After Migos was involved in a mafia-style drive-by shooting in Miami on March 28, members of the Atlanta-based rap group took to Twitter to brag about it. What were they thinking?!
Migos members Quavo (Quavious Marshall, 22), Takeoff (Kirshnik Ball, 19) and Offset (Kiari Cephus, 22) escaped unharmed after their van was shot at on a Miami-Dade County highway early on the morning of March 28. The group returned fire on their assailants — but instead of being traumatized by the incident, it looks like Migos is actually proud!

Migos Involved In Miami Mafia Shootout
Joe Sanchez of Florida Highway Patrol explained how the shooting went down to NBC6 of South Florida.
“Around 3:30 in the morning, that van was traveling southbound [on I-95] with eight occupants, [including] members of the entertainment group Migos,” he said “For whatever unknown reason, a vehicle drove next to them and opened fire on them [with] several rounds. There was an exchange of gunfire between both vehicles, and the other vehicle fled.”
One of the group’s bodyguards was reportedly shot in the leg and needed to be hospitalized, according to TMZ. However, Migos’ manager revealed that none of the group members were injured. The manager added that Migos returned fire at the other vehicle, which held an unknown number of occupants. “There was at least 40 rounds being blasted on those n******,” the manager said.
After the shooting, the group’s driver sped off to the nearest hospital, thinking someone in the van might have been shot. Police confiscated the van at the hospital, and it’s being processed as part of the investigation. It is not yet known whether Migos or their attackers will be charged in the incident.
