(AllHipHop News) XXXTentacion may have been murdered before he saw the peak of his success, but his family is doing their part to ensure the rapper's legacy lives on.
XXXTentacion's estate just dropped the new "ProudCatOwner" mix featuring standout rapper Rico Nasty.
The song is taken from the deluxe boxset for XXXTentacion's album ?, which hit #1 on Billboard's Top 200.
Unfortunately, he was shot and killed three months after he released ? which went platinum, had over 5.2 billion global streams and clocked sales of 3.2 million global equivalent albums.
"Music saved me as an individual because I was literally haunted by myself. As a person, I was lost. It gave me a purpose. Within that purpose, I became able to display my pain for others," XXXTentacion said in 2017. "Initially, it just felt good. After a while, I wanted to be like a therapist for these kids. Anyone that was even slightly depressed could feel it. I was doing this for them as much as I was for myself. I gave them something to feed on. I gained attention from networking, marketing myself, and being an idiot on the internet, but the cult following is purely because of the songs.”
The rapper, born Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and killed on June 18, 2018, during a botched robbery outside of a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
The latest version of ? will feature all the original songs, as well as the instrumentals, remixes, and a batch of new material.
