The famous rapper was this week's guest on The Jason Lee Podcast, where she claimed that she and Offset had planned to attend a Halloween party on the night of Takeoff's murder, but decided to stay home when their four-year-old Kulture puked over Cardi's costume.
“We just fell asleep and out of nowhere, Offset’s phone kept ringing, my phone kept ringing,” she recalled. “Offset picked up the phone and he [was] just like, ‘Noooo,’ and he [was] screaming and screaming. I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ and he’s like, ‘Takeoff is dead.'”

“I smacked him and I said, ‘Don’t say that. Like, don’t say that!’ And then he [was] just screaming and just throwing things, throwing up, running all over and I was so scared,” she continued. “I was just crying so much. It was terrible.”
After the tragedy, Cardi expressed gratitude for the time she had with Migos, which included Takeoff, his uncle Quavo, and cousin Offset. “I feel like I’m so happy that I experienced all those great moments when they were all together and everything,” she said. “It’s a great memory. Sometimes I cannot even listen to Culture because I get emotional. I love them forever.”
Takeoff was only 28 years old when he got killed during a private party at a downtown Houston bowling alley. Takeoff's major cause of death was identified as "penetrating gunshot wounds of head and body into arm," according to an autopsy.
