The Migos reunited at the 2023 BET Awards Sunday night … but the trio was now a duo, and they honored their late bandmate, Takeoff, with an emotional performance that brought the house down.
Quavo and Offset surprised everyone when they hit the stage an hour into the event at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. to pay tribute to Takeoff, who, as you know, was fatally shot at a bowling alley last November. The alleged killer, Patrick Xavier Clark, was indicted last month for Takeoff’s murder.
Decked out in all-black leather, the two Migos kicked things off by diving into “Hotel Lobby,” a song produced by Quavo and Takeoff, as the crowd went wild.
Special effects sent the show to the outer limits with a spaceship appearing on a large screen, which eventually took off as flames shot up from the stage. A massive image of Takeoff then morphed onto the screen behind Quavo and Offset while they were singing and dancing.
The pair then cranked out the Migos biggest hit, “Bad and Boujee,” which rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard charts and was nominated for best rap performance at the 2018 Grammys.
By any musical standard, it was a memorable moment and the first time Quavo and Offset appeared onstage together since Takeoff’s death.
Question is … will Quavo and Offset carry on the Migos torch as a duo?
