Artist dedicates mural to late Migos rapper Takeoff
A mural in honor of Migos rapper Takeoff now sits on the Atlanta BeltLine after his death during a shooting in Houston. Armondo Monoletti is the painter behind the tribute, and he joins Good Day to shares what compelled him to honor the late rapper.
Instead of flowers or gifts, the family is asking that people make donations to The Rocket Foundation, which aims to support programs using community-based solutions to stop gun violence, according to its website.
Monetary donations can be made with cards or cryptocurrency online.
The website says the foundation was established in honor of Takeoff.
The Rocket Foundation says the first round of funding will be split among four organizations:
- Community Justice Action Fund
- H.O.P.E. Hustlers
- Live Free
- Offenders Alumni Association
