Unless you have been underneath a rock or something you know that Controversial US rapper XXXTentacion [Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (real name)], is dead. He was shot dead, Police say.

He was out bike shopping and an SUV pulled up and led off in his vehicle. Now there are tons of videos surfacing showing his lifeless body in a car and things like that nobody knows really who did it. Now a lot of people especially in the Christian community didn’t rock with him because it seemed that he was into a lot of demonic things. He was very depressed and different things like that. But what does this have to do with Christian hip hop? You may say a lot of people in the Christian community were shouting out their condolences.

It really does seem to me to actually hear about him I mean a man was only 20 years old and he has now lost his life. But we have Christian hip hop artist kind of putting out their thoughts on this. One in particular was Ruslan says “I’m seeing a wide spectrum of responses to XXX. The most alarming is people pushing back those mourning because he had a history of violence and abuse. Feeling loss, shock, or mourning doesn’t dismiss their negative actions. You can feel upset by both. But a life was cut short. There’s so much to unpack, so many lessons from him attempting to turn a new leaf to the circumstances surrounding his death to why a dozen people stood around filming instead of maybe pulling him out of the car and putting pressure on his wounds. All of this is super sad. I enjoyed XXX but couldn’t support him because of the abuse case sat through 17 +? Impressed with his vulnerability and musicality. I saw a huge potential but was conflicted why/how he got on. His passing hurts and I’m honestly in shock. Does it mean that I am mourning an abuser?”

There was a lot of people in CHH saddened by this. I think the biggest thing is of how old he was. I mean he was a kid. However, Ruslan just kind of putting the raw facts out there like mad, sad that he’s passed yet it doesn’t dismiss a lot of wrong that he was doing not saying in any sense that he deserved what he got. A lot of people really wouldn’t say certain things off the top. He had a lot of support but there was a lot of people not supporting him because of his past situations yet they’re coming out now and are saddened by.

So, does a person’s past matter when they pass. Does it affect how you deal with the situation. Whether it be a family member/friend/distant relative just because somebody that you don’t really know well?

What do you think?
