Pitchfork has obtained a secret recording in which late rapper XXXTentacion admitted to viciously attacking an ex-girlfriend and stabbing nine people.
Recall that the rapper who was shot and killed in June was awaiting trial for a 2016 domestic abuse case involving a former girlfriend. He was charged by the Miami-Dade County state attorney’s office with aggravated battery of a pregnant victim, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering, accusations the alleged victim detailed in a January 2017 deposition. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and maintained his innocence up until his death.
Now, Pitchfork has the audio where he confessed to those crimes and more around October 8, 2016 when he was arrested.
He said: “I put my source of happiness in another person, which was a mistake initially, right? But she fell through on every occasion until now. Until I started fucking her up bruh. I started fucking her up because she made one mistake. And from there, the whole cycle went down. Now she’s scared. That girl is scared for her life. Which I understand.”
He detailed what to the alleged victim, saying “I will kill that bitch if she play with me.”
He further referred to a stabbing incident in Deerfield Beach, Florida, saying, “I’m on [Miami] New Times for stabbing, how many people they put in the news? They said three, it was eight.”
He also admitted to stabbing a former manager, an incident that he was arrested for in Orange County, Florida, on July 14, 2016, before being released on bond shortly afterward. “She’s seen this shit,” XXXTentacion said. “She know.”
Further disturbing comments he made include explaining his violent behaviour to an unknown man, saying: “You ever seen somebody get their tongue cut out? … You ever seen somebody get raped? … You ever seen somebody try to kill your mom in front of you? Every night you go to sleep and you remember what you seen and you remember how it felt and you remember that horrible feeling in your soul. Nobody can comfort you. It’s something I gotta deal with.”
His team had yet to address this as at press time.
