XXXTentacion has had an interesting journey, both artistically and individually. As many know, the rapper's past is dark to say the least, and many were quick to write f the Floridian rapper as both volatile and troubled. Yet it would appear that the young talent has had an epiphany sorts. Coming f a sobering trial, X has since vowed to become a better man, learn from his mistakes, and establish himself as a role model for the youth; a real life redemption arc. As it stands, X's journey into the light has been a successful one, and his charitable work has not gone unnoticed. Yesterday, X performed at his Helping Hand event, in order to benefit the survivors the tragic Parkland shooting.
During the concert, X performed several tracks from his recent ? album, including a crowd assisted rendition "Changes." Yet one the more interesting moments came before he queued up "Fuck Love," f his breakout album 17. He didn't exactly say Trippie's name, but like Dennis from It's Always Sunny might say, the implication was strong.
"I was not a good person but I've been trying my best to change myself," said X, prior to launching into "Fuck Love." "I got a song with this amazing artist, bro. There is an amazing artist that I made the song with, and I know that this motherfucker probably hates me for whatever reason he has, but I don't care. I'm taking this as a chance to say, I love you and I love the world, bro."
Check out some footage from the concert below, including X's insane stage dive, "Changes," and more. It's hard to say whether or not we'll ever see X and Trippie collaborate again, but we can only hope.
