Kirshnik Khari Ball aka Takeoff started rapping in 2008, along with Quavo and Offset, who are also family members. The group’s original stage name was Polo Club, but they eventually switched to Migos. On August 25, 2011, the group released Juug Season, a mixtape, which served as their first full-length project. Then, on June 1, 2012, they released the mixtape No Label.
Following the 2013 release of their single “Versace,” Migos first gained notoriety. The song reached its top positions at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 31 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart after being remixed by Canadian rapper Drake.
Chris Brown, Young Thug, and Murda Beatz all had cameo performances on their debut studio album, Yung Rich Nation, which was released in July 2015. The album’s position on the Billboard 200 peaked at number 17.
“Bad and Boujee,” a song by Migos featuring Lil Uzi Vert that peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 during the week of January 21, 2017, became the group’s first number-one single of 2016. The Recording Industry Association of America later awarded the song a platinum certification, making it four times platinum (RIAA). Takeoff is neither featured on the song nor given credit for it, despite the fact that he can be seen in one of the music video’s background sequences. Takeoff has stated that he was preoccupied during the time of recording and so was not included in the song.
During the taping of Complex’s Everyday Struggle at the 2017 BET Awards on June 24, he was questioned by hosts Joe Budden and DJ Akademiks about his absence.

- Takeoff Legal Issue
The 2015 Spring Concert at Hanner Fieldhouse at Georgia Southern University was set to feature Migos as the headlining act on April 18, 2015. Local opening artists kicked off the performance at 7:00 pm, but the band didn’t take the stage until about an hour and a half after their stated set time of 9:00 pm. The ensemble performed for less than 30 minutes before departing the stage, despite their performance contract calling for a minimum 45-minute set.
In order to provide security for the concert, the University Police Department, the Statesboro Police Department, and the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office were present. When they smelled marijuana coming from the group’s vans, they interrogated the drivers.
Further investigation led to the arrest of the rap group along with 12 members of their group for possession of marijuana and another controlled substance, possession of a firearm in a school safety zone, possession of a handgun while committing a crime, and felon in possession of a firearm.
The student body chose the group to play among seven acts that were up for consideration, and student fees and ticket sales were used to pay for the event, despite the fact that university officials were aware of the group’s reputation. The ensemble was expected to get $30,000 under the terms of the performance contract, plus another $3,000 for its promoter, Big House Collective.
Due to the group’s tardy entrance, truncated performance, and possession of illegal substances on university grounds, university officials first sought to declare Migos in breach of the contract; nonetheless, the institution ultimately paid half of the agreed-upon fees.
The Bulloch County District Attorney’s Office freed Takeoff, Quavo, and six other people in their group on bail on April 20, 2015, however Offset and six other people were still being held without bond. On April 28, 2015, Migos declared they would postpone their Yung Rich Nation Tour until July as a result of their arrests.
