Lil Tay also revealed some charitable work they had planned in an apparent attempt to repackage her brand.
“As a father figure, when I don’t have one, you were here, FaceTiming me and calling me for hours when I’m down, 3 hours ago you announced the Charity event we were going to throw, we had everything set up, I can’t believe this, the evil in the world, This isn’t good Bye. I love you best friend. I Love you, X.”
X‌XXT‌enta‌cion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was f‌at‌all‌y s‌hot as he was leaving a motorcycle dealership in south Florida on Monday. The rapper, who rose to prominence after the release of his debut album in 2017, was facing 15 fe‌lon‌y charges at the time of his d‌e‌a‌th, including ag‌gr‌ava‌ted ba‌tte‌ry of a pregnant woman, BBC reports.
Based on the rapper’s last Instagram story, he was planning a charity event this weekend in Florida. The post, however, did not include Lil Tay’s involvement. 
“Our Charity event! How could this be, please come back X,” she said. “Please. Your soul is in my heart. We planned this Charity for a month. Xxxtentacion x Lil Tay Charity. I will make it happen.”
Lil Tay’s social media personality was recently exposed to be a trained act engineered by her management team composed of her mom Angela Tian, older brother Jason Tian, social media advisors Diomi Cordero and Alex Goller Gelbard.
Her posts and videos vanished from her Twitter and Instagram earlier this month shortly after a video of her smoking hookah emerged online.
