La notizia è arrivata poche ore fa come un fulmine a ciel sereno: il rapper XXXTentacion è morto a soli 20 anni.
Considerato uno dei talenti più promettenti della scena musicale americana, XXXTentacion - all'anagrafe Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy - è deceduto in Florida dopo essere stato raggiunto da alcuni colpi di pistola.
Il rapper stava uscendo da un concessionario di motociclette a nord di Fort Laudardale, quando è stato vittima di quella che sembra una tentata rapina.
Gli omaggi giunti dal mondo della musica sono tantissimi. Con due album in studio e diversi singoli, XXXTentacion aveva saputo conquistarsi la credibilità e il rispetto della scena musicale internazionale, non solo rap.
Qui sotto riportiamo alcuni post dei colleghi che hanno voluto ricordarlo.

This kid was a genius . true artist. He made his own rules. He has his faults and we was willing to pay for his sins.. but he was young and he worked so hard on his own self . He wanted to be better. he loves everyone so much . He lived for every kid out here. He had the biggest imagination. He texted me this weekend it was one of his goals to get me & Skrillex to finish his next album. I Invited him to La this week. I was wondering if he was gonna come 💛 . He used every second of his life to create . He reppped Florida to his core.. I love this kid . He was gonna do so much more he promised me 💔
This got me fucked up. RIP X. Enormous talent and limitless potential and a strong desire to be a better person. God bless his family, friends and fans.
