Heading into the weekend, Game tossed up a pic to mourn XXX and deliver a message about cherishing life.
Music mogul JAY-Z used his new “Talk Up” Drake collabo to address X’s slaying.
On Scorpion, the rap icon makes an appearance on ‘Talk Up’, and opens up on the shooting that killed XXXTentacion just last week. The moment comes as Jay reflects upon the death of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager killed by George Zimmerman in 2012. “Y’all killed X and let Zimmerman live, streets is done”, Jay raps on the track. (NME)
A few days ago, Game explained how much of a personal impact X’s passing had on him.
For some reason, he been heavy on my heart since the day he died. Don’t know what exactly my heart is trying to convey but I definitely feel an obligation to protect this new generation of artist. In studio thinkin bout all y’all… be creative, live life, have fun, enjoy your moment & try your hardest to bob & weave thru the madness. Fuck whoever don’t understand….. hip hop takes on all shapes & forms as it continuously evolves & I love its current state. Take advantage of every second while living out your dream 🙏🏾
Earlier in the week, Hollywood actress Skai Jackson and Lil Uzi Vert pulled through for X’s funeral.
