Rapper XXXTentacion will be laid to rest on Wednesday in Florida, just over one week after the 20-year-old was fatally shot. The funeral and fan memorial will be held on June 27 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Florida Panthers Stadium in Sunrise, Florida, the rapper’s attorney, J. David Bogenschutz, tells PEOPLE. The service will also feature an open-casket viewing. (People)
Last weekend, Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill shared deep words about putting peace over hate amid X’s fatal shooting.
“Before I say this, before we carry on, I want to say this. That was a good n*gga that lost his motherf*cking life and if you come up from the motherf*cking streets and the ghettos of America, you black, you Spanish with a system already trying to hunt us the f*ck down. Make sure you think about it before you kill a motherf*cker just like you. I want to say rest in peace to that young n*gga XXXTentacion. We on some 2019, 20, 25, 30, we ain’t killing each other no more. We getting motherf*cking money.”
In a new interview, rap executive Dame Dash compared X’s slaying to the deaths of hip-hop icons Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac.
“That’s not what we’re here for. But at the end of the day, that’s going to severely f*ck your money up. Because when people don’t feel safe at shows, then they’re not going to hire you to perform,” Dame said explaining death should never be a solution to any rifts. “So if you can’t think about it on an empathy level, or a humanity level, at least look at it on a business level. I remember we couldn’t perform until the Hard Knock Life Tour. We had to struggle and prove ourselves, and then that opened the doors again. It’s just funny how things go in cycles, and you could just feel it. Actually, I got it on tape. I was like, “Yo, it don’t feel right. It’s going to take somebody to get killed, for everybody to cool out.” And it’s sad that it was him. But he’s definitely going to be looked at from this 15 to 25-year-old generation as Tupac and Biggie.” (AHH)
