    TMZ- The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida and, as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him.

    there's an uncensored video on youtube if anyone wants to see it, but there's no doubt in my mind that he's dead. feel free to post your own takes on the situation/his music/himself/etc.​

    allegedly he was shot but in the videos there's no blood anywhere. that shit'd be gushing and all over his clothes if he were shot in the head.

    hopefully he recovers or this is some a big marketing stunt. dude makes some good music, way too soon for him to go.

    Tragic, think of all the pregnant women he could beat if he wasn't snuffed out so young.

    Some sites said the man's straight sleep. Man made some nice ass shit.

    It's fucked that a man can get gunned like this in the middle of the road.

    Abusing women is despicable and absolutely disgusting. It's irredeemable and deserves to land you in jail for a long time.
    However, that doesn't make it any fucking uglier that a person can get gunned down in the street when they're minding their own business.
    I've had friends get shot like that, man. It doesn't matter if you were a piece of shit or not, this shit should never happen.

    i can't say i'm big into rap music, or a lot of the 'personalities' that spawn from it, but newticus is right. it doesn't really make it any less ugly that he was gunned down in the street like he was. that's why it pained me that i had to go through a private vendor to get something that i could deploy rapidly in the event that i should find myself in a situation such as this.

    Beating pregnant women doesn't warrant extrajudicial killing, but neither does it provoke any particular sense of reverence in me.

    while X's death is something that I'm only shocked with at best, I'll definitely miss his music. I think it inspired a new wave of media like alternative rap and AMVs, while also encouraging the exploration of negative emotions like anxiety, sadness, etc in rap.

    Some people need to learn to separate an artist from their art.

    E; Instead of dumb rating me, maybe like, give an opinion on it without sounding fanatic.

    Right, and let's do the same for every other artist who's done so. Every actor, every musician, but this ONE case, this ONE SINGLE PERSON deserves a fat FUCK YOU.

    Don't go watching Usual Suspects, or anything Roman Polanski related. Also remove all Chris Brown and 21 Savage music from your playlists.

    You can enjoy the product of someone without enjoying the person, get over yourself. Not a cent has to be given to the man, that's the choice of society at large to push their coverage and popularity.

    I'm not sure where you're getting the idea that I, or other people, would support other actors or musicians that have done shit like beating their pregnant partner, but sure thing man.

    He didn't deserve to get gunned down in the street, but I don't have particularly strong feelings about it.

    Nor do I, no one(with exceptions) deserves to die. Not once did I say I supported him, rather that "people need to separate an artist from their art."

    Every piece of art that I make as an artist has apart of me with it, it has the love that I put into it and my own way of doing things.

    Separating an artist from their art is impossible because no matter what way you look at it you are still promoting their work and supporting them. It’s apart of them.

    Other people are better at explaining it hence why I gave you that rating.

    And that's a respectable way to go about things. Some people however, don't do that.

    Frankly, I can't admit that every single piece of music written by a musician, or reel of film done by an actor, or episode recorded, has their blood, sweat, and tears in it. I feel that's a rather subjective take on it. Bill Cosby's accusations doesn't change the fact that he was, and is, the black father of America to many children that grew up watching his show.

    You can take it that by enjoying their work, you're promoting them, but again, that's like saying I won't put another Michael Jackson song on because he (may) have touched little kids, or I shouldn't admit the contributions of James Brown because he robbed a bank. It's a bit subjective, in my opinion and no where near as black and white as some people want to make it.

    E; Feel free to chime in ipod, I'm curious what you're so confused about.

    tentacion with or without the abuse ranked there in my favorite artists. ive always been in to underground so 3-4 years ago seeing tentacion, peep, ski mask, $b, lean, spooky black etc all come up to mainstream popularity from soundcloud beginnings was awesome. very versatile, very young, very misguided individual. sucks that it had to end that way and not in a kodak situation where he gets jailed a few years and comes out for the better

    sad rap is the best rap either way and if you disagree i will fuck

    I don't listen to his music nor do I want to. It's not a matter of taste, it's me not wanting to support someone that beat his pregnant girlfriend.

    I would think you know better of me and can catch that I'm not particularly being serious, but if you wanna play that card, by all means.

    The subject matter as a whole is one I'm looking to discuss because it's something worth talking about. I'm sorry you don't feel this is the right place to do so, and that my lazy attempts at comedy don't hit your funny bone.
