Damn bro, I still remember I found out about you. A few summers ago I seen a video of you fightin somebody. Early 2016 we was listening to “SippinTeaInYoHood” but we never even knew that was your song. When you DM’ed me that gave me the inspiration to keep doing this rappin shit. I remember the first time I met you bro. “Rubbin off the paint” had just blew up & I was in LA for my first tour wit SOBxRBE. Nigga you came up to the car & you treated me like I was yo brother ? I really don’t do this paragraph shit & I den lost a lot of people. But I just wanna say thank you for everything @xxxtentacion . Not just for me but for all the positive things you do for people. Had hella love 4 yo weird ass ? I hate this shit foo
Honestly heartbroken. You pushed me and so many other to limits we never thought we could even reach dude.
Honestly don’t even wanna believe this tbh. Everybody have a blessed day enjoy the people around you. Please do. This shit sucks.
