Fans, family and friends of XXXTentacion are still digesting the rapper’s murder in his home state of Florida on Monday (June 18).
According to TMZ, suspects in XXX’s murder are two black males wearing hoodies, with the shooter wearing a red mask. Shortly after the ? rapper was gunned down, Delray Beach, FL. rappers Soldier Kidd and Soldier JoJo were posing with a red mask as well as brandishing guns, leading people to believe that they were associated with X’s murder.
Both, JoJo and Kidd have denied involvement in XXXTentacion’s death, and took to Instagram to proclaim their innocence.
“I’ve been seeing a lot of comments, I been seeing a lot of thangs going on in social media, saying I had something to do with XXXTentacion’s passing, Kidd said. “Man, listen, we all got love for Florida, nigga. I got love for bro. I ain’t even know who the man was.”
“We out here handling business. We out here gettin’ money, bro. We don’t got no time for none of this shit goin’ on,” he continued. “But listen, all my condolences go to the man’s family and what not. But I just gotta get on the ‘gram and let ya’ know what it is, you feel me? I ain’t had nothing to do with it but I’ma stay positive, keep my head up.”
JoJo also used social media to voice his innocence by claiming he din’t know the rapper nor did he listen to X’s music before adding that he respects the “Look at Me” rapper.
According to a Broward Country police report, X was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Fla. shortly before 4 p.m. when he was approached by two armed men. The Broward Sheriff’s Office says at least one of the men shot X and both suspects fled in a dark-color SUV.
It’s still unclear as to whether or not Kidd and JoJo were entangled in a beef with XXXTentacion.
