J. Cole and Kanye West took to Twitter to pay their respect to XXXTENTACION. Wyatt Rubin, 21, was one of them. "F***, no." In that profile, Ayala claimed she had been harassed by fans of Onfroy, telling Hitt: "I can't even go to the mall or Walmart without being noticed and eyed down". "He was an inspiration to me". I didn't really fuck with all of his music but I really love that #f%cklove record that he did with trippie red. "It really is terrible that he was so young and that he didn't get to live up to the full potential that he had".
