Date of birth: January 26, 2019

XXXTentacion’s life was very short; nevertheless, he left someone instead of him. On January 26, 2019, 7 months after his father’s death, Gekyume Onfroy was born.

Gekyume is a son of the late hip hop artist and his girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez. XXXTentacion’s mother wrote in social media, that his girlfriend was pregnant with his baby three days after the musician’s murder. In August that very year Jenesis publicized the gender of the kid – it was a boy. The small creature entered this world three days after his father’s 21st birthday. He was named “Gekyume”, and that word was invented by his late dad. It meant “a different universe” on his father’s language.

Who are XXXTentacion parents?

Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy (father)

Three days after the rapper’s murder, his father Dwayne released an emotional video. In the video, he opened up, that he was mourning his son’s death for 7 days, and after that, he was going to celebrate his life and his achievements.

Obviously, Mr. Onfroy is proud of his son, but it’s hard to tell, that he put lots of efforts to bring him up and to develop his talent for music.

Dwayne wasn’t the part of his son’s life, because he was a criminal and spent many years in jail. He didn’t raise his son, and probably, they were not so closely-knitted.

Cleopatra Bernard (mother)

Date of birth: February 15, 1980

XXXTentacion’s mother’s name is Cleopatra Bernard. The woman gave birth to her son at the tender age of 18. She had no opportunity to raise her kid (the woman had no regular occupation), so she left Jahseh with his grandmother Collette Jones.

Jahseh was quite troubled as a child, but obviously, he loved his mom. He appeared in the correctional facility for the first time at a tender age of 6. Then the boy stabbed her mother’s boyfriend when the latter one tried to hurt Cleopatra.

Later she sent her son to a shelter, and there Jahseh taught to play several musical instruments. Cleopatra fueled her son’s interest in music, and later she became his biggest fan and admired XXXTentacion’s success in social media. In 2017 she attended BET Awards ceremony alongside her son and she met lots of modern hip hop stars there.

No need to say, that Cleopatra was frustrated by her son’s death. Now she helps to care about XXXTentacion’s son (and her grandson) Gekyume.

XXXTentacion siblings

Arianna Drew Onfroy (older half-sister)

Date of birth: June 24, 1996

Arianna is XXXTentacion’s older half-sister from the paternal side. She resides in West Palm Beach, FL. She is currently single. Ari had cordial relationships with her brother Jahseh and mourned him after his death. As she writes on social media, she misses him till now.

Aiden Onfroy (younger brother)

Aiden is XXXTentacion’s younger brother from the same parents. He is not active on social media and prefers to stay in the shadow.

XXXTentacion has one more half-sibling from his father’s side.


He died at a very young age, and it’s a tragedy because of the early passing of a great personality, whom his fans had no chance to understand.

The rapper, who has released two hit albums – “17” and “?”, could easily be imprisoned – for beating his pregnant ex-girlfriend. It sounds not so heroic, isn’t it? Nevertheless, XXXTentacion has already been ranked as “the voice of his generation”.

He was born on January 23, 1998, in Plantation, FL, in a poor family of immigrants from Jamaica. Little Jahseh Onfroy (the real name of the rapper) was brought up mostly by his grandmother. It was she, who taught him to love music and took the boy to the church choir. Unfortunately, he arranged a fight with his peer and was excluded from there.

He wasn’t academically successful, and soon the boy left school. His way of life wasn’t ideal – he sold drugs, stole cars and got into numerous fights regularly.  In 2014 he appeared in juvenile detention and spent the whole year there. In 2016 the young man violated the law again – he did the armed robbery and was imprisoned.

It’s hard to believe, that he found the time for music in his complicated and dangerous life, but since the earliest years Jahseh liked it. He played the piano and the guitar in the shelter for troubled kids. In his teens, he fell in love with rock.

The young man started to perform professionally in 2013. He recorded a song “News/Flock” and uploaded it on SoundCloud (online audio platform). He chose the stage moniker “XXXTentacion”, where “XXX” stands for “pornography” and “Tentacion” is “temptation” from Spanish.

He awoke popular after the release of the single “Look at Me”. After that, he released two studio albums in a row. Probably, XXXTentacion could become the hip hop symbol of his generation, but his sudden death changed the plans. In June 2018 the rapper was shot by a stranger, while he was leaving the Riva Motorsports (the motorcycle shop), where he was looking for a new bike.

Interesting and fun facts

  1. In 2017 his managers had to cancel his free concert, because too many fans came to listen to his scandalous songs. The fire department insisted, the show had to be canceled on safety reasons. After that, his fans went into the streets for demonstration.
  2. His height was 5 ft 6 in, and his weight was 143 pounds.
  3. His debut album “17” reached the second position in Billboard 200 after its release.
  4. He was killed in his car by a stranger, who shot him several times and then took his Louis Vuitton bag. The rapper died in a hospital without coming out of the comma. The reason for his murder is not known, probably, it was a robbery.
  5. He dated Geneva Ayala, whom he met online, in 2016. The rapper physically abused her after he got jealous because of her. In 2016 he appeared behind the bars for beating Geneva. After releasing from prison the hip hop artist tried to hurt her again when he heard that she was pregnant from another man.

  • dInOsAuR?❤️???♋️? says:

    He did nothing to deserve to die and he didn’t deserve to die the way he did its so annoying to me he should have at least lived long enough to meet his son and I hope hes living peacefully at least I hope that his family will see him some day he wasn’t the one who should have been taken and I hope who ever killed him gets what they deserved.Also Everyone keeps telling me that time heals all wounds, but no one can tell me what I’m supposed to do right now. Right now I can’t sleep. It’s right now that I can’t eat. Right now I still hear his voice and sense his presence even though I know he’s not here. Right now all I seem to do is cry. I know all about time and wounds healing, but even if I had all the time in the world, I still don’t know what to do with all this hurt right now.RIPPPPPPP TO THIS ONE AND ONLY LEGEND WHO HEALED OTHERS DEEP DOWN INSIDE??❤️❤️????????????????????????☹️☹️????STAY SAFE IN HEAVEN LEGEND!!!!!!! ;~;
