xxxtentacion public memorial

A week after the tragic death of XXXTentacion (Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy), who was shot and killed in Deerfield Beach, Florida at the age of 20, the family of Onfroy has just announced a public memorial and viewing for the late rapper.

Scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, the open casket fan memorial will be held at Onfroy’s birthplace of Broward County, Florida, and will take place from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST at the Florida Panther’s stadium, BB&T Center.

The Instagram post caption also reads, “Fans come out and say your final goodbyes, it will be your last chance to see him.” In addition, according to the flyer, “Any person found with any device of the sort will be immediately turned around at gate or escorted out and will not be permitted on the premises.”

It’s also worth noting that XXXTentacion’s “Sad!,” which broke Spotify’s single day stream record last week, now tops the Billboard Hot 100, jumping from the 52nd spot to number one for its first week atop the chart.

According to Stereogum, he is the first artist to top the Hot 100 posthumously in a lead role since the Notorious B.I.G., with “Mo Money Mo Problems,” in 1997.
