Lil Cam, the man who Black Twitter is convinced is responsible for killing Migos rapper Takeoff, was taken into custody this week, Media Take Out has learned.
According to documents exclusively obtained by Media Take Out, Lil Cam, real name Joshua Cameron, was arrested and charged with illegally carrying a firearm. He is currently in the Harris County jail, and while there on unrelated charges – Media Take Out confirmed that he is being questioned by detectives with respect to the Takeoff shooting.
Here are the receipts:
Lil Cam was out on bail for previous charges, Media Take Out confirmed, and was released in April of this year. This latest warrant serves as a violation of the terms of his existing bond.
Lil Cam has become a person of interest in the case, after sleuths on Black Twitter claim that the video footage shows that Lil Cam may have been the trigger man, who fired the fatal shots at the Migos member.
Media Take Out reviewed the footage, and could not conclusively say that the footage showed Lil Cam firing the shots.
Takeoff was an American rapper. He was best known as a third of the hip hop trio Migos along with his uncle Quavo and first cousin once removed Offset. The group scored multiple top ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100 including “MotorSport” featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, “Stir Fry”, “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake, and “Bad and Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, the latter of which peaked at the top of the chart (although Takeoff was not present on the single). He also received two Grammy Award nominations.
On November 1, 2022, Takeoff was shot and killed in Houston, Texas.
