XXXTentacion celebrates his 20th birthday in style.
From XXL Freshman Class member to a man ensconced in some pretty serious legal trouble, XXXTentacion has experienced both the highest of highs and the lowest of lows in his short time in the hip-hop spotlight. The phenom is no longer one of the teenage variety, as he celebrated his 20th birthday yesterday. In true XXX fashion, his birthday cake featured a design that was sure to get people talking.
Posting a video to his Instagram stories, the emcee showed off his born day dessert, which came in the shape of a skull with a purple-colored mohawk of sorts. To top it all off, the skull's jaw was filled with diamond-encrusted teeth, which he says in the video are real bling and not just super-styled accouterments. Talk about ringing in another year with a bang.
Check out the entire clip below.
XXXTentacion is doing his best to repair his public in the eyes of rap fans as of late. He recently gave out some toys, video game consoles, guitars and other gifts to children who are in foster care at the moment, with one tweet, in particular, helping the gesture go viral. The perception surrounding the young rapper, at least for the moment, seems to be drastically more positive than it has been in the past.
Do you think XXXTentacion has big things coming musically in 2018? Will we see another full-length album from him this year? Sound off in the comments and let us know if you're excited for new material from the young Florida native.
