Cardi also shared a screengrab of her private messages with Takeoff, in which she encouraged him about his future and he gushed: 'love you too 4L & After thank u sis.'
'Takeoff your untimely passing has brought a great deal of pain and sorrow to so many lives. The impact you had in this world was so considerable and we have struggled to grasp this tragedy,' she wrote in her caption.
'I am heartbroken but I am grateful for all the precious memories we got to share while you were here with us. This has truly been a nightmare and the pain is incomparable,' Cardi confessed.
'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.'
