XXX could be going away for quite a while
It seemed like XXXTentacion’s legal troubles were coming to an end. The ex-girlfriend he was accused of beating decided to drop the charges and X was ready to move on.
However, X was hauled off to jail yet again and hit with seven new charges for violating the terms of his bond on the arrest. Apparently, prosecutors believe that the women who initially filed charges against X was coerced into dropping the charges by the rapper. The new charges are all related to various degrees of witness tampering and witness harassment. If he’s convicted, he faces decades in prison.
X will remain incarcerated in Miami-Dade County until his trial on the initial charges and the new charges of witness tampering can proceed.
DJ Akademiks is reporting that it wasn’t the seven new charges that got X locked up, but the accidental firestorm he created when he posted info about his court date.
Angry fans got in touch with a judge and frightened them so much that they recused themselves from the case. Ak explained the theory on his Instagram as follows:
“Apparently it wasn’t the 7 new felonies that got #xxxtentacion taken into custody, it was him posting his court info on instagram then his fans supposedly threatened a judge till the judge had to take them selves off the case. Also after thousands of people showed up to the court house. The new judge felt #xxxtentacion was making a mockery of the court and immediately ordered for him to be taken into custody.”
In spite of all the chaos — and the disgusting nature of the charges against him — several of X’s fellow rappers have spoken out in support of the “Look At Me!” star.
Fellow XXL Freshman Ugly God said that he was going to show up to support the rapper in court and encouraged fans to do the same.
“I found out about X and his court date tomorrow because I watch Akademiks’ youtube channel with his ole biscuit head a**,” he wrote on Instagram. “I will be attending tomorrow in support of X, and I advise to anyone in the area if you’re able to you should too. Despite how X is portrayed, he actually has a big heart. When I hear X speak on how he feels and when he gives positive messages to his fans, its actually genuine. Me and him had our disagreements in the past, but I’m rocking with X 100% this time.”
However, the announcement had the exact opposite response that Ugly God had hoped for. He received many threats and had to call off attending the hearing. XXL reports that he walked back his plans in a since-deleted Instagram post.
X’s fellow South Florida upstart Wifisfuneral shared a message of support for X on his Instagram.
“It also breaks my heart seeing you always behind that f*cking cell,” he wrote. “Cause no one in this world gonna ever understand you the way me and stokes do fam. You’re worth in this world is so crazy sometimes dawg cause you g sh*t touch these kid’s heart. Free you. Ion give a f*ck what literally no one says. It’s the moments like these that’s always make me remember why I got MO on me. Free jah.”
