The public funeral for beloved Migos member Takeoff took place Friday (Nov. 11) at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, near where the late rapper grew up.

Free tickets to the memorial service were available to Georgia residents, but the State Farm Arena said well before Friday that the event had reached capacity. Alongside fans who made it inside the venue, stars including Offset, Cardi B, Drake, City Girls, Chloe Bailey, Justin Bieber and more gathered to remember the life of a star gone too soon.

During the event, Atlanta mayor Andre Dickens honored Takeoff’s family with the city’s highest honor, the Phoenix Award. Drake spoke onstage remembering his late friend, while Chloe Bailey, Bieber and Byron Cage performed at the touching memorial event.

Takeoff (born Kirshnik Khari Ball) was just 28 years old when he was shot and killed Nov. 1 during a private party at a bowling alley in downtown Houston with Quavo. The musician was killed by “penetrating gunshot wounds of head and torso into arm,” according to a report from the Harris County coroner’s office. A woman and another man were also wounded in the shooting. No arrests have been made.

Migos’ song streams surged 182.2% in the seven days following his death, while his solo material grew 434.9% in the same period, according to initial reports to Luminate.
