Last night, XXXTentacion won the much-coveted Best New Artist at the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards held right near his home at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach.
The late Floridian rapper beat the likes of Rich The Kid, Lil Baby, Juice WRLD, and Blocboy JB for the honour, and family and friends came on stage to take the plaque in his stead.
And this comes two months after 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome, the fourth person indicted in XXXTentacion’s murder case, was arrested in Broward County, Florida, following suspicion that he was one of two triggermen, alongside Michael Boatwright, who was arrested in early July.
While fans are still waiting for the outcome of the case, many are happy for all the posthumous recognition XXX is getting.
