The death of Florida rapper XXXtentacion brought about the awareness that the younger generation needs guidance and support now more than ever. His death also shined a light on his talent as a songwriter, as well as to remember that he was a 20-year-old who now has a family left to grieve over his untimely death. Which is why it was noble for Lil Pump and Smokepurpp to bring the late rapper’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, on stage this past Sunday (July 29). Purpp and Pump elected to perform XXXtentacion’s “Sad” in tribute to the slain rapper, and brought Bernard on stage in his honor.
Sad! Posthumously became his first number one single, joining The Notorious B.I.G, John Lennon, and others as artists who hit number one while deceased.
