American rapper, Jermaine Cole popularly known as J.Cole, recalls the conversation he had with late American rapper XXXtentacion over FaceTime for a couple of hours in February.
Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy A.K.A. XXXtentacion was shot dead on the 18th of June at only 20 years-old will leaving a motorcycle dealership in Florida.
J.Cole sat down with Billboard, discussing his limited relationship with the rapper:
“I spoke to him on FaceTime one day in February for, like three hours, His management reached out to Ibrahim Hamad, Cole’s manager, and asked if he could FaceTime me or call me. It was a super intense conversation. He left a mark on me, just as a person.”
When Cole was quizzed on what the conversation was about, he said:
“He was talking about spiritually and mentally, and that was intense because I was like, ‘Huh? I’m not on no level,’” the rapper said.
He then continued:
“He was praising me while also saying he was going to achieve whatever it is he felt that I had. I’ve dealt with mentally ill people in my life before, many of them. And right away, I notice that this kid is super passionate and smart, but I could also see that he was so deep in his mind.”
When Cole heard about the abuse allegations levelled against the rapper, he hoped he could help the young rapper down the line.
“Because anybody who would do the shit that he did… Hurt people hurt people, I’ve walked through prisons and talked to these dudes who got life. They took someone’s life at 16 or 17 years old. You haven’t had the chance to process your trauma at that age. I’ma be sympathetic to a kid who has clearly been through so much fucked up shit that he inflicted this on someone else.”
