A crowd of fans showed up at XXXTENTACION's recent court date, only to leave disappointed. He won't be out for at least a few more months.
The young underground sensation known as XXXTENTACION -- whom A$AP Rocky recently touted as the "hardest rapper in Florida" -- remains in jail, despite rumors that he would be released yesterday. It now seems he won't be released for at least another few months. His manager revealed via Twitter that X's "court date got pushed back to April for no real reason." His 20th birthday is on Monday.
Just talked to X. His court date got pushed back to April for no real reason. Not sure what to say really. His birthday is Monday.— adam22 (@onsomeshit) January 19, 2017
Thanks to all the supporters who went to the court date he said there were so many fans his own family couldn't even get in— adam22 (@onsomeshit) January 19, 2017
If it was as simple as giving them 10k to get him out don't you think I would have done it already? Be serious. https://t.co/2JtSb019QJ— adam22 (@onsomeshit) January 19, 2017
X did appear in court yesterday, as a good number of his fans showed up, and some of them posted pictures of the incarcerated rapper sitting in the stands. It's unclear what happened at the hearing, though it doesn't seem like he will be given any details regarding his potential release until his next court date, which his manager says is scheduled for April.
His manager also said that so many fans showed up to yesterday's court date that X's own family couldn't make it into the courtroom. In the below No Jumper video, the same manager takes a call from X, who tries to explain why the court is holding him longer than expected.
He is currently in jail for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend, reports Pigeons & Planes.
XXXTENTACION has accrued a large Internet fanbase over the past few years while doing very little press. Thus little is known about his story aside from that he hails from Broward County, which is also home to notable South Florida talents like Kodak Black and Robb Bank$.
X has many tracks with millions of plays on SoundCloud. He has an eclectic range of influences, though most all of his work is dark, moody, and psychedelic. Some of his more notable tracks verge on hardcore or heavy metal.
