ATLANTA — Services are planned for Friday for Migos rapper TakeOff at State Farm Arena.

The artist was shot and killed last week at a Houston bowling alley in an incident that authorities there continue to investigate, with no named suspects and little information about the exact moments in which TakeOff was shot.

The services are set to be held at State Farm Arena on Friday, Nov. 11 at 12 p.m. with doors opening at 11 a.m. They will be overseen by Lilburn’s New Mercies Church and senior pastor Rev. Jesse Curney III.

According to the arena in downtown Atlanta, tickets are going to be made available at 2 p.m. on Tuesday. You must be a Georgia resident and they are free of charge. Organizers said you can only get two tickets. Those who wish to pay their respects can get the tickets at Ticketmaster.

The public memorial will follow a strict no photo and no video policy, they said. All devices will be checked with Yondr bags before entering the arena.

“This is a limited-capacity event, and it is recommended that fans who do not secure tickets to not come downtown,” organizers said.

Lore’l from The Morning Hustle, a nationally-syndicated radio program on Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, told 11Alive’s Jon Shirek last week that “everyone is extremely devastated” at TakeOff’s passing.

“Migos literally shaped and changed the sound of hip hop music,” Lore’l said. “TakeOff was such an important part of the group. I mean, one part–one third–of the biggest group that, up to date, we’ve seen in my lifetime….”  She struggled to find the words, in her grief. “I just can’t even, I can’t even imagine.”

The family asks that in lieu of flowers or gifts that donations should be made to The Rocket Foundation, which was recently established to support programs which are saving lives through proven, community-based solutions to prevent gun violence.
