On Thursday, the Los Angeles native explained how X’s sudden death has forced him to reexamine life and his feelings toward other musicians.
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 🙏🏾

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.”
