Im a bit late to this, but whatever here's my 2 cents. X did not deserve to die, even though he had done some pretty awful things you can't judge a person on their flaws alone. Everybody in life has their own path, and every individual has made their own mistakes regardless of how big or small they are. He was only 20, hell I just turned 20 this year, his life was barely beginning and his music career was just starting to take a turn for the better. He was a genius, he could rap, sing, and make his own beats, all of which he put on full display with his Album ?. X was trying to send a positive message to people of our generation for the better, he didn't let the negativity from his past mistakes stop him from trying to better himself as a person. If you even bothered to look at the other things he's done you'd see all the good he's contributed to society to repent for them. He tried to inspire millions of people to live their lives to the fullest, and to never lose hope despite the struggles they might endure. You can't judge someone when you haven't done a thing to leave a mark on the world.
