    Pitchfork:


    On August 25, Florida rapper XXXTentacion released his debut album, 17, which entered at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The music arrived amid online debate over the criminal case against the 19-year-old, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy. Last October, prosecutors charged him with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering. […]

    Now, Pitchfork has obtained a 142-page transcript of testimony by XXXTentacion’s reported victim, delivered over two and a half hours in January at a public defender’s office in Miami.

    I don't know how to word this but this transcends being sexual assault. This is truly evil behavior.

    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    This is really disturbing. And people still buy his music despite the fucked up guy he is.

    Anyone who reads this then willingly listens to a second of this guy's music can honestly just leave this website and never come back. Or, at the very least, make yourself known so I can block you. Any conscious engagement with this guy's art is a declaration of support in my eyes.

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Damn there are some people on my Twitter feed talking about this guy's music excitedly, including Kendrick Lamar. Never heard his music before, but definitely won't be trying it out now. Scary when guys like this get famous as it will just make him think his choices have been fine or, worse, believe that they contribute to his success.

    He's pretty damn young so hopefully he gets properly punished and learns to not be a piece of shit.

    I mean this has been pretty widely known for a long time. Why anyone has chosen to promote/work with this pos is insane to me. Should be an obvious choice to blackball this guy from the industry forever.

    it was all a dream Prestigious

    dude is trash, his music sucks. lyrics straight from 2003 emo livejournals. like how can you look at this artwork and not cringe? "'The Naked Truth' hence the nude photos" Thanks dude for spelling it out, I would have never figured it out on my own... disappointed in kendrick on the cosign.

    Feel like Pitchfork shouldn't have reviewed this.

    Fuck this dude. He's huge with my kids and it's always kind've horrifying to get into conversations about abuse against women with them and hear some of the viewpoints they have.

    Listened to this guy last night for the first time as two guys at a festival recommended him to me. I thought it was shit.

    Now I find out this. I regret even giving him a moment of my time.
     
  17. That testimony is fucking horrifying. Hope he goes away for a long, long time.

    Had to skim through the article since it was too horrifying to read in full. I hope this demented sick fuck goes to jail for a very long time.
