Just a week after Quavo released a new song that directly tributes Takeoff, who passed away in November of last year, Offset has returned with a new song of his own. Collectively, the trio released music as Migos, where they influenced the prevailing trap style of hip hop in the 2010s. Now Offset is back with his first new single since August but unlike Quavo, he doesn't use the song to discuss or tribute Takeoff.
Offset certainly hasn't been quiet when it comes to addressing Takeoff's passing. Not only did he tribute the late rapper on social media but he also delivered a memorable speech at his funeral, crediting Takeoff as being the innovator behind the extremely influential sound Migos cultivated.
'2 LIVE' is a club anthem with a booming beat and high-energy verses from both Offset and Hit-Boy. It serves as the third single from Offset's upcoming second solo album, which was delayed out of respect for Takeoff after his passing. Hit-Boy also has an upcoming project, a collaborative effort with Musiq Soulchild which is rumored to come out later this year. He's coming off about as big of a year as any producer had, working on some smash albums like Beyonce's Renaissance and just last month releasing the critically acclaimed third entry in his King's Disease album series with Nas.
