XXXTentacion shared some powerful words with 6ix9ine before his tragic death.
Tekashi was contacted by XXX while he was serving time in prison on racketeering charges. During an Instagram Live session this week, the “Trollz” rapper shared the contents of X’s final DM to him. “When you get out, move smarter, more patient, and more relaxed,” read one message. In a second DM, he added, “Yo, be safe, OK? Never let your guard down.”
6ix9ine took X’s advice to heart. “X was looking out for me, telling me, ‘Yo, move smarter.’ Matter of fact, X said this: ‘Don’t let your guard down,'” he said.

His cautionary words hit home for 6ix9ine, who beefed up his security, saying other rappers may have been alive if they had done the same thing. “Same thing with Pop Smoke, Nipsey Hussle. You don’t move with security, you’re pussy. You need to change the fu**in’ game,” he said. “If you with security doesn’t make you pussy, it makes you smart. If X, who’s my friend, woulda had security, we would’ve had a legend in the making still living.”
6ix9ine is currently on house arrest, which is slated to end in the next month. “Picture the noise I’m gonna make when I’m outside,” he recently told fans.
XXXTentacion was shot and killed in June 2018 as he was leaving a motorcycle dealership in Pompano Beach, Fla. A grand jury indicted four men on first-degree murder and armed robbery charges in connection with the crime.
