If you have not discovered XXXTentacion for his music yet, you should at least hear about his story.
At the age of only 19, XXXTentacion succeeded in putting thiunderground rap scene at its feet. A native of Broward County, Florida, from which rapper Kodak Black has also emerged, the well-named XXXTentacion is also well known on YouTube for his videos, flirting sometimes with the retro style of the early 90s than with a current astonishment style. And it was precisely that style that he claims Drake stole. Listen to the excerpts of this unreleased song partly played live in Amsterdam by Drake a few days ago and of the track “Look At Me” by XXXTentacion. Obviously, doubt arises.
In any case, the same XXXTentacion is convinced that the Six God stole his flow, and announced on Twitter (before deleting his tweets):I’m not gonna twitter rap with niggas for stealing my flow, I slap niggas don’t come to Florida. It’s funny how the industry let this pussy Nigga sit at the top for so long, all y’all suck kill yourselves, Meh dun chat.” Even though it would not be X himself who would have tweeted, he is actually incarcerated at the moment. Drake, on his side, disputes any idea of plagiarism.
