ik heb al zijn tattoes op mijn armen getekend
XXtentacion had great songs i was very sad and disappointed that the only person on earth expressed all those feeling and told the truth is now gone. I can’ t wait for his son to grow up and bring back his songs. But let me tell you something if no one brings his songs back and speaks the truth or spread positive comments around i will do it myself. im only 12 and i already gave up on myself so ill get the same tattoos when im old enough especially NUMB.
Xxx rest in paradise

X was deeply an amazing human being. The way he expressed himself through his music is absolutely and utterly amazing. He made such an impact on his fans life’s. I truly believe he was not from this planet. I pray for his family and everyone who was close to him we lost an absolute legend to soon. May he Rest In Piece.
King X might still be alive in the pic of his dead body in the car he had a a lot of missing tattoos like the clock and some forehead tattoos. but idk if its real but still R.I.P King X
