The untimely death of rapper XXXTentacion has stormed the hip-hop community and left avid fans of the 20-year old’s work in grief. Memorials, vigils, and tributes for the slain MC have been held from California to Florida to commemorate the late rapper’s life and career. Rappers including Meek Mill, 6ix9ine, 21 Savage, and Lil Yachty broke their silence this past week to pay respect to X’s family and speak their truth about violence and unity.

With familiar production from Otxhello and Danny Wolf, Yung Bans’s farewell to Jah is an emotional release that captures the late rapper’s spirit and charisma.
