Monday evening, june 18th, XXXTENTACION was brutally murdered at the age of 20. The internet erupted. The youth was stanning for him and was even calling him the 2pac of the new generation. Others were condemning him for his questionable past. What we do know is that nobody deserves to be shot and killed at the age of 20, but what can we learn from XXXTENTACION death and the immense internet reaction that followed?
Call me old-fashioned but I don’t fucks with the ‘chains, Bugatti’s and million dollar rings’ kind of hiphop. I fell in love with the hiphop of Common. The way he used a beautiful woman as a metaphor in his song I Used to Love H.E.R for hiphop, sums up my love for the music.
An ear worm. According to Wikipedia: ‘an catchy piece of music that continuously repeats through your mind after it is no longer playing’. As you can imagine, this can be very annoying. At least I was. Especially when I kept on humming and had no idea what the song was.
