Yesterday, the music world mourned the loss of rising alternative superstar XXXTentacion. The news of another young artist gone sent shockwaves across most of the hip-hop community and our timelines were flooded with heated debate. Regardless of one’s personal opinion of the famed underground performer, there is no denying his major influence on the current culture. One of the biggest surprises revealed during other artist’s personal eulogies was from none other than Diplo. He announced in a heartfelt Instagram post that X was apparently invited to fly out to L.A, and had dreams of working on his next album not only with Diplo, but with Skrillex as well. Unfortunately, now all we have is speculation of what could have been.
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 .
