Lil Uzi Vert Wants To Donate To XXXTentacion’s Family, Nicki Minaj Responds

The death of emerging rapper XXXTentacion may have brought the music industry one step closer to forming a ‘recording artist union’ – of sorts. Philadelphia based recording artist, singer and songwriter, Lil Uzi Vert is using his considerable influence, to organize his celebrity friends for a positive cause. The “Money Longer” hitmaker took to social media asking members of the rap and rock community to donate money XXXTentacion’s family. Uzi, real name Symere Woods, wants the fund to not only aid XXX’s family, but other entertainers lost to gun violence.

He told his almost five million Twitter followers,

Been speaking to @xxxtentacion family. I want to start a fund/foundation to make sure his child and family are well taken care of not just temporary but for life. I don’t care if you didn’t know him he is part of the hip hop / rock community I NEED HELP from celebrities Please.

The 23-year-old rapper urged artist to put aside petty beefs and disagreements for a greater purpose. He noted that rappers are quick to ask for a song feature and he challenged them to be just as quick to reach out to a fellow artists family in the time of need. In another tweet he suggests,

I could handle this Alone but I just wanna make sure if anything happens to me Yall hit my Mommy up like yall hit for features . I want all celebrities to help in this community even if we don’t like or talk to each other I would do it for you.


Clearly, the tragic death of XXXTentacion has many people re-thinking their moves and leaving them more in tough with their own morality. While he wants to help XXX’s family, Lil Uzi also sees the need to build something even bigger. He told the world via social media,

Trust me this fund/foundation will be for all young entertainers and young men and women that die from gun violence etc. Think about your families future I know I am… We can buy chains and watches and cars WE ALSO CAN DONATE AND GIVE AND SUPPORT. Details coming soon…..

Looks like rappers are starting to get on board with Lil Uzi Vert’s great idea. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie showed his support and encouraged his fans to do the same saying,

I’m with this I need all of my fans & xxx fans to be apart of this Sleep in peace young Legend.

California based rapper Kyle is also all in on Lil Uzi Vert’s big idea.

I’m in 100% too! whatever it takes.

Even rap super star Nicki Minaj offered to help. Fresh off her BET Awards performance, the ‘Chung-Li’ rapper tweeted,

I’d be honored to help babe. Hit me w|the info.

There has been a ray of light, after such a tragic loss.
