Takeoff helped change the rap game with hits like "Stir Fry" and "Walk It Talk It." As the youngest member of the hip-hop trio Migos, he was a man of few words off the stage, but in the studio, he dropped bars.
Kirshnik Khari Ball (professionally known as Takeoff) was not only the most chill member of Migos — he was a very skilled rapper, too.
In honor of his memory, let's "walk it like [we] talk it" down memory lane and remember some of his funniest internet moments.

1.When Migos joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke, the late-night host hilariously questioned why they had a bag full of cash and couldn't fathom how much was there. Takeoff answered with one of his famous short-but-sweet responses.
2.When James asked each Migos member what their favorite ad-lib was, Takeoff had the best answer.
3.When James turned on Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," Migos went wild. Takeoff lived his best life and hit multiple famous dances while singing at the top of his lungs.
4.When James tried to add new instruments to Migos's "Walk It," Takeoff's facial expressions of disapproval said everything we were thinking about James' silly ideas.
Seriously, look at Offset and Takeoff with the "we don't have time for these shenanigans" faces.

5.When Quavo and Takeoff went Sneaker Shopping with Complex’s Joe La Puma at Stadium Goods in New York City, 28-year-old Takeoff tried to explain why he couldn't buy 1985 Air Jordans when they first dropped 37 years ago, and Quavo called him out.

6.When Migos visited The Breakfast Club to discuss their album, Culture II, host Charlamagne Tha God claimed Nicki Minaj couldn't understand Takeoff's verse on the song "Motorsport" featuring her and Cardi B. Takeoff answered "in ad-lib," but it was the Office-style glance at the camera that sold it.
7.When host Angela Yee inquired about Takeoff's upcoming solo project, The Last Rocket, and he responded with a signature ad-lib. The room couldn't handle it.

8.The music video for Migos's "Walk It Talk It" featuring Drake was funny from start to finish, but Takeoff in that huge blond afro with a tiny blue pick and a powder blue suit was classic.
