XXX Tentacion – Gone But not Forgotten

XXXX332324

On June 18, 2018, Once i woke up that day, and looked at my phone, i was alarmed… i was sum what in disbelief, and shock.  The Hip Hop game, the depressed fans, the world… lost an Artist by the name of XXX Tentacion. He was brutally gunned down in Deerfield Beach, FL . He just finished shopping for a motorcycle. He was in his BMW i8, leaving, and 2 gunman pulled up on him, and open fire.

Reports of him being shot and not having a pulse, ( TMZ ) started circulating, and soon after, a video appears of his lifeless body, sitting in his car..  Now, the moment of silence.

XXX Tentacion

At this point, all there is left to do is wait. Wait for more reports, wait for DJ Akademiks to confirm. And then, it was confirmed. XXX is now pronounced dead. This is a kid who was facing many legal troubles, including beating up his then pregnant girlfriend.

Still with him being in and out of jail, getting backlash for it.. Still his music surged thru all the bullshit. His song “Look at me”, with that eire intro, and distorted sound, brought him to his chart topping fame. This kid was strictly organic and had a colt following. Hit number 1 on US billboard 200 and even on Canadian Billboard..This year he also celebrated hitting a billion streams for his album “?”. 1.5M fans on twitter.. 10M on Instagram.

XXXTentacion ON STAGE

I must admit, the first time i heard this song, i said… They recorded it wrong..lol… It’s peaking….  but i was fully unaware i was at the discovery of a “New Wave”.  Although it had a run, it wasnt too much of run for that sound, thank GOD! I dont know how much more my headphone could take.

He was doing alot of charity events and giving to the lesser fortunate kids in the neighborhoods. On the day of his death he put on his Instagram he wanted to do another event.

This is far from my generation, but he was making a change in his personal life and showing it to the world, and for that i respect him. He just dropped a song called “Sad” that has been doing very well. He was only 20 years old, i believe he had so much more ahead of him.

XXX Tentacion

They police are looking for suspects but theres alot of speculation around who? Who had the balls to go and kill this young black man.. XXX has been attacked several times over the last 2 years. Even on camera, on stage, while he was performing.

XXX Tentacion Knocked out

Yes that guy got the brakes beat out of him, you can only imagine. I mean, anyone can get knocked out like that. This guy ran from who knows where, and sucker punched X. So no love lost there. And still he continued to win. He had issue with Rob stone, even Drake…

XXXTentacion ON STAGE

It’s still very early in the case to point fingers. But you do know, in the day and age of the internet, just as reckless as these kids are to shoot and die young, they have a tendency to “Dry Snitch” on themselves. Details say the shooter had a red mask.. And as the investigation digs deeper, we find some kids trolling , and posting images with very scary clues.. lol.. This guy is called Soldier Kidd..

Soldier Kidd XXX Tentacion

The most widely circulated rumor, however, is that rapper Soldier Kidd murdered XXXTentacion. Here’s why.

 

1. He had a video of a gun the same day in a nearby location on his Instagram story

Before the shooting, Soldier Kidd posted a Boomerang video to his Instagram story showing that he had food from Hook Fish and Chicken, an eatery whose location, according to Google Maps, happens to be in Deerfield Beach, Florida — the same city where XXXTentacion was shot. Next to Kidd’s platter of food is a gun. Yea , he did that…

2. The Photo.

The first image you see with the red car…

3. People think he confessed on Twitter

I mean we cant even make this shit up.. You see what i mean.. by the trolling, and the dry snithcing? ok.

Then he goes on instragram talking about he didnt do anything. I mean, this is just ridiculous at this point.

XXXTentacion The BEAT 103.5

So as you can see this will be very messy. All we can hope is that justice is served. Although he was messy himself, and had his issues, no one has the right to take someone elses life like that, in broad daylight. Alot of his fans are going crazy and are mourning his death. His streaming has gone up over 20% daily since then.. Yes this is the part where they dont send you the flowers while you can smell them.  But still, he had MILLIONS of loyal fans. And he loved to account of each and every one of them.

He surely had a death wish, and tried to off himself several times..Toward his end, he wanted to help all the kids that looked up to him. He knew that he had a responsibility with them. So then he started cleaning up. So he was getting on the right path to stabilize his life and career.

XXXTentacion In Crowd

He will be missed, and this post will be updated as soon as the information comes. I found a great video interview with him and DJ Akademiks where he was in his own space and you get alot of insight on how he used to think and what he was going thru. You almost wish he didn’t want that motorcycle, or wish he stayed home that day.

Interview:

He recently got a Tattoo on his face, of a clock, and captioned it online, “Time is valuable, Do not Waste it” right over his Loyalty tattoo.

xxxxtime

And this is so true.. Make sure you make the most of your time. He didnt have his fathers support… His mom kicked him out the house, and he still manage to survive and surpass his peers. For this, he is and will be a staple on this new generation.

#Pusha T and #Drake Battle?

You know, you gotta appreciate when the talent comes out of these guys in this sport we call Rap! There are different styles, different demeanors , different views. Pusha T has always been a Fav for me, as his verses are always colorful and vivid since “Lord Willin” Even after his brother left him on stage with the mic cord in hand…  Pusha T still prevailed and proved that he will NOT be Finished.. I also have been a Drake fan since i first saw his mixtape on Datpiff.. and listened to it… and said to myself.. this is going to be Huge.  So somehow down the path.. We bump heads in 2018. In case you needed to catch up… ( StreetFighter Voice)  FIGHT!!

 

Pusha T

Drake

 

I’m waiting for round 3.

New Music: Pongo Rulay – FredStar ft Alex D

Secrect release with a debut artist called Alex D.

Pongo Rulay Cover Final

Fredstar has been mia the last few months, but apparently he has been in the kitchen cooking up.. He pops up with a secrect release with a debut artist called Alex D. They have the Dominican Republic Fueling their machine with this energized dembow party record. The song originates from the Dominican Slang “Rulay” which is translated to “Chilling” or “Relaxed” or “Having a good time”. This record is still unreleased but is currently playing in the clubs and he gearing up for major promotion for the summer.. Do we hear an album coming? Since this is a different route for Fredstar as he seems to be tapping into his Latin Roots. Take a listen and be sure to share it with your friends and family if you enjoyed it. Should be hitting Spotify, Itunes, and all that good stuff.. We’ll keep an eye out for more from FredStar and Alex D. Enjoy.

Here’s a Youtube link.

JAY-Z – The Story of O.J. (4:44)

This joint, i had to post, just because, i am a huge fan of Art. Jay-Z has brought Animation, Bars, and Meaning on a crazy NO ID record..  Jay-Z is just on such a level at this point, it seems like he cant loose.. He def turned Lemons, in to Lemonade, and for this, i have to give him the respect he deserves.. I know, he was one of the same guys that he speaks of on this record. Buying out bars, cars, and hoes… But Jay-Z quickly matured, and so did his money.. but guess what… Still Nigga. Real nigga Salute. Enjoy #100 #WassupFred
