doing. I didn’t have anything else to do. In my spare time, I’d record myself. Find a beat, pulling them up. Just making something and creating for me.” – Takeoff
“We work pretty fast. I might be working, and I might knock out two, or three songs. Quavo might come in two, or three himself. Offset might come and do the same.” – Takeoff
“You gotta have fun with a song, make somebody laugh. You gotta have character. A hard punchline can make you laugh, but you gotta know how to say it.”– Takeoff
On November 1, 2022, Takeoff was shot and killed at 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston, Texas. Quavo had posted a video earlier in the evening showing him on a walk with Jas Prince Jr, who was celebrating his father’s birthday.
Takeoff was shot three times and pronounced dead upon arrival at the scene. Police said the takeoff was probably not the intended target.
A nurse who lived near the bowling alley ran to the scene and checked the rapper’s pulse, but it was too late. Takeoff’s record company later released a statement saying that “a stray bullet killed him”.
Takeoff is known for his crazy beats and he produced groovy music from scratch. He was extremely talented and a versatile performer who wore gender-appropriate looks with colorful glasses and lots of bling. As of January 2023, Takeoff’s net worth is estimated at $26 million.
