While performing at the BET Awards, Meek Mill honored the slain rapper by wearing a hoodie bearing XXXTentacion’s image. Jamie Foxx also mourned, saying that black men dying in the street is unacceptable.
Less than a week after XXXTentacionwas gunned down, Meek Mill, 31, made sure to honor the slain 20-year-old rapper at the BET Awards. Meek, who made his first post-prison award show appearance during the June 24 broad, debuted a new song detailing the struggles of black people in America — specifically how black men and women are disproportionately imprisoned. That alone would make Meek’s performance noteworthy, but as he rapped about the struggles, fans saw that he wore a hoodie bearing XXXtentacion’s face. Without saying a word, Meek paid tribute to the young rapper, whose life was cut short.
