070 Shake's manager YesJulz stepped up and had her 1AM company help carry out what would be XXXTentacion's final wish, putting on a charity event in honor him in his home state Florida on Sunday (June 24). A Helping Hand ended up giving out over 1,000 lunches at Charles R. Drew Elementary in Miami, Fla.
“We fed 1000 people today in XXXTentacion's] name. The kids he used to come & visit were asking about him & a few were even inspired to hop on the mic! Jah was always about Florida talent, he would’ve loved this #AHelpingHand,” Julz wrote on Twitter following the event on Sunday.
After handing out more than 1,000 bagged lunches, attendees united for a candlelight vigil and prayer in honor the slain rapper, born Jahseh Onfroy. Fans are invited to pay their final respects for an open-casket public memorial at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., on Wednesday (June 27) starting at noon.
In light X's tragic death, “SAD!” has vaulted atop the Billboard Hot 100, posthumously notching XXXTentacion his first No. 1 record.
