There have been many comparisons since the death of young 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion who was murdered June 18th while leaving a motorcycle dealership. Now former Roc-A-Fella CEO, Dame Dash, is speaking out on the death of the young Florida artist and has stated he will be the Tupac or Biggie of this generation.
In a new interview with AllHipHop Dame would be asked about the death of X in which he would respond, “You know the sad thing about it is, the last couple days, I was like, ‘Yo, hip-hop is going through that phase.’ In my generation, it got kind of violent. Then Biggie and Pac died and it kind of calmed down. And then I remember Wiz’s generation, I liked it because it was like other parts of the country were working together, like Curren$y and Smoke DZA.”
He would continue by saying, “It’s just funny how things go in cycles, and you could just feel it. Actually, I got it on tape. I was like, ‘Yo it don’t feel right. It’s going to take somebody to get killed, for everybody to cool out.’ And it’s sad that it was him. But [X is] definitely going to be looked at from this 15 to 25-year-old generation as Tupac and Biggie.”
