Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, better known as the rapper XXXTentacion, passed away in mid-June this year, but he made sure that everyone knew he had a baby on the way. The identity of his girlfriend is a mystery to everyone but his family. His mother shared a picture of an ultrasound on Instagram, captioning it, “He left us a final gift,” though the picture has been removed by Instagram since. XXXTentacion has been coming out with music even after his death. He’s released songs with other passed rappers such as Lil Peep, a rapper who passed away last year. They had unreleased recordings that their teams worked on together to release to the public. The rapper died due to a shooting in Deerfield Beach, Florida; due to a gun wound at a motorcycle dealership. He was only 20 years old.
In August, the rapper’s mom, Cleopatra Bernard, again took to Instagram, with a picture of his mysterious girlfriend’s baby bump and she revealed the baby’s gender. “It’s a boy!” Bernard captioned.
Bernard held a baby shower, on Saturday, November 24, for her unborn grandson. Showing pictures on Instagram, there is a numerous amount of pictures with people wearing bracelets with the words, “BABY X”. Bernard also revealed the baby’s name, Gekyume. Gekyume is a word the rapper made up before he was fatally shot in Florida. According to X, the word means “a “different state” or “next” universe of thought.” [Mentioned in an Instagram live]. The word is used various times in his “SAD!” music video.
Family, friends, and millions of fans are happy and excited about the birth of X’s baby. The world is ready to meet the baby boy, Gekyume.
