DJ Scheme Says Kodak Black Sent XXXTentacion’s Son $50,000
Although there isn't too much known about Kodak Black's friendship with the late XXXTentacion, it's clear that the two had a great deal of love for each other while X was alive. According to DJ Scheme, who used to DJ for the late rapper, Kodak's latest bit of support for X came in the form of a gift given to the rapper's 5-month-old son, Gekyume.
"Hey man shout out to @KodakBlack1k for sending 50 fucking bands to Gekyume," Scheme wrote in a Tuesday evening (June 18) tweet. "That is a real fucking human being."
It's hard to say when this alleged gift of $50,000 was given, but considering that today is the one-year anniversary of X's tragic death, there's a good chance it was sent recently. In a statement to XXL, Scheme says he's appreciative of Kodak's gesture.
"A lot of people said they wanted to help out, but I don’t know how many actually did," Scheme says. "But what I do know is Kodak Black is an amazing person for this. Honestly, we could've just not said anything, but I felt like I had to because for someone who is going through so much already, to reach out and help out my brother's son... Shit, that’s a real-ass human being."
Before X was shot and killed last year, he and Kodak collaborated on Kodak's 2017 track, "Roll in Peace." On the song, X even gives Kodak a shoutout. On his latest album, Dying to Live, Kodak pays tribute to X with "Malcolm X.X.X.," a song that draws parallels between the slain 20-year-old and polarizing activist Malcolm X.
Kodak is currently sitting behind bars in federal custody as he awaits the start of his trial for federal gun charges.
