Following Takeoff’s public memorial on Friday, Cardi B posted an emotional tribute to the slain Migos rapper.

“Takeoff your untimely passing has brought a great deal of pain and sorrow to so many lives,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a series of photos of Takeoff, the cousin of her husband Offset. “The impact you had in this world was so considerable and we have struggled to grasp this tragedy.”

“This has truly been a nightmare and the pain is incomparable,” she continued. “The emptiness your brothers are feeling is unbearable and I pray that you give Offset ,Quavo, and your friends and family the strength to keep going as they are trying to cope with this loss.”

She went on to say that it hurts her to look at pictures and videos of Migos together and hear their songs.

“It hurts because I know it will never be the same again—but I know your bros and y’all fans will make sure the world never forgets the impact you made,” she wrote.

Cardi ended with saying she will miss Takeoff and she hopes he is at peace. “Rest in power TakeOff,” she concluded. “I will also love you 4L & after.”

Takeoff was shot and killed in Houston on November 1 at age 28.
