The American rapper was born on June 18, 1994, in Lawrenceville, Georgia located in Gwinnett County, Atlanta. Born Kirshnkik Khari Ball, Takeoff was raised by Quavo’s mother and is a cousin to Offset.

He also has a solo career that has seen him release a number of singles, an album – The Last Rocket, and he is working on his mixtape with Lil Yachty, Hip Hop’s White Singers.

Offset

Kiari Kendrell Cephus (Offset) was born on December 14, 1991, in Lawrenceville, Georgia Atlanta; he grew up with Quavo and Takeoff who were his uncle and cousin respectively. Although Offset became famous for his musical abilities, he became even more famous due to his marriage to Grammy-winning American female rapper Cardi B whom he married in September 2017. Cardi B announced their split over social media on December 5, 2018. However, they soon returned to each other.

A father of 4, the rapper has two sons and a daughter from a previously undisclosed relationship and one other child, a daughter named Kulture Kiari Cephus with Cardi B.

The 5ft 9in musician, more often than not, is the one who usually gets into big trouble with the long arm of the law. He was imprisoned in 2013 for violating his probation for an earlier crime committed (burglary, felony, and theft). He was also charged with assault and battery, inciting a riot whilst in prison on May 2nd, 2015 and he spent some months in jail after a sizable amount of marijuana was found on him when his group was busted during their tour.

Just like other members of The Migos, he also has a solo career through which he came to release an album, Father of 4 in 2019, as well as a collaborative album with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin, Without Warning, and a good number of singles. He has also appeared in a 2020 episode of NCIS: Los Angeles.

The Migos Are Rich As A Group And As Individuals

In spite of the fact that the Migos members have been in the game for close to a decade, the rap group’s mainstream success began in 2017 as a group. The success thus almost instantly opened them up to both fame and fortune. They have sold millions of their records and also had successful concerts both in the States and other parts of the world, including The UK and Canada.

Described as one of the highest-earning rappers as far as touring is concerned, the Migos have a combined fortune that is estimated at a massive $80 million by 2020, which is a significant jump from the earlier $50 million in 2018.

Individually, they have all come a long way as their fortune has shown. While Offset has a net worth that has been estimated at $26.6 million, both Quavo and Takeoff have also been said to also register the same $26.6 million each as their net worths. Back in 2018 when they were listed by Forbes among the 30 Under 30, they were making as much as $150,000 per tour stop.

Even though their earnings may seem much, the trio revealed that they have lost millions of dollars in contracts due to sharing the same lawyer with their record label. Because of this, they dragged their lawyer to court, alleging conflict of interest. They filed a malpractice lawsuit against Damien Granderson who was their attorney for a long time, seeking to be paid millions as they believed he favoured the label over them.
