A brawl erupted at the Grammys last night between rappers Quavo and Offset over the death of another member of “Migos,” Takeoff.
The brawl happened backstage just before Quavo took the stage to perform his song “Without You” as a tribute to Takeoff.
The song was set to be part of the “In Memoriam” segment of the show.
Takeoff was shot dead in 2022.
Quavo and Offset got into a physical fight and had to be pulled apart, according to TMZ.
Quavo had written the song “Without You” for Takeoff.
But he objected to the idea of sharing the stage with Offset during the Grammys to honor their fellow group member who was murdered last November while Quavo and Takeoff were in Houston outside a private party.

According to TMZ, “we’re told The Grammys had asked Offset to be a part of the tribute, but Quavo refused to let him take part.
“We’re told Quavo blocked Offset from joining him on stage … leading to the melee. Our Offset sources say it was Quavo who started the fight.”
Offset took to Twitter and denied a fight took place:
“What tf look like fighting my brother yal niggas is crazy.”
Takeoff was Quavo’s nephew. The pair were very close.
Both were estranged from group member Offset at the time of Takeoff’s murder.
Offset who was Quavo’s cousin.
Fans were upset the pair did not appear together during the tribute with one saying:
“Is Quavo’s beef w/ Offset that deep to where they couldn’t have done this together?!
“He’s literally right there.”
Another fan said:
“Offset deserved to be part of the tribute just as much as Quavo.
“So I don’t understand where Quavo’s entitlement to being the sole performer of Take’s tribute is coming from.”
