Lil Uzi Vert wants to start a fund for XXXTentacion’s family

“I want to start a fund/foundation to make sure his child and family are well taken care of not just temporary but for life,” Uzi wrote on Twitter (after his passing, XXXTentacion’s mother Cleopatra Bernard revealed that the rapper’s girlfriend was pregnant).

Stars like Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, and Ski Mask The Slump God expressed their support soon after Uzi’s initial tweet. “I could handle this Alone but I just wanna make sure if anything happens to me Yall hit my Mommy up like yall hit for features,” Uzi wrote


Florida man, Dedrick Devonshay Williams, charged with murder in XXXTentacion’s killing

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives believe the 20-year-old rapper, who was born and raised in Broward’s city of Plantation, was the victim of a targeted crime during a planned ambush, records show according to TMZ.

Deputies arrested Dedrick Devonshay Williams, who wasn’t the shooter, on Wednesday, and they are searching for two other suspects. Williams, according to the report, was driving the SUV blocking the rapper from leaving.

Williams, 22, is facing a first-degree murder charge and is being held without bond.

“We are hoping that we make further arrests as we progress,” Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday.

Deputies reportedly have surveillance video of the rapper inside the RIVA Motorsports dealership in Deerfield Beach, while the suspected gunmen walked inside, left the store and waited for him to walk out.

After the rapper left the dealership on Monday afternoon, detectives believe the driver of an SUV blocked him, and two men jumped out of the passenger side of an SUV armed with guns, according to records TMZ had access to.

There was a “brief struggle” during the “possible robbery” before the shooting, the BSO records show, according to TMZ. Deputies said the men removed a bag from his car and fled after shooting him. He was shot about 4 p.m. and doctors at Broward Health North declared him dead about 5:30 p.m.

Eric Andre Criticizes Hip-Hop Community for Promoting Kodak Black and XXXTentacion

As mentioned by Andre, both rappers have a troubled history with violence, particularly against women. XXXTentacion was alleged to have strangled and beat up his pregnant girlfriend in October 2016, a situation that has presented a number of legal complications in the months since. Black has an even bigger rap sheet, having been accused of raping a woman in South Carolina on top of various charges on separate occasions around his home state of Florida.

Andre wasn’t done there, and continued to go in on the two for their obvious shortcomings. He pleaded with his followers to treat sexism more seriously, whether it was tied to hip-hop music or not.

After bringing the rant to a close, Andre let his followers know that this sort of commentary wouldn’t become a regular thing, and joked about the type of tweets they could expect moving forward.

The rant caught the eye of at least one of the parties in question, and prior to deleting the tweet, XXXTentacion himself responded to Andre, appearing to deny the allegations that have dogged him over the last year.

But if he was looking to dispute his problematic reputation with women, XXXTentacion blew that opportunity before he ever responded to Andre’s criticism, posting a graphic tweet that he would also delete.
