Offset and Quavo have reunited for their first performance together since the death of Migos bandmate, Offset.

At the BET Music Awards 2023, the pair took the stage to honour the late rapper, who was shot and killed in Houston in November last year after an altercation over a game of dice at a private event. 

The surprise performance from the duo - who had reportedly been feuding since an alleged physical altercation at the 2023 Grammys - began when the two appeared on stage as a recording of Takeoff’s verse on the song Hotel Lobby began - a track from Quavo and Takeoff’s 2022 spin-off project Unc & Phew.

“BET!” the announcer shouted. “Doin’ this for Take!” as an image of the Space Shuttle took off and was replaced by a photo Takeoff as the pair launched into the group’s biggest hit, Bad & Boujee.

Following the hyped show, Offset wrote on Instagram, “Do this shit for the fam cuz this shit bigger than me,” while Quavo wrote “For the Rocket,” Takeoff’s nickname, alongside a snap of the pair over the years.

Offset's wife Cardi B also took to social media to commend the rappers on their show.

The reunion clearly had fans all up in their feelings, with many taking to social media to revel in the bittersweet performance.

"Quavo and Offset performing together again. This is what we needed," one fan wrote on Twitter, while another added, "Watched Quavo and Offset performance and literally cried let me go to bed 😭"

It comes after the pair reunited to celebrate what would have been their Takeoff's 29th birthday on June 18.

At the time, Quavo posted a series of photos on Instagram as friends and family gathered at a Takeoff mural wearing shirts with the late rap star's face on it.

"ALL for TAKE!" Quavo captioned the post.

Offset paid tribute via Instagram, saying, "Happy birthday rocket man. the greatest to touch a mic!! best spirit ever!!" 

"Purest man I know your heart was golden bring me peace bra we celebrate your life because you still right here I love you gang," he added.

It's not the only tribute to Takeoff the musos are hoping to debut, with Offset dropping a preview of a new track back in March 20 featuring a posthumous verse from Takeoff. 

In a one-minute clip to his Instagram story, Offset was seen bopping to the track in his car as Takeoff rapped alongside Detroit rapper Icewear Vezzo in a fiery verse.

While it’s not yet confirmed whether the banger of a track will appear on Offset’s forthcoming album, it’s undoubtedly gotten fans of the trap legend excited over the potential inclusion.
