XXXTentacion Memorial Merchandise Is Available For Pre-Order

Clothing is available for pre-order.

Fans of the late musician XXXTentacion will be able to purchase clothing to memorialize the 20-year-old.

Clothing from shorts to hoodies to T-shirts are available for pre-order on the official XXXTentacion website. The prices range from $35 to $75, and feature simple yet impactful words and designs to commemorate the young man's memory and legacy.

Fans can find a hoodie with the word "Sad!", gym shorts with a question mark on them (for his chart-topping album ?) and T-shirts featuring both his stage name and the word "Gekyume." For $30, eager consumers can also purchase ? on vinyl and digital.

"Sad!" was the first song to posthumously hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart since The Notorious B.I.G's "Mo' Money Mo' Problems" in 1997.

Nearly one month ago (Jun. 18), XXXTentacion (real name Jahseh Onfroy) was shot and killed outside of a motorcycle dealership in his native Florida. Officials arrested Dedrick Williams and charged him with first-degree murder, and Robert Allen was recently named as a second person of interest in the musician's untimely and unexpected death.

X's open-casket memorial service was held on Jun. 27, and thousands of fans and a few musicians came to pay their respects.

Yumm: Chick-fil-A Considers Adding Vegan Options To Menu

Chick-fil-A will jump into the growing market of vegan fast food with the addition of vegan options to their menu.

Speaking with Business Insider Tuesday (May 14), Senior Director of Menu Development Amanda Norris has looked into the idea of more meat-free options for several years. The only meat-free options on the current menu are their fruit cups and signature waffle fries.

“We’re definitely aware, and I would say we’re always interested in, what’s happening in food,” Norris said. “Specifically … a vegetarian option or a vegan option is something we’re looking at, we’re thinking about, and have (done) some (research and development).”

Norris added it normally takes about 18 to 24 months for a new item to appear on the menu so the idea of a vegan Chick-fil-A sandwich won't be available just yet.  "I think it's good. People like a lot of different choices," Chick-fil-A customer Carl Smith told Atlanta's WSB-TV, where the food chain was first created. "As long as they keep their standard favorites, I think having more choices is good, too."

Chick-fil-A is just one fast food giant who is jumping on the vegan wave. KFC recently announced plans to sell vegan chicken sandwiches while Burger King, Carl's Jr., Del Taco and Taco Bell have vegan options.

But it's hard not to credit the popularity of Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat for giving customers healthier options. It's also secured a few bags. CNBC reports demand for meat substitutes made a cool $1.44 billion in 2018 with Euromonitor International predicting the number will reach $2.5 billion by 2023.

Impossible Foods also announced Monday (May 13) their funding has reached $300 million. The company partnered with the likes of restaurant chains like Counter Burger and White Castle. Even Ghostface Killah has shared an appreciation for the Impossible burger.

"It's dope. The first time I tried it was in Brooklyn. You could have sworn you were eating regular meat," he told VIBE in 2018. "I had to really ask them and they said, "Yes, it's really a plant-based food." It's the best plant-based vegan food that I've ever tasted, ever."

Rihanna To Collaborate With LVMH For Fenty Luxury Line

According to reports, Rihanna will be the first woman in history to create an original brand with LVMH, who will be collaborating with the mogul on a new luxury Maison.

Per a press release from LVMH, the Maison–called Fenty– will be created with Rihanna's vision in mind, and will release "ready to wear, shoes and accessories" in the Spring of 2019. She will be the first woman of color to head an LVMH Maison, and Fenty is the first new fashion house for the group since 1987.

“Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us," Rih said in a statement. "Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.”

“Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real CEO and a terrific leader," Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, added. "She naturally finds her full place within LVMH. To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the Group resources. I am proud that LVMH is leading this venture and wish it will be a great success.”

Rihanna took to Instagram to confirm the news, writing that it was a "big day for the culture."
