Members of the hip-hop community react to the news of XXXTentacion’s passing.
As we all prayed that XXXTentacion would make it through the reported shooting that happened earlier today, he was, unfortunately, pronounced dead. XXX offered so much to the hip-hop community and while his past is certainly controversial, his most committed fans saw past any of the negativity to focus on the beautiful art he created. Thankfully, X has left behind a strong legacy, featuring a number 1 album, over a billion streams and a discography that we can continuously look back on. However, with so much talent that was left untapped, XXXTentacion’s passing is tragic, horrific and so incredibly untimely.
With so much musical versatility, X could truly do it all. He could rap, sing and scream and somehow, he always sounded good no matter how he performed. The rapper was reportedly shot in Florida while shopping for a new motorcycle and he did not make it through the damages. As we all pray for his family, friends, and collaborators, we look back on what XXX left for us to enjoy. His “brother” Ski Mask The Slump God was one of the first to react to the news, letting out a visceral cry of “WHAT THE FUCKKKKK” but so many others have responded to the fatal shooting.
We have rounded up some reactions from our hip-hop family below. XXXTentacion may have passed but his music lives on and he will not be forgotten. RIP XXX.
WHAT THE FUCKKKKK

Regardless of what XXXTentacion has done in the past … to see people crack jokes is beyond disrespectful. Y’all parents have failed y’all .

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
look i’m not the type to post our messages on here, but i do want to say one thing. i know we’ve publicly had our disagreements, but what the media doesn’t know is that we handled it all behind the scenes like grown ass men, and i’m glad we did. It’s really crazy how mature you are because I was ready to fight yo ass nigga and i didn’t care that yo weird ass took fighting classes 😂. But look…people talk alot of shit about our XXL 2017 Freshman Class, but nigga we made hip-hop HISTORY idc 🤷🏽♂️. As smart as you were, it always confused me because of how much potential you saw in me. It means alot. We are all hurt, and its really not a good feeling at all, but hey. I’m not trying to be too sappy so look here. We gonna miss you and i’m gonna maintain the balance that we last talked about. Rest easy, homie. @xxxtentacion -Royce🤕
