Before his untimely passing, XXXTentacion shared in an Instagram Live video about what he wanted his legacy to be after he died.

He said: "If worse thing comes to worst, and I f***ing die or some s**t and I'm not able to see out my dreams, I at least want to know that the kids perceived my message and were able to make something of themselves and able to take my message and use it and turn it into something positive and to at least have a good life. If I'm going to die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least five million kids happy or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me!"

XXXTentacion had penned a will before his passing, with his estate being left to his mother and his brothers. Since his tragic death, it has also been revealed that he was set to become a father but it is not known if the document will be altered to include the child.
