AceShowbiz - This is truly devastating. Nearly one year after XXXTentacion was gunned down, his friend and fellow rapper C Glizzy was shot in the head outside a convenience store in Pompano Beach, Florida over the weekend, WPLG Local 10 reported.
Following the incident, his mother and brother attempted to rush him to the nearby Broward Health North Hospital, but they lost control of their vehicle and crashed into a wall on a highway exit ramp. Despite the incident, they still managed to take Glizzy to the hospital, where he underwent an intense surgery to remove the bullet from his head.
His mom told reporters that Glizzy was "heavily sedated and not talking right now." However, she was optimistic that her son would survive. As of Monday morning, June 17, the rapper remained hospitalized as his family asked for prayers to his Instagram followers.
The Broward Sheriff's Office is still investigating the case.
Last year, in the same month, XXXTentacion was shot multiple times after two armed men reached inside his vehicle and stole a small Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000. He was then transported to Broward Health North Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An open casket service for him took place at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida on June 27, while his private funeral took place on June 28. Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty and Erykah Badu were among the attendees.
One month later, four men were indicted on first-degree murder and armed robbery charges in relation to the case.
XXXTentacion's first posthumous album, "Skins", was released on December 7, 2018, with its lead single "Bad!" making its way out on November 9. Featuring appearances from Travis Barker of Blink-182 and Kanye West, the album received mixed to negative reviews from critics. Despite that, "Skins" was a commercial success as it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200. It became his second No. 1 album.
