Trippie Redd Dyes His Hair Like XXXTentacion in Memory of Late Rapper
Trippie Redd and XXXTentacion's relationship may have been full of ups and downs when X was still alive but following the "Sad!" rapper's death, Trippie is paying tribute to his friend by dyeing his hair.
The Canton, Ohio native showed off his XXXTentacion-inspired hairstyle in his Instagram Story on June 20, dying his hair half red and half black. "We are 1 now @xxxtentacion," he wrote on the pic. The rapper also showed off another look on Instagram, which was inspired by X's signature half-black and half-blond dreadlocks.
Trippie and XXXTentacion previously collaborated on the 2017 song "Fuck Love," but their relationship soured after that. Things between the two seemed to appear better in March after X gave Trippie a shoutout during a benefit concert.
The "Dark Knight Dummo" rapper showed love back to X, writing on Instagram, "I love you too bro thanks for this it takes a real man to speak on shit and really apologize for their actions u a smart ass guy just remember I'm always in your corner and I also apologize for anything I've said about you I don't hate u zzz @xxxtentacion hml."
But things between the two went south again in May when Trippie claimed X stole his style, as well as Ski Mask The Slump God's. "X the same type of nigga though," the Ohio native said. "Fuck X, too. He a bitch, too. He stole Ski Mask [The Slump God] style. He stole my style. He just collided with his shit. All you nigga's bitches, bro. All you nigga's hoes."
XXXTentacion was shot and killed on June 18 in Deerfield Beach, Fla., shortly after leaving RIVA Motorsports. According to authorities, X was approached by two armed suspects and at least one of the men opened fire, hitting the rapper. While one suspect was arrested on Wednesday (June 20), TMZ reports there are two more arrest warrants out for suspects, but that is yet to be confirmed by authorities.
