Comedian Shawty Shawty has alleged that Takeoff's shooting death was caused by an argument over loaded dice. During an appearance on the Ugly Money podcast, Shawty said, “I have to say ‘alleged’ because I was told this over the phone from a reliable source. They say Quavo dominates in a whole lot of different things — basketball, all of this. So they say that they had been shooting basketball earlier and then they got to the bowling alley, and they said it was a dice game.”
He continued, “They say that Quavo noticed that the dice were not right, and that’s where the argument started. Everybody know Quavo got a mouth on him, everybody know Quavo would talk junk. I don’t think that was the atmosphere to talk sh*t in. I think they were on somebody’s tab, and you gotta respect that.”
Takeoff was shot and killed on November 1st at a Houston bowling alley. He was 28 years old.
