Despite his controversial past, the rap world is morning the loss of rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot dead in Miami today. At the young age of 20, the Florida native and ‘Look At Me’ rapper was one of the most energetic performers in the entire genre.
Police confirmed XXXTentacion’s death, soon after TMZ reported that the rapper had been shot in Broward County, Florida in an apparent robbery. Deputies are asking for anyone with information to come forward.

Two of Florida’s hottest rappers have combined forces for ‘Roll In Peace’, Kodak Black’s new track and music video with the always controversial XXXTentacion.
While both rappers not only rep Florida, but also have had their shares of drama and legal issues, it was only right that the two collaborate for the new track. You can certainly expect a lot from both Kodak and XXXTentacion in 2018.
Check out the music video for ‘Roll In Peace’ below.
It appears that rapper Ski Mask The Slump God is distancing himself from friend and frequent collaborator, XXXTentacion, amidst X’s recent abuse allegations, as fans have noticed that Ski Mask has unfollowed XXXTentacion on Twitter.
Just months ago, the two rappers were almost one in the same. You couldn’t hear Ski Mask’s name without hearing XXXTentacion as well. But now that Ski Mask is starting to make a name for himself and land some big collaborations, it appears that the bad press that comes with XXXTentacion may be too much for him. Whether or not this is the true reason, distancing himself from XXXTentacion may not be the worst thing for Ski Mask right now.

Crowd surfing at concerts, while extremely fun, can often go wrong. Not only do you have to trust a crowd of strangers to catch you, but as rapper Wifisfuneral learned last night in Houston, you also have to trust someone not to kill the moment by jumping you while you’re defenseless.
During the opening night of XXXTentacion’s headlining “Revenge Tour”, Florida native Wifisfuneral decided to crowd surf at the House of Blues in Houston, TX. But just moments after the fans caught him, a “fan” can be seen punching Wifi, as shown in the fan captured video below. One thing is for sure, you can definitely expect XXXTentacion’s concert to be wild. Wifi later shared a selfie with fans though to show that he is okay.
Watch the fan captured video of the incident below.

Despite rumors and VISA issues, rapper XXXTentacion and Rich Chigga are both still set to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami next month, both rappers have confirmed.
As rumors began to circulate that XXXTentacion would not make his set next month, the rapper took to his Instagram Live to dispel any rumors. Rich Chigga, on the other hand, was a close call, as the ‘Dat $tick’ rapper was forced to cancel several upcoming shows due to issues with his VISA. However Chigga took to Twitter to confirm that he will still be here in time for his Rolling Loud set, so don’t worry!
