XXXTENTACION Has Passed Away At 20 | Genius News


TIA: Florida rapper XXXTENTACION has died,
the Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.
According to a report from ‘TMZ,’ the
20-year-old rapper was shot while out shopping
for motorcycles in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
He was rushed to the hospital shortly afterwards,
where he was pronounced dead.
X rose to prominence in late 2016 with his
breakout hit “Look At Me!.”
He dropped his debut album ‘17’ in August
2017,
reaching no. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
His 2018 follow-up ‘?’ debuted at No.
1 and spawned the hit single “SAD!,”
which reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In 2017, he was the single most popular new artist on Genius,
earning over 20 million pageviews across all of his catalog.
His popularity was met with significant controversy,
as he was awaiting trial on multiple felony charges,
including battery and aggravated
assault of a pregnant victim, battery by strangulation,
and false imprisonment.
Despite his disturbing personal conduct, XXX
has been viewed as the most prominent voice
in the emergent South Florida SoundCloud rap
scene, which also includes rappers like
Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp,
and ​​wifisfuneral.
He’s collaborated with artists like Joey
Bada$$, Kodak Black, Trippie Redd, Denzel Curry,
and Noah Cyrus, and has been praised
by artists like A$AP Rocky, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar.
Genius interviewed X while he was in prison
in 2017 about the range of his sound.
XXXTENTACION: I like to consider myself an artist. I do alternative rock, like a melancholy indie,
all the way down to an old school lyrical boom bap rap, like a lyrical Kendrick Lamar or Joey Badass rap,
all the way down to a New Age rap like Young Thug, Lil Uzi, and all of them boys.
You get what I’m saying? I try to keep it as multi-genre as possible, or switch up my style as much as possible.
TIA: I’m Tia with Genius News, bringing you
the meaning and the knowledge behind the music.

    still can't believe until today that such horrible things have to happen to amazing beings… but I think it's for the best after all… who knows, perhaps something worse would had happen to them, sometimes we have to go though all of these to grow up and understand how important life is so if someone is reading this right now, I want you to not be sad for anything that you got or did not get, do not hate your body, love yourself because you are already very lucky to be alive and remember smile and luck will come to you no matter how long or how hard it will come one day and do not give up on anything you want to do ❤️
