Three days after the death of XXXTentacion (June 21), the mother of the slain rapper has announced that he has “left us a final gift,” a child.
The news brings positivity this week as family, friends and fans of XXXTentacion continue to mourn his death. On Monday (June 18), the “Changes” rhymer was fatally shot outside of RIVA Motorsports in what many believe to be a robbery gone wrong. The following night, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel vowed to bring his killers to justice, and now one of the two suspects in question has been apprehended. Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, was charged with first-degree murder, probation violation for theft of a car motor vehicle and driving without a valid license. He’s currently being held without bond.
Cleopatra Bernard uploaded a photo of a sonogram, which is reportedly X’s unborn child. Fans immediately responded to the Instagram post with tweets and lyrics from the artist, including his Twitter post which reads, “if I die will i be born again.” The mother-to-be has yet to be revealed.
Since the tragedy occurred, rappers like Kanye West and Diddy have expressed their condolences and praised him for his musical genius. Both Yung Bans and Juice Wrld have dropped tribute tracks for the slain rapper, and Wifisfuneral got face tattoos similar to those X had.
Trippie Redd, whose birthday was the day of the “Sad” rhymer’s death, dyed his hair in a similar fashion to X’s shortly after his passing. He also dropped the previously-unreleased cut “Ghostbusters,” X’s first posthumous cut with Trippie, Ski Mask The Slump God and Quavo.
Ski Mask, his longtime collaborator and friend, is preparing to takeover the charity event XXXTentacion had plannedfor this weekend. According to his mom, “Jahseh’s final wish” will still take place in Florida this Sunday (June 24).
