Late Migos rapper Takeoff's funeral is set for this coming Friday, and much like his career, the homegoing will be big … going down at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
The venue, which is home to the NBA's Atlanta Hawks, has the capacity to host more than 20,000 people.
Rev. Jesse Curney, III of New Mercies Christian Church will be officiating the services, which will begin at 1:00 PM … according to Atlanta radio station V-103.
In a statement, Rev. Curney said, "I was really sad to hear the news. Kirsnick has been a faithful member since he was ten years old. He and his family were active and avid supporters of the church and the community as a whole."
Emotions in the city have been heavy since Takeoff was shot and killed on November 1 in Houston.
Graffiti artist Armondo "Ape" Monoletti crafted a mural in Atlanta, just hours after the tragic news and friends and fam of Takeoff held a balloon sendoff over the weekend in his honor.
Law enforcement sources recently told TMZ they’re vigorously investigating the argument that led to the 28-year-old rapper’s death … but haven't pinpointed any suspect just yet.
