    Interested to hear how XXXtentacion's body of work touched his fans, or helped them through tough times. Share how his music spoke to you, provide lyrics where possible. I understand he had a Cult of Positivity going on, and I'm interested in hearing more about it.

    RIP XXXtentacion.

    I never listened to his music before he died but his song sad is OK. I don't know how to feel about it, I think it's an OK song. But I'm very interested in seeing how he affected people. His instagram has 12 year old white girls saying RIP, that's strange. Most of his music was dark.

    I thought he made good music, but I could never necessarily relate to it... as I’ve never suffered from anxiety or depression. I do see the level his music reached with several of my friends though, and I’m thankful he could help them get through some things - whether it was mostly his music or not, he still affected them.

    After I beat up my girlfriend I told everyone I was sad but I was going to try really hard to be positive. It really helped me.

    You are pathetic for even talking about this idiot. Dead or not. Just one look at him is enough to see what kind of moron he was.

    Don't know about the music, but when he beat a suspected gay man and smeared the man's blood all over his face and under his nails...that definitely helped me through some tough times. Very positive guy.

    I'm just disappointed he didn't live long enough to get sentenced to a few decades in prison. I was really looking forward to that.

    Thought I'd give some of his fans a chance to tell me about this supposed 'cult of positivity' but something tells me X was just trying to dig himself out of a hole. Some PR, supposed donations to women's charities etc...all bs, just the last ditch efforts of a young man trying desperately to shift attention away from the horrendous crimes which gave the world a glimpse of the awful piece of s--- he really was.

    imagine trashing a dead kid who tried to turn his life around after being a mentally f----- up child. I didn't know people were unworthy of second chances. i guess next time someone like rich the kid forces his wife to get an abortion for the FOURTH TIME, we should just forgive him bc he didn't touch her. oh wait he did beat her. and oh wait, y'all still support that r-----ed individual. there just isn't any pics for y'all to focus on lmao

    Imagine breaking into someone's home with a loaded weapon and assaulting someone with it.

    Imagine beating up a "suspected" gay man and smearing his blood all over yourself.

    Imagine beating up woman(deny this all you want, but imagine being JAILED for witness tampering in the woman beating case, yes, actions of an innocent man).

    Now, imagine defending this guy.

    Makes no sense. I'm a s-----y person because my friends don't beat up girls? And gay people? And do armed home robberies? If I had a friend that did any of the above, he wouldn't be my friend anymore. But, if someone beat up your mother, as long as he's "sorry" You would be friends with him still right? And I'm the s-----y person?

    No, it's obviously not a good thing. But when you act like that to so many people, is it surprising? Not really.
