Quavo is carrying on Takeoff’s legacy by launching a new project to control and battle gun violence in Atlanta.

Qua launched the Sparks Grants Initiative on Wednesday (March 20), awarding $10,000 each to ten organizations to fund their projects addressing gun violence and control, according to Billboard.

“I am honored to launch this grant program to honor Take and the countless families that have been affected by gun violence,” all of the “Himothy” hip-hop artist said. “The Rocket Foundation will award $100,000 in Spark awards to local organizations working to eliminating community violence in Atlanta. There is a lot of vital work going on in Atlanta right now, and part of our mission is to uplift and support these groups so that they can save more lives.”

TakeOff, née Kirsnick Khari Ball, was shot and killed outside 810 Billiards and Bowling Alley in Houston on November 1, 2022, following an incident over a heated dice game. He was buried two weeks later in Atlanta, when a large crowd of fans, family, and friends attended the burial.

Following the death of Take, Quavo told his fans, “I miss him a lot and I love him. He is aware that I love him. That is what we always know. So, if you see me smiling or something, don’t assume I forgot about him or that I would forget about him. I think of him all the time. I sometimes weep myself to sleep. And that’s all.”

Quavo also told VIBE in 2023 that he was working on a posthumous record for the murdered rapper.

“The next thing I’ll be working on is the Rockets. Do you understand what I am saying? “Takeoff,” he said, without providing a date. “I’m gathering a ton of information, as well as a lot of producers, friends, and artists. And we’re going to make this one of the most insane albums of all time.”

“So my next mission is to get a Takeoff’s album together.”
