With the release of a new eight-piece collection, fans now have the opportunity to own the first pieces of XXXTentacion merchandise following the rapper's death last month. X's estate wanted to commemorate the loss of the 20-year-old rapper and put a stop to the abundance of illegal items using Onfroy's likeness that have dominated the marketplace since his fatal shooting on June 18.
A member of X's team penned a detailed message to his Instagram story revealing the reason behind launching XXXTentacion's Memorial Merch. “There are currently over 1 thousand bootleggers around the world selling clothes with X's name and likeness,” the post began. “We wanted to give fans the ability to own and wear a piece of Jah's artistry while also supporting his legacy. So today we are releasing the first collection of XXXTentacion Memorial Merch.”
The collection features a total of eight items, including hoodies, T-shirts, black shorts and the vinyl record of the slain rapper's latest album, ?. The tees come in black or white with three different signature designs and are priced at $35. The official “SAD!” hoodie is the priciest of the merchandise bunch and can be yours for $75 plus shipping costs. Each item is expected to ship in about three to four weeks, according to the online store.
