In his tweets,Jidenna called out those celebrating the death of the controversial young rapper who was facing more than a dozen felony charges including awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend.
His tweet reads;
“R.I.P @xxxtentacion No one can be so self-righteous that they are happy when a youth dies. The young still have the capability to reform. God bless the kids. #xxxtentacion
For the record, I was never in support of his ways, especially his domestic abuse which I found to be horrific. But I will never demonize an individual without criticizing the society and/or circumstance in which they were raised. Especially someone under 21.
For those who are so woke that their compassion is asleep, remember this…if Malcolm X was killed at the age of 20, he would have died an abuser, a thief, an addict, and a narrow-minded depressed & violent criminal. So, I believe in change for the young.
My point here is not to equate Malcolm with XXX, but to point out that a young lost kid can evolve into something greater. I do believe kharma was at work, however, so I pray that men heed this warning and that we revere women more than any generation b4 us.”:
Celebrities including Kanye West, Jidenna, The Game, J.Cole, Tyga and many others have taken to their respective social media accounts to mourn the death of rapper XXXTenctacion who was shot dead on Monday in Maimi.
