XXXTentacion er død

Politiet i Florida her. 
X var en kontroversiell skikkelse, som noen ganger kan ha manglet moralsk kompass. Dette blant annet grunnet anklager om vold mot sin gravide eks. Han ventet på rettsaken. 
Rapperen/sangeren, som har sagt at Kurt Cobain var den eneste som inspirerte ham, slapp sin første EP Ice Hotel i 2014 da han var 15. 
I sin relativt korte karriere laget han mye unik og til tider sjangerbrytende musikk, med to plater som til sammen toppet VG-lista i fem uker. Norge var det eneste landet hvor 20-åringens debutalbum tok førsteplass. (Nummer 2 i USA.)

The Game skriver at han aldri møtte X, men at han beundrer ham. LA-rapperen nevner også hvorfor han tror X ble den han ble:

Murdered at 20 years old. So young. His untimely death truly saddens me & I’ve never met him. Though listening to his music told me a lot about him. At times he seemed very depressed & confused about life as we all are (were) at a young age… other times he was very happy & an open book for his fans. That to me has always been the way of a true hip hop artist. He was a lot more talented than most knew from the music he leaves behind & there’s no doubt in my mind that he would’ve grown both musically & mentally from the few changes I’ve watch him make just over social media… He was very talented & could literally go in any direction on a beat & hold his own. More than not he talked about his death.. “If I die” “when I die” a lot but we’re all guilty of that as artists in some way shape or form & we as people are not anyone’s judge. We’re all down here under God living & learning everyday & none of us is or will ever be perfect. Our IMPERFECTIONS are what makes us beautiful. He made mistakes & was man enough at his young age to acknowledge, accept blame & try to change & offer his fans alternate solutions knowing that they too could be in need of guidance. That is what I respect. I pray for this new generation full of talented artist & kids alike. No matter the age difference or gap, we must understand that we are all on earth TOGETHER trying to enjoy life at whatever capacity that brings us joy. Yet & still, we are only HUMAN….. & this situation alone is saddening. A young man, both very wise & sometimes normally confused is taken away from his family, friends & fans before his life can run its full course. It’s like fuck…. As soon as you think life is okay, tragedy again plagues an already dark world. Take it day by day young world. The MASS AGENDA wants as many of us to die as young as possible so they can make money off your funeral & burial before it costs them to implement additional learning tools to ensure your education & survival. I love all of you & I UNDERSTAND you’re just trying to figure yourself out. WE ALL ARE #RestInParadise #XXX

I fjor høst var Florida-gutten i studio med norsk produsent: – Han er et friskt pust 
Singelen hans «SAD!», som gikk topp 10 på Billboard Hot 100, ble i mai fjernet fra Spotifys spillelister grunnet selskapets nye regel om å ikke støtte artister som «ikke reflekterer deres verdier».
