A Repost : seriously , that was the first thing that crossed my mind too ..like why are these ppl RECORDING him dead , and not calling for help or rushin him to the hospital instead ? It’s really sad what happened , as much as I don’t really know about this artist, no one deserves to die like this. #xxxtentacion #rip #ripxxxtentacion #newworld #oblivious #rapper #news #trending #update #follow4follow
