XXXTENTACION's lawyer suggested the rapper beef up his security ahead of his untimely death.
It's been a week since XXXTENTACION's untimely death. The rapper was shot dead as he left an upscale motorcycle store in Deerfield Beach. Despite his increasing fame, he didn't seem to feel the need to have security around him at all time, especially on his stomping ground. X's lawyer, David Bogenschutz, recently spoke to a Florida and revealed that he suggested the rapper increase his security detail prior to his death.
Bogenschutz spoke to Sun-Sentinel earlier today about XXXTENTACION's death. He explained that ahead of X's death, he suggested the rapper increase the security detail around him as he gained more fame. He said that X refused to carry a firearm on him.
“We talked about him needing security, that he was past the point of being a kid making melodies on a street corner,” Bogenschutz said.
Bogenschutz seemed to take a personal liking to X as they worked together. He said that X was making the right moves to change his life around.
“I took a personal interest in him,” Bogenschutz said. “I liked him. He was a kid, 19, when I first met him.”
Bogenschutz revealed that after X was off of house arrest, he was granted permission by the court to travel to recording studios and was getting ready to play shows in Europe.
"The incredibly sad thing about this is this kid had turned his life around since November," he said. "It was amazing, the turnaround. He was on a real upward track."
XXXTENTACION's family will be holding a fan memorial for him tomorrow, June 27th from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
