As controversial as he was, XXXTentacion was an icon to a lot of us.
I remember finding out about him on Vine back in 2014 in the editing communities. His music really struck me as unique and it was like an outlet for me. I’ve listened to all of his music and seeing him evolve into a better person through the years, I could never see a day like this coming. I’ve expected a lot of things about a lot of things, but this was all too sudden.
I’m in shock right now, and I just wanted to say that despite what he may have done in the past, he was one of the most influential artists in recent times.
I don’t know what else to say. I’m in shock.
