QCM CEO Pierre “P” Thomas also took to social media to honor and pay tribute to Takeoff.
P addressed the senseless violence that plagues our community and he also asked people to mindful of the family as videos of the shooting aftermath have been spread all over the internet.
Young King @yrntakeoff I don’t know where to begin but I want to say that anybody that knows me knows how much I love you and anybody that knows you knows that you definitely didn’t deserve to die at such a young age.
We only get 1 life and once it’s gone it’s over, no coming back. So with that being said I want our community to remember that we don’t have to continue to result to violence every time there is a disagreement.
It’s ok to love your brother and sister. We all have been guilty of self hate but I pray this never ending cycle will some day change us all.
We have so many memories to keep your name alive.
As we mourn your lost I pray that everyone please be understanding to what the family has to see on the internet with the videos and negative comments.
This is somebody’s child. Let them get thru this process with peace and love.
You came from the stars so I know you will forever be up there watching down on all of us.
I will forever love you. ?
