Quavo and Offset shocked the music world at the 2023 BET Awards in Los Angeles, California, with a reunion during a tribute to the late Takeoff.
On Sunday (June 25), Cardi took to Instagram, where she recorded the Migos’ special performance and gave a genuine reaction to the unexpected development.
The Bronx native yelled with glee at her television screen, continuously shouting “Yeah!” before admitting she was ready to shed a tear. “I’m ’bouta cry, I’m really bouta cry,” she said. “I know [Quavo and Offset] wanna cry.” Cardi also hit Twitter to share her love for her hubby and extended family burying the hatchet. “I can’t take it right now… proud of the boys,” she affectionately tweeted.
Quavo and Offset honored Take at the 2023 BET Awards at the Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater, their first performance since the latter’s untimely death. The emotional homage saw the pair showing love to the rapper, né Kirshnik Khari Ball, with a rocket silhouette glowing in the screen behind them while rapping to “Hotel Lobby.” Then, as the clouds turned purple, the rocket took off into the sky as they began performing their 2016 hit song, “Bad and Boujee.”

Their BET Awards appearance arrived on the heels of the pair squashing their beef to celebrate Take’s birthday on Sunday (June 18). According to TMZ, the Migos were in Atlanta, joining family and friends to honor Ball’s life.
A picture of the reunion circulated on social media showing the once-estranged bandmates in the middle of a conversation. Another picture showed Qua and Set posing with family, wearing clothing commemorating “the Last Rocket.”
Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball, was slain after being gunned down in November 2022 in Houston. The 28-year-old was standing outside of a bowling and billiards venue when an alleged dispute over a dice game escalated into a shootout.
