Takeoff's tragic death came hours after the 28-year-old dropped a new music video for the hit single, "Messy," alongside his uncle, Quavo, which seemingly hinted at the alleged reason why Migos parted ways.
The demise of the renowned rap group began in May after Cardi B and Offset unfollowed both Takeoff and Quavo on Instagram.
Not long after the public moment of separation, Quavo and Takeoff stemmed into musical duo "Unc & Phew," while Offset announced the release of a solo project.
In August, rumors that the Migos members had reached their breaking point continued to soar after social media users slammed accusations toward Cardi B's husband, Offset, for allegedly sleeping with Quavo's girlfriend at the time, "Tap In" rapper Saweetie.
The "WAP" vocalist was outraged by claims of infidelity within her marriage after a Twitter user wrote at the time, "I’m still gaggin [sic] at you blatantly lying about OFFSET FCKN [sic] SAWEETIE."
Cardi B clapped back and denied any possibility Offset had slept within another woman, stating, "no baby you lying! You making crazy lies starting s**t and putting female rappers in it WIT [sic] NO RECEIPTS."
While the trio never name-dropped one another when referencing their broken family, Quavo seemingly shaded the situation when he and Takeoff guest starred on a podcast episode of "Big Facts" on Thursday, October 6.

“We want to see our career as a duo," Quavo explained of he and his nephew's career ventures. "We came from a loyal family that’s supposed to work together and you’re supposed to stick together, but sometimes when s**t don’t work out, it’s not meant to be.”
"We stand on loyalty and sometimes that s**t ain’t displayed," the award-winning artist continued of Offset's alleged affair. "Right now we gon’ be the duo till time tell."
“I’ma say, uh, I’ma say Nicki,” said Quavo, to which Takeoff quickly agreed, stating, “I was [going to] say the same thing. That’s crazy.”
Quavo has yet to speak publicly on the death of Takeoff, while Offset changed his Instagram profile picture to a solo shot of the late rapper. For her part, Cardi B retweeted a video of the Migos trio speaking form the heart about family prior to parting ways.
